Answer the call to the coastline in this 13, 19, or 27.5 mile hike or run along the Causeway Coast in Northern Ireland. Great for athletes looking for a trail challenge, or simply those looking to support a great cause, this event to support Parkinson's UK is sure to take your breath away.

Causeway Coast Challenge routes

Select your choice of 13, 19, or 27.5 miles to traverse along Northern Ireland's Causeway Coast. An area of immense natural beauty, participants will be privy to incredible coastal views for the entire length of the trail, all while knowing they are supporting the great cause of Parkinson's UK.

All of the trails will start by Carrick-a-rede rope bridge, and all trails will have a rest stop at Dunseverick Castle. The 13 mile trail will end at Portballintrae Village Hall, 19 Miles will finish at Portrush, and those completing 27.5 miles will finish at Ulster University Coleraine Campus.

Some spectacular highlights on the course include Dunluce Castle, a now-ruined medieval castle, and of course the mysterious Giants Causeway, the fourth greatest natural wonder in the UK.
