Chris Lyttle MLA said: “Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice is the official charity of the event so it’s a chance to have some fun whilst making a difference to the lives of local children with life-limiting illnesses.
“This will be a great run as the route will take in lots of our city’s landmarks along the way. I would encourage people to come along and take part for such a worthy cause.
“As we face rising physical and mental health issues, we should be encouraging participation in these types of events to have healthy minds and happy bodies.”
The Solstice Run is a closed road race, taking participants on a journey around the famous inner streets of the City Centre, passing popular landmarks including the Albert Clock, St. George’s Market and the Linen Hall Library. The event will appeal to people of all ages and abilities. For more information about registering or donating, please go to nihospice.org
