Join #TeamOrange at the Belfast City Marathon! 


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

Last year’s race saw a record number of participants, the launch of a new route and a new start location on the grounds of the iconic Stormont Estate. The race will be held on a Sunday for the second time ever, starting at 9am at Stormont and finishing at Ormeau Park.

There’s something for everyone with the line up of events including: the Full Marathon and Wheelchair Race, a Team Relay, an 8 Mile Walk and the Fun Run.

2020’s marathon will improve on last year’s new route covering all areas of Belfast to include plenty of support from all the local residents. The course will be flatter and faster so will be ideal for your first marathon or a personal best, and the organisers have promised not to add in an extra 0.3 miles like last time!

The Belfast event is renowned for the incredible local support and crowds to cheer you on throughout your 26.2 miles. With lots of spectator spots around the route, your friends and family can come out and support you on the day and we can provide branded balloons and cheer sticks to ensure they stand out in the crowd!

By signing up to take on one of the events at the Belfast City Marathon, you’ll be helping to take us another step closer to the day when we beat muscular dystrophy.
