Trainers illustrationThese highly popular races, starting and finishing in the centre of Belfast, are great for all abilities. In addition to May's full marathon distance, there's an 8-mile walk and Fun Run. Or you could even choose to divvy up the 26.2 miles by taking part in the Team Relay!

The half marathon then takes place in September, giving you the summer months to get up to speed.

We'd love to have you on our team!

How you’ll make a difference

Abuse changes childhoods, but so can we. By taking part in an event for the NSPCC, you’ll make sure that when a child needs a helping hand, we’re there for them.

Child abuse is preventable, not inevitable. That’s why, every day, we work to protect children and make child abuse a thing of the past.
