    • Did the event in 2018

      A great event, only my second marathon and much more enjoyable than my 1st thats for sure.

      Race was run on Bank holiday monday although I beleve this has changed for 2019.

      Wasa great way to explore the city and saw many areas that I would otherwise have missed visiting the city for the first time as I was.

      The course was very hilly, and very tough not that I really noticed this until my legs began to fail me after 20-22 miles.

      There was a relay element to the marthon which made for quite a bit of movement of places which I actually enjoyed as it spurned me on.

    • Did the event in 2018

      For my first marathon this was a great experience. Far hillier than described (something which I understand is being taken into account for 2019) but loved the challenge. This criss-crossing of the route alllowed family the opportunity to cheer on in multiple spots which was great. Drinks stations were plentiful which was a must in warm conditions.

    The Coast 2 Coast Mountain Stage is an individual event, happening on Sunday the 21st May. So if cycling and kayaking over 270km across Ireland isnt for you but you would like to compete or just take part in the final stage of this gruelling event then look no further.

    You will start the mountain race at the same location the Coast 2 Coast Multi Sport competitors make the transition from bike to Run in Kilbroney Park, Rostrevor and follow the same route as them to the finish line in Newcastle. In fact we are timing it so you will be running with the majority of them. With over 32km of mountain roads, forest tracks, open mountain trails and a summit of Northern Irelands Highest peak, Slieve Donard, to navigate, this isnt a challenge for the faint of heart.

    Mourne Way Marathon

    About the event
    From the organiser

    Having established itself as one of Irelands premier off road running events this event is set to attract participants from across the world that will come to compete alongside fellow runners on this spellbinding route.

    We are offering Ultra Marathon, Marathon, Half Marathon and 10k distances. There will be a challenge walk event for a charity, which will be for Northern Ireland Chest Heart & Stroke.

    The beauty of the Mourne Way events is that all routes are fully waymarked and do not cross the tops of any mountains. They traverse the foothills of the mountains as opposed to crossing them and in doing so all participants will be able to enjoy the views of the mountains without having to climb them. The Mourne Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is a unique; largely granite landscape shaped by ice and man, with stunning vistas of coast, sea and countryside and all competitors will get a chance to take in these sights along the route. As with all 26 Extreme events, there will be a high level of support and feed stations en route.

    Participants in all events will be chipped timed by our timing partner Jaguar Platinum Systems.

    • Did the event in 2016

      So they changed the route of tge long standing waterside half marathon. I did the race last year and It was a walk in the park compared to the beast this year. The race kicked off at 10:00 am this morning at Ebrington square the first mile was a gradual uphill until we reached the Broomhill hotel then we had a nice downhill to settle into your stride before going under the foyle bridge on the new greenbelt walkway. We seemed to be cruising along chatting at a nice pace 8:30 min miles and took in the grounds of gransha before heading to the main road and the part I wasn't looking forward to the foyle bridge itself 2 mile long and a steep climb to the crest. I managed to keep my cool and took the pace back slightly and cruised down the other side. Then the sting in the scorpion tail a short sharp uphill to the foyle hospice then a fast downhill section and from then we were on the flat along the river foyle and the sun came out which made it a lovely morning. I had a stich at the 8 mile mark so had to pull it back slightly and couldn't get my rythem back and gradually slowed down the last section was over the the lovely peace bridge which was another climb and finished on the running track at the new foyle areana leisure center. I was slower than last year but don't care because it was far hard well done Derry Strabane counsel this is a worth course and can't wait till next year when I do more hill work.

      Participated in the 26Extreme Tollymore Trail 10k event 3 times and on 3rd attempt managed to come 3rd. All events are very well organised with plenty of sign posting, adequate water stations and post-race refreshments. I'd recommend 26Extreme for anyone wanting to try a running or ultra event. Looking forward to attending again.

      Second year running this Ultra... fantastic event...well organized and great atmosphere..!!
    • Did the Marathon in 2018

      I thought the event was amazing, it wasn't my quickest marathon but it certainly felt like it with all the different terrain and scenery keeping your mind off of the pain in my legs. The only thing I would suggest is that trail trainers should be advised a little more strongly just because of the terrain.
