Description

Join the 'Glengormly Galloper' and other running enthusiasts, as they take part in the 1987 Belfast Marathon.

In these rushes, we see the start of the race, with the throng of competitors setting off. As the race progresses, follow the runners along Donegall Road, up the Falls Road, past the Royal Victoria Hospital and on towards Andersonstown. Along the way, the runners are chaperoned by members of the army and RUC.

At the close, witness Scottish runner Calum Bark cross the finish line in first place, with a time of 2:17:47.
