Deep RiverRock Belfast City Marathon – Traffic Advice

On Sunday 5th May 2019 at 9am over 8,000 participants will set off from the new start line at Stormont Estate (Prince of Wales Avenue) in a bid to complete the 38th Deep RiverRock Belfast City Marathon.  This includes the Marathon, Team Relay and 9 Mile Walk events.  The Fun Run will start at 9am on Ormeau Embankment.  All events will finish in Ormeau Park.  Over 19,000 participants are expected to take part across all events on Sunday 5th May 2019.

The new marathon route encompasses North, East, South and West of the city.

In line with new road closure legislation, a road closure order has been applied for and motorists should expect some disruption.  Where possible stewards will facilitate traffic and ensure any disruption is kept to a minimum.  Motorists are asked to follow diversion signs and take direction from stewards on the route.

Roads will start to close wholly or partially from around 6am until 4pm.

Once all runners have passed points on the route, reopening of the roads will be managed.  Times for this are available on the Belfast City Council road closure website www.belfastcity.gov.uk/buildingcontrol-environment/road-closures/road-closures.aspx
