Spar Craic10km The SPAR Craic 10K saw hundreds of runners take to the streets of Belfast on the morning of 17 March: ST Patrick’s Day.

The race left City Hall at 9am, linking West and East Belfast as the route passed through the Gaeltacht and Cathedral Quarters before finishing at Titanic Slipways.

Every registered runner in the Craic 10K was helping the final fundraising push for the Northern Ireland Hospice rebuild of Somerton House.

All entrants received a commemorative T-shirt from O’Neills, a ‘goodie’ bag, a bottle of Tipperary Water, a banana provided by Total Produce, as well as a voucher for a pint of Clonmel 1650 or a non-alcoholic Becks. All finishers receive a medal.

The Craic 10K will allowed 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.
