Half Marathons in Northern Ireland
The 37th Waterside Half Marathon returns to the city on Sunday 1st September. Starting in Ebrington Square, the route will once again take runners across the river to the cityside, showcasing our parks, greenways and bridges before finishing at St Columbs Park.
The 2018 race will also host the NI & Ulster Half Marathon Championship
The Causeway Coast Marathon and "Ultra Marathon" will be "out and back" routes and will follow the paths, tracks, beaches and coastline of the Causeway Coast Way. The Ultra will start in Portstewart and will follow the Causeway Coast Way to Portballintrae. From here it will pick up the Marathon Route and will follow the tracks and trails between Portballintrae and Ballintoy Harbour. This Marathon will be an "out and back" route almost entirely off road, passing The Giants Causeway, Dunseverick Harbour, White Park Bay, Ballintoy Harbour before turning at the quaint Harbour and returning along the same route. The scenery on the outward and homeward legs of the event is truly spectacular.
The course takes in two laps of the Cam Forest. This is a challenging course with some long climbings on this undulating course.
