Local events not to miss this May.
Belfast City Marathon
Monday 4th May, Belfast
Having just returned from running the London Marathon, I know how hard it is to run the whole 26.2 mile and how much the continuous support helps. Get out and support the runners and check out Ormeau Park, where the finish line is, for a day of fun.
