Waterside Half Marathon
The 34th Waterside Half Marathon returns to the city on Sunday 6th September with a new and exciting route!
After 10 years the race is returning back to St Columb’s Park where the new route will take runners across the river to the cityside, showcasing our parks, greenways and bridges before finishing at St Columb’s Park.
The new course takes runners across the river Foyle to the cityside, showcasing the river, the Peace Bridge, Gransha Park, Bay Road Park, and utilizing extensive stretches of the riverside Greenway, Ebrington and of course St Columb’s Park and the Foyle Arena. All proceeds on the day will go towards the Mayor’s official charity – Alzheimer’s Society.While it’s a more scenic route it does have its challenges, and I think runners will enjoy the balance of running on the flat interspersed with some hill work as well.
Places are capped at 2,000 to include individual runners, wheelchair athletes and 3 person relay teams. Entries will officially open on June 1st and close on August 21st.
