You can now register for our Race to Recovery 2020!
We are so excited to announce that registration is now open for our annual Race to Recovery, which will take place in Ormeau Park on Sunday 8th of March.
2020 marks our 8th year of the race, which focuses on the positive outcomes for the thousands of people embarking on the road to recovery. Each year our participants range from those who have used running as part of their own recovery, to people with personal experience of addiction among their family and friends, as well as those who welcome the opportunity to get active and champion an important cause.
Cost: £20 (£15 discounted price for members of running clubs)
The 10K run is time chipped and suitable for dedicated runners or those looking for a challenge. New to running and looking to get fit after the festive period? Why not set our 10k run as your fitness target? Feeling competitive? There will be trophies for 1st-3rd place for men and women. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
Our 3k fun run is perfect for a family day out. Canine participation encouraged! Whatever the weather, Fitness Freddy will get you in the zone with his warm up prerace. There will also be trophies for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. Under 9s must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
