The Cavehill 5 mile run is the last in the #areyoureadyforthehills? Series sponsored by Decathlon.

The 5 mile route traverses some of the most beautiful trail paths in Northern Ireland. It is a very tough but equally rewarding route.

Terrain ranges from tarmac, gravel, mud, grass and steps.
This will be a tough 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 recommended.

The route will be fully marked out with yellow flags and marshals at key points. We will also have a tail runner, a marshal who will stay at the back of the race line in case of any incidents.

First aid will also be provided.

This is a timed run as always with a fab medal, goodie bag, prizes for winners including age category winners, and post-race refreshments.
