The Red Dress Fun Run

The Red Dress Fun Run

  • 26 Feb 2023 (morning)
  • Stormont Estate, Belfast

Join Northern Ireland Chest Heart and Stroke for the most heartwarming event of the year…

The Red Dress Fun Run, supported by MACE and Musgrave MarketPlace, is a five kilometre event which aims to raise funds for the charity’s care and prevention services and research, as well as awareness for heart disease. What makes the event different is that it is an all-inclusive fun run and people of every generation, age and ability are encouraged to take part by running, walking, dancing, skipping or wheeling the route.

To make this event the best it can be, they need your help!
