Marathon Run and Wheelchair Race


The Deep RiverRock Belfast City Marathon isone of the leading marathons in the UK and Ireland. 

The race starts at the Belfast City Hall at 9am and finishes at Ormeau Park.

It follows the same route as the Wheelchair Race and the Team Relay Event.

The route covers all areas of Belfast to include plenty of support from all the local residents.

The route is renowned for being a tough challenge for the marathon entrant, in particular the notorious hill section of the Antrim Road.  However, the Belfast event is equally renowned for the incredible local support and crowds to cheer you on throughout your 26.2 miles!

The 2018 route will remain the same as the 2017 event route.
