Return to Mencap Northern Ireland
Posted on 24 Aug 24 Aug

Join us at the Half Marathon Mencap Marquee!

Half marathon day isn’t just about the runners. Remember, there will be fun and inclusive activities for the whole family at the finish line. So, pack the pram, invite the in laws or get your mates to cheer you over the line and why not stick around after you finish the race?

Onsite you’ll find refreshments, pop up shop, selfie frames, kids colouring area and face painting, courtesy of Mencap. Not to mention free samples from Linwood’s Health Foods. All this can be found in the Mencap Marquee from 9am until 12 noon, 18 Sept Ormeau Park, Belfast! #doit4mencap

There will be a great buzz throughout the park with music and shout outs from U105, fun fair rides for the kids, food vendors and more. We advise you to park nearby on either the Ormeau or Ravenhill road and walk through the park as road closures will be in place from 7am to 12 noon.

The race starts at 9am and finishes in the same location, Ormeau Park, with first runners expected to cross the finish line at approximately 10am.

Mark your diaries now and meet us there!
