RACES NEAR BELFAST IN 2017

You're truly spoilt for races in and around Belfast. We've listed almost 200 races below. Road, off-road, XC, trail and even relays we have them all... and the list will only grow. The most popular ones will often sell out, so if you are interested please book early. However there are many new and undiscovered gems that you can turn up on the day to race, run or walk. 

 NI Road Relays 2016, there's some fantastic races out there for all abilities and interests, so give them a go!

NI Road Relays 2016, there's some fantastic races out there for all abilities and interests, so give them a go!

Races are listed by distance (5K to Ultra, other) and chronological order to make them easier to scan. We've also added in links to race registration, official sites and if the race is finished we'll link to the results. Everything you need in one place. This is the most comprehensive race list in Ireland, and the only one with built-in links. Note some races are part of a series and/or wider event on the day (e.g. multiple distances, walks, runs and junior age-group races).

NB Ultras can have early starts and may require collecting race pack the day before. Before booking check if you can turn up on the day, and how you get to the race start line (and is it the same as the finish line). If it involves over 1hr travel you may be best factoring in at least one overnight, you will be tired afterwards and/or want to celebrate. Some Ultra events also cater for marathons, HM and 10ks. Please check as these may start at very different times and places, often hours/miles apart. Before booking an ultra, factor in travel (to town & race start), accommodation, post race fatigue and race briefings etc. Some of the Ultra Races are more than 2.5hrs from Belfast but have been included for completeness and based on people travelling further for longer, interesting and/or more competitive races.

NB Marathons can have early starts and may require collecting race pack in the days beforehand. Before booking check if you can turn up on the day, where you can park and how you get to the race start line. Marathons will often try to put people in the same time slots/waves so check especially if you are travelling with someone faster/slower than you. As a rule, once you decide to enter a race, look immediately at accommodation and travel arrangements.
