Belfast Marathon
Event Type: Marathon
Date: TBC May 2019
Location: Belfast
Registration Fee: n/a
Fundraising Target: Raise as much as you can!

The entire city gets behind this event each year, with over 20,000 runners taking on the course that gives you a tour of the north, south, east and west of the city. Runners and walkers of all speeds are welcomed by an amazingly enthusiastic crowd on route, to a triumphant finish in Ormeau Park. There is also the option of entering relay teams of up to five people, a nine mile walk and a three mile fun run.

Once you have signed up for your place with the race organisers, you can join our team by filling out out our online form. Let us know whether you are taking on the full marathon or running the relay as part of a team.

As well as helping to change the lives of people affected by dementia, there are some great benefits to joining our team. Unite with us, and we will support you through every step of your journey.

Whether you sign up for a charity place or already have your own place, by joining our team you will receive:

  • Our support pack with everything you need to kick off your training and fundraising
  • Comprehensive training plans and advice from our professional training coaches
  • Regular newsletters to keep you motivated
  • Your very own Alzheimer's Society technical running top to wear with pride, and iron on name letters
  • The biggest cheers on race day
  • Our friendly Events Team on hand to help whenever you need us

We know that fundraising can be just as challenging as the event, but we’ll be here to support you every step of the way. When you sign up to run for us, you will receive a support pack with tips and advice to help you with your fundraising, allowing you to make a difference to people living with dementia. 

To kick-start your fundraising in the meantime, why not set up a JustGiving page?
