Back 2 School 5k Virtual Relay

Date: September 2020

Deep RiverRock Belfast City Marathon organisers have launched a Virtual 5K Relay event to celebrate children returning to school.  

With over 1,832 schools in Northern Ireland embracing for their return under new guidelines, children will be faced with many changes and perhaps challenges – however one thing that shouldn’t be any different is exercise. 

It is hoped that 5,000 runners, walkers and joggers will complete a 5k during the month of September.  

For these 30 days, children, parents, teachers and other members of the public should come together to pass the baton ‘virtually’ through exercise. 

Cost is £10 per person and all registrants will receive a special medal. The event is open for all ages but children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a responsible adult. There is also an option to purchase an event tech t-shirt for £5 at registration.
