Mash Direct


For the second year, in 2023 the Belfast City Marathon is sponsored by Mash Direct as title sponsor! We are looking forward to a successful series of events in 2023. 

With a shared vision to encourage more people to lead more active and healthier lifestyles, the partnership between Mash Direct and Belfast City Marathon is as perfect as Carrots & Parsnips! Mash Direct is excited to take over from previous sponsor Deep RiverRock, in what is known as a key sporting event in the Northern Ireland calendar. 

The Hamilton Family of Mash Direct love their vegetables, and have been farming the fields around Strangford Lough for six generations. They pride themselves on bringing the freshest vegetable side dishes to your tables, and look forward to encouraging participants, supporters, organisers and volunteers towards a convenient but healthy lifestyle. 

Over the last decade, Belfast City Marathon has evolved to become a not-to-be-missed family day out with something to suit all ages, fitness levels and lifestyles. Now with an 8 Mile Walk, a Fun Run, the full Marathon and much more, the event has captured the hearts and minds of the community. 

Clare Forster, Mash Direct Head of Marketing says, 

"We are excited to be at the start line today for the feel-good event of the year - the Mash Direct Belfast City Marathon in 2023.   

This is an event that brings the best out in people, so we jumped at the chance to team up and promote healthy eating.  We have lots of fresh vegetable dishes to help you to get your five a day plus local potatoes are a great way to carb load!   

Our farm is just a short jog away from the marathon route so this is a dream local partnership for us. We are looking forward to supporting an incredible team of organisers, participants and volunteers who have made the Marathon what it is today." 

Mash Direct have a range of over 50 vegetable side dishes, supplying local stores and supermarkets across the UK and Ireland. They aim to bring the freshest vegetable side dishes from their fields to your tables, with the taste and texture of home made food, but none of the mess or washing up.

Their full range is free from artificial colourings and flavourings and is 100% gluten free.
