The Ceide Coast Half Marathon route begins at the Ceide Fields Visitor Centre (participants will be bussed from Ballycastle Village) where the race will begin from the world-famous visitor centre.
It will then follow the original coast road, passing pretty Ballycastle Beach to Downpatrick Head, where the route will take you off-road, right up and around the headland overlooking Dun Briste.
From this breathtaking Wild Atlantic Signature Discovery Point, the route then proceeds back to idyllic Ballycastle village, where a warm welcome and some refreshments will await you at the finish line.
Registration for both events will take place online only.
