SPAR Craic 10K 2020

The 6TH annual SPAR Craic 10K will be taking place in Belfast on St Patrick’s Day, Tuesday 17th March 2020. The SPAR Craic 10K will see almost 2000 runners take to the street of the city on the morning of March 17 in what has been described as Belfast’s first urban run. The race will leave City Hall at 9am.

Organisers of the cross-community event hope as many families as possible take part, beginning their St Patrick’s Day celebrations in a healthy and worthy way, before joining the civic celebrations in the city centre afterwards. Every registered runner in the SPAR Craic 10K will also be helping the Marie Curie with a donation of £1 from every registration going to the charity.

Entry fee includes timing chip and post-event refreshments with all finishers receiving a bespoke 2020 medal. All entries non deferrable and non refundable. 

The March 17 date comes at a perfect time in the training schedule for those preparing for the 2020 Belfast City Marathon in May while it will provide a challenging step up in distance for Park runners.

The idea for a St Patrick’s Day run comes from other cities across the world who incorporate such an event into their annual celebrations.

The SPAR Craic 10K will allow the people of Belfast to celebrate St Patrick’s in a fun, healthy way before they enjoy the parade and party in Custom House Square. There is no better way to unite and build Belfast than by taking it to the streets.
