Run Connswater

Belfast Giants star adds support

Belfast Giants star and East Belfast resident Matt Towe lends a ‘giant’ helping hand to encourage people to support the first Run Connswater through Belfast City’s newest landmark; Connswater Community Greenway. The run will take place 20th August 2017, 10am and will consist of a 10K, 5K flat fast run and children's fun run through landmarks including CS Lewis Square, Victoria Park, Sam Thompson Bridge and the Harbour Estate. 

This exciting new event is organised by Move a Muscle, a Social Enterprise organisation, established with the objective of helping people improve their physical and mental health through exercise.  Charity partner Aware NI hope people will sign up and support the mental health charity which has a weekly support group in East Belfast. Run Connswater is sponsored by Connswater Shopping Centre and Retail Park. For further information visit to register visit:
