Belfast City Marathon

October 3

Sign up for the Belfast City Marathon this October to support the vital work of Cancer Fund for Children, helping local families living with the impact of a cancer diagnosis.

After a challenging year, this is the perfect opportunity to set yourself a goal and push yourself to your physical limits. Whether you are completely new to running or dabble your toes already, it’s a great way to exercise with focus. Running will help improve your fitness, as well as your physical and mental health. Setting yourself the target of running a marathon may seem like a big goal, but really it is very achievable and guaranteed to bring a sense of pride and personal achievement.

By fundraising for Cancer Fund for Children, knowing that you are making a real difference to the lives of children affected by cancer across Northern Ireland, will help spur you on to the finish line.

If you don’t feel like taking on the full marathon, why not get some friends or colleagues together and run as a relay team, each taking on a leg of the route? There is also a fun run and a marathon walk so there is something for everyone and all abilities.
