Check-in! : We will be asking all registered participants to check in online approximately two weeks from the event. The Check-in process will result in a simpler event experience for you by removing the usual on-the-day administration. Within the Check-in process we will ask you to: 1) Confirm your preferred postal address to enable your participant number to be posted out, 2) Watch the mandatory event safety video.

This event showcases a breathtaking stretch of world-famous coastline which includes the Giant's Causeway, Northern Ireland's first UNESCO Heritage Site. You will run alongside the awe-inspiring geological wonder of 40,000 interlocking basalt columns as you experience some of the best scenery in the country.

Your 20 mile coastal route is located entirely within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and features dramatic cliffs, sandy beaches and ancient castle ruins.

Perfect for those who have aspirations to run marathons and beyond to test the water as well as representing a tough but beautiful challenge in it's own right!

This event is part of the 2023-24 Season Leaderboard!

In Person : Looking for somewhere to grab a bite to eat and a well-deserved drink after the event? We recommend The Quays Gastropub - only a stone's throw from the Event Base, they'll be serving lunch from 1200-1600 with indoor and outdoor seating in their famous Q garden.

Sunday Swim! : Help those legs recover with a quick dip in the ocean. Join the Endurancelife Team at West Strand Beach, Portrush, 10am on Sunday after the event. Convene at the event marquee for those brave enough! (NB - this is just a friendly and informal gathering and you enter the water at your own risk.)
