Belfast City Marathon moves into its 40th year in 2022 with new title sponsor Mash Direct. Belfast is one of the leading marathons in the UK and Ireland and is an AIMS certified race and qualifying event for the Abbott World Marathon Majors Wanda Age Group Rankings.

Starting at the iconic Stormont Estate, the event is expected to bring thousands of participants and supporters to Belfast.  Though the vast majority of entrants are local, the event proves to be of great interest 40 years on with registrations from USA, Japan, Australia, across Europe and beyond. 

Whether you’re a marathon athlete, keen walker, fundraiser, interested in athletics at school or simply love a challenge, there is an event to suit you on Sunday 1 May 2022.

The event will be working closely with their Official Charity Partner – Cancer Focus Northern Ireland. Participants are encouraged to be #StrongerTogether and run, walk or wheel for team Cancer Focus NI in 2022 to help more people survive from cancer.

Final entry will be at midnight on Friday 8 April 2022.
