The race returns on Sunday 5th May 2024, starting at Stormont Estate, a major tourist and visitor attraction on the outskirts of Belfast, and finishing in Ormeau Park, the oldest municipal park in the city.
There is an event to suit all levels of fitness including a Marathon Run, Wheelchair Race, Team Relay and 8 Mile Walk. Attracting over 15,000 participants annually, the Moy Park Belfast City Marathon proudly secures its place as the largest mass sport participatory event in Northern Ireland.
The Belfast City Half Marathon, Northern Ireland’s biggest half marathon event, will return on Sunday 22nd September 2024.
