Lurig Challenge

Lurig Challenge 3.8miles 1:00 pm

The start time this year is 1 pm from the centre of Cushendall.

It is about 3.8 miles (6.0 km) with 375 metres of climb.

The race registration is at the end of the main street, in a courtyard to the right. You can pre-enter by post. There is a max entry of 400. Once this is reached there will be no more entries. Race entry is £15. This includes our 25th Anniversary technical T Shirt and all finishers will receive a medal with the usual food and refreshments afterwards.

The race starts and finishes from the Square. The route is along a farm track for about a mile and then climbs up the increasingly steeper North face of Lurigethan. The descent is by the same route, with quite steep short grass over the first section. For most people fell shoes would give added confidence over the descent compared to any extra speed gained using trail or road shoes on the track part.
