Mid and East Antrim Council has signalled its continued support for the event, scheduled to take place in August.

While the exact details of the race, which last year saw the appearance of Sir Mo Farah put the borough on the world stage, are still being confirmed, elected members at the first Full Council Meeting of 2021 agreed to support the 2021 event, and noted the organisers’ intention to apply to Council’s Grants Programme for financial assistance.

Mayor Peter Johnston said: “I look forward to hearing more about the plans for this year’s event, scheduled for August 29 2021, and can assure the organisers of the race that Council will continue to support them in their drive to develop this key event.”
