Marathon “Health Month” making February your new health resolution

2 February 2018

Eat cleaner.  Hydrate more.  Join a gym and exercise three times per week.  Just some of the New Year health resolutions you planned and perhaps broke by the second week of January.  Or maybe you’re still going strong, well done getting this far!



Should you need some motivation to kick start your health plans again and keep going, the Deep RiverRock Belfast City Marathon returns with their “Health Month” throughout February!

February sees a full schedule of health activities and promotional visits across Northern Ireland linking in with their Official Transport partner Translink and a host of new event sponsors including Intersport, GLL Better Leisure Centres Belfast and Framar Health to name a few.  

Health Month launches with a visit to Intersport, Rushmere Shopping Centre Craigavon on Saturday 3rd February from 11am.  There’ll be “healthy” goodie bags up for grabs and spot prizes, including the chance to win a pair of ASICS trainers!

Furthermore, event sampling partners White’s Oats and Linwoods go head to head during the Deep RiverRock Belfast City Marathon “Cook Off” on Saturday 10th February at the Mencap Centre, Belfast.  The Experiment 26.2 Group (currently training for their first ever marathon) will be split into teams and have the task of cooking tasty marathon fuelled, healthy recipes, as created by White’s Oats and Linwoods.  All of which will be shared online after at www.belfastcitymarathon.com

Deep RiverRock Belfast City Marathon encourages you to follow their Health Month online and on their Facebook, Twitter and Instagram platforms.  There’ll be weekly nutrition and training advice from the experts, plus great prize giveaways.  Enough to keep you motivated this February!

Perhaps you’ll be inspired to enter your first Deep RiverRock Belfast City Marathon, Team Relay, 8 Mile Walk or Fun Run!  Don’t forget the current entry rate is only valid until midnight on 28th February 2018.
