Speaking at the launch of the event, the Mayor of Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council, Alderman Stephen Martin said, “The Vitality Membership Lisburn Half Marathon, 10K Road Race and Fun Run has been a popular event in the running calendar for almost four decades. I know many runners have missed live racing due to the pandemic so there will be some very excited participants eager to get back out training again. “I would warmly encourage families, schools and youth groups to get involved too with proceeds from the event supporting my Mayoral Charities. This year’s Fun Run will be a great opportunity to get moving together and create a memorable night for everyone once again.” Councillor Sharon Skillen, Chair of the Leisure and Community Development Committee, added, “I am delighted to see the return of the Lisburn Half Marathon, 10K Road Race and Fun Run. The event is one of the largest participation sports in Northern Ireland and it has been missed by the thousands of runners who normally take part each year. “With the growing popularity of our Vitality Membership package, the council continues to offer a wide range of events and programmes to get people active. Given the challenge of the last two years, we are aware more than ever about the importance of looking after our physical health & wellbeing through these opportunities. “I would like to encourage both competitive runners and fun runners to sign up for the event and I look forward to cheering you across the finish line on 22 June,” concluded Councillor Skillen.
