Race Over The Glens

Monday 2nd January 2017 

Join us in Glenariff Forest Park for a bracing start to the year. A hill race on paths. The race route will take the form of a one lap route of approximately 6 mile. The terrain is a mixture of road, gravel and grassy paths. Normal running shoes should suffice, however 'trail' type shoes may be advisable/ beneficial in certain conditions. There will be mile markers at every mile and marshals along the route. The sole water station is at the finish point in the main car park.

This race is one to bring the family to - there are good vantage points for supporters in the first and last miles near the Visitor Centre.
