Ballycastle Athletic Club hosts their annual 10km event, the 10k Coastal Challenge this 14th October, and this year, the club will also host their very first half-marathon. The Ceide Coast Half Marathon and 10km will take in some of the most spectacular scenery in Ireland, right along the Wild Atlantic Way.

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.
