Belfast City Marathon Health Month motivating you to Keep Well this February

The Deep RiverRock Belfast City Marathon is back with their official “Health Month” in February with a full schedule of activities, promotional visits and competitions to keep you healthy and active in 2020!

The organisers are delighted to team up with their sponsors and Official Charity Partner, Cancer Focus Northern Ireland, visiting workplaces across Northern Ireland with the charity’s Keeping Well Van.

The Cancer Focus Keeping Well van is a mobile drop-in unit which will bring health checks, cancer awareness and healthy lifestyle information directly to your workplace. This service empowers people to take control of their own health and take steps to lower their risk of cancer.


In addition, employees at each visit will benefit from a Lunchtime Drop-In Centre including nutrition tips and promotions from Official Nutrition Sponsor, Framar Health, healthy recipe cards courtesy of SPAR and fitness challenges from Official Gym Sponsor Better.  Four Star Pizza will also be there to fuel everyone taking part!

Schools across Northern Ireland will be getting involved also with the Secondary Schools Cook Off Challenge, whereby pupils must create a healthy recipe from locally sourced SPAR ingredients which will help them stay fuller and healthier for longer.


Not to mention the big Health Month finale roadshow at Decathlon Belfast, Holywood Exchange!  Taking place on Saturday 29th February between 10am – 2pm, come along and enjoy great offers and competitions in store, get checked out by the Cancer Focus NI Keeping Well Van and why not take part in our runathon challenges and pacer Q&A…and more!

Follow the Deep RiverRock Belfast City Marathon Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages throughout February for lots of “healthy” giveaways, including the opportunity to win a FitBit Versa courtesy of title sponsor Deep RiverRock.  They’ll also keep you motivated with training tips from Official Coach Stuart Kennedy and nutrition tips/recipes from Framar Health.

Perhaps you’ll be inspired to enter your first Deep RiverRock Belfast City Marathon, Team Relay, 8 Mile Walk or Fun Run!  Taking place at Stormont Estate on Sunday 3rd May, participants are encouraged to #MakeItCount in 2020 and run, walk or wheel for Official Charity Partner, Cancer Focus NI to help more people survive from cancer.
