The organisers of this year’s Belfast City Marathon are pleased to announce that the rescheduled 39th Deep RiverRock Belfast City Marathon will go ahead this year, following delays due to COVID-19.

However, due to severe congestion of other cultural events in Belfast during September, the planned date (19th September 2021) has been changed to Sunday 3rd October 2021 to ensure all participants can compete safely to a standard which they are accustomed to.

All registered entrants will AUTOMATICALLY transfer to the new date of 3rd October, so your place is safe.

If this date does not suit, please contact before 30th June 2021 for a deferral, transfer of name/event or full refund.

There are a variety of different options to choose from this year!
