Leg-It Events brings you the Cavehill Run. This event was held very successfully in December 2016. It has been decided to bring it forward to September this year so we have a bit more daylight to set up the route on the morning of the event.
This 5 mile run traverses some of the most beautiful trail paths in Northern Ireland.
Terrain ranges from tarmac, gravel, mud, grass and steps. This will be a tough 5 mile climb from the offset with steep sections both on the ascent and descent. The run summits at the 'Napoleon's Nose' taking in spectacular views over Belfast City. Trail shoes are not essential but recommended. The route will be fully marked out with yellow flags and marshals at key points. First aid will also be provided. This is a timed run as always with a fab medal and post race refreshments.
No packs will be sent out before the event. Race numbers etc. can be collected on the day from 9am
The race will start at 11am
Registration and toilets will be at St Gerard's Community Centre, Antrim Rd, BT36 7PG.
The Cavehill Run is a tough, steep 5 mile run — especially for the first 2 miles so be prepared!
The route will be fully marked out and with signs at every mile. There will also be marshals at crucial points.
There will be water at the finish line. Feel free to take a bottle with you if you think you will need it along the way.
Please take any empties back with you.
Leave No Trace
Leg-It Events operate a strict 'Leave no Trace' policy. Please do not drop any rubbish along the route. This area of outstanding natural beauty — lets keep it that way :-)
Trail shoes would be ideal but not a necessity, dress appropriately for the weather in winter running gear with waterproofs if necessary.
Despite this event being held in the height of the summer, we have had a few years of bad weather. This has not taken away from a great day out. Please prepare for every eventuality and bring waterproof clothing just in case.
