Top Marks for Participants in 2nd Deep RiverRock Belfast City Half Marathon

Around 3,800 people are taking part in the Deep RiverRock Belfast City Half Marathon this coming Sunday (14th September 2014).

The event starts and finishes at the King’s Hall Pavilion at 9am with the route taking in all major landmarks around the City Centre including Queen’s University, Botanic Gardens Titanic Quarter, City Hall and many more.

All participants should have received their Race Packs by now including their race numbers, timing chip and instructions and the organisers urge all competitors to check they have this as no packs can be given out on Race Day. If you don’t have your pack please contact the Marathon Office immediately. 

Top local runners to watch out for are Ed McGinley who will be hoping to beat his time of last year 1:08:21 and compete for 1st place against Keith Purdy and Brian Campbell who are running the event for their first time. The ladies competition is also open with none of the top three winners from 2013 competing. Hoping to break Aileen Reid’s time of 1:19:32 will be Gladys Ganiel, Breege Connolly, Louise Smith and Heather Foley.

The organisers are urging all family members, friends and work colleagues to come along and support the runners. There will be plenty of activities to keep everyone busy including games in the Deep RiverRock Hydration Funzone and CLIC Sargent Marquee.

Entries for the event are now closed.
