Depending on the length of stay you have booked with us you might arrive before or depart on different days to the following itinerary. The itinerary below reflects the 2 night package. Belfast is an vibrant, welcoming city with plenty to see and do, so extra nights are recommended.
Saturday, 29 April – Today is an arrival day for those on the 2-night package. Make your own way to your city centre hotel for check-in from 3pm.
Today, you will need to make your own way to the expo located at the Titanic Exhibition Centre (TEC) for you to register and collect your runner pack. There will also be a race briefing at your hotel reception at 6pm. The evening is free to enjoy at leisure and prepare for the challenge ahead.
Today is your final opportunity to visit the Direct Mash Belfast Marathon Expo, to collect your race bib. We strongly advise you to arrive as early as possible (or book an extra night to arrive on Friday) to ensure that do not miss the Expo > No Bib = No Race
Sunday, 30 April – It’s RACE DAY. After an early breakfast we will join a transfer to the race start out at Stormont Estate at 9am. The 2023 Marathon route runs through all 4 areas of Belfast; North, South, East and West, starting at Stormont Estate and finishing in Ormeau Park. Your hotel is within walking distance from the finish line. The evening is free for you to celebrate your achievement however you like.
Monday, 01 May – Departure Day. Today we say our farewells after one last delicious breakfast. If you are looking to extend your time in Belfast, we can arrange to book you extra nights, available on request.
Otherwise it’s not goodbye but instead we’ll see you next time as we hope you will join us for another Missing People and Marathon Tours & Travel trip.
