Ultra Marathon
Half Marathon
Route information
The event will be looped with participants completing laps of the half marathon course. 10k runners will follow a shorter loop.
Recent flooding that struck the Mournes and submerged ½ of Newcastle had a devastating impact on many of the bridges and riverside paths in Tollymore. As a result the course will be slightly different from previous years as all the wooden bridges have been washed away. We are currently mapping and agreeing an amended course with detail to be uploaded to the event page by the middle of October. The course will be similar to past years with mostly gravel fire roads and small sections of single track.
