The 10km will start at the Ozone Leisure Complex on Ormeau Embankment and follows a flat, fast and accurately measured course around the city centre and tow path before finishing back at the Ozone.
There are attractive cash & voucher prizes on offer this year and EVERY finisher will receive a chipped time, refreshments and an £8 voucher which can be redeemed in the Belfast Up and Running store.
The 2011 event also sees the introduction of a new “CORPORATE CHALLENGE” for the first time.
This challenge will provide local employers with a chance to team build, do something active and at the same time raise money for their nominated charity.
Businesses who enter 20 or more people will have £2 per team member donated to a charity by the sponsors.
The following rules apply to the Laganside Corporate Challenge:
- There is no limit to the number of people on a team.
- HOWEVER,only the first three runners from a team will count.
- Runners can only run for one team - a club runner will not be counted in the corporate challenge.
Simply contact firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm details of your charity when you have the 20+ size team entered.
For those not quite ready for 10km, there is a more relaxed 2.5km Fun Run taking place in Ormeau Park at 1.30pm.
