Everything you need to know

The Hoka One One Runher Titanic 5K and 10K event starts at 09:30 am on Sunday, October 21st 2018 in the Paddock area just behind the main Titanic building and beside the slipway.
A Dash for Kids of approx. 400 metres for the U11s will take place at 9am with the option for the older kids of running two loops.
There will be a warm-up at 9.20am before the main event.
The 5K and 10K will start together with the numbers colour-coded. The faster runners should move to the front and walkers to the back.


There is no parking in the Paddock area (it is reserved for Officials and Marshals).
There is paid car parking in the underground car park at Titanic or opposite the Titanic Hotel - all close to the start.
You might consider being dropped off, car-sharing,taking the new Glider bus or taking the train to the Titanic halt and walking over.
Be aware tickets will be issued for any illegal parking on the roads around the area.


Roads are not closed so please be careful and be directed by marshals and the harbour police.
The course for both the 5K and 10K leaves from the Paddock area at Titanic and turns left up the Queen’s Road,weaving around the Harbour Estate and back, via Commercial Park, onto the Queen’s Road.
There’s then another left turn onto a ‘disused’ road leaving the dry dock and the yellow cranes on the left.
Just passed the 3K mark the routes diverge with the 5K doing a U turn and retracing its steps to the finish and the 10K heading out over recently resurfaced ground(passed Funderland!) onto the Sydenham Road (where you should run in the cycle lane).
Then it’s through the roundabout and onto the Airport Road( please stay to the left on the footpath or inside the cones) crossing at the lights at Bombardier into Victoria Park at 5K.
It’s about a mile clockwise around Victoria Park where there is a water station crossing back over Sam Thompson bridge and retracing the route back to the finish in the Paddock area.
You will be delighted to know that the course is flat.

Press release

Hoka Runher Series breaks new ground

A new title sponsor and a first for women’s-only running in Ireland provide the headlines for the 2018 Hoka Runher Series.
The first event up will be the Runher Coastal Challenge on Friday evening, May 25th, featuring — for the first time — a women’s half-marathon following the Belfast Lough shore path from Holywood to Bangor, retracing its steps to finish in Crawfordsburn Country Park.
The 21K/13.1 mile women’s-only event will be the first of its kind in Ireland with only two others listed in Europe this year in Odense, Denmark and Madrid, Spain.
The Runher half-marathon will sit alongside the popular and well-established 5 km and 10 km events on the night. The series will once again be run in association with Pure Running, and business owner and race director Michael Jenkins says:

I guess we’ve been building up to this for the eleven years that Runher has been going — starting out with a 5K, then an 8K, a 10K and now 21K.
The Runher community has been growing with us and extending its ambitions and we’re excited about offering this fresh challenge along that most scenic of run routes and hopefully providing a great start to the Bank Holiday weekend.
We are also delighted that Hoka One One, the world’s fastest growing running shoe company, has come onboard to join us in this new venture, and our long-time media partner the Belfast Telegraph will still be with us to capture the build-up and the series on its digital platform.”

Elizabeth Brown, Sports Marketing Manager for Hoka One One says,

Winning with women is a key focus for us in 2018. With the expansion of the Runher Series to include a half marathon event this year, we’re therefore very excited to be announced as title partner and look forward to supporting female runners across the island of Ireland with our products and education.”

There will be three start points: Rockport School for the 5 km event (6:30 pm), Seapark, Holywood for the 10 km event (7:15 pm) and The Dirty Duck on Kinnegar Road, Holywood for the half marathon (6:30 pm) with all three finishing in Crawfordsburn Country Park where a barbecue, some kids’ entertainment and a post-race massage from Apex Physio will be available.
The Series will conclude with Runher Titanic 5K and 10K on Sunday morning, October 21st 2018 in the Titanic Quarter.
