There will also be a Fun Run event for all ages starting and finishing at the Mary Peters Track. The Fun Run will be capped at 200 participants, so places will be given on a first come, first serve basis. The route will be 1k (2.5 laps of the Mary Peters Track).
The good news is that you have until 8th September to enter just in case you make a last minute decision to run.
Entries are open at www.belfastcitymarathon.com.
