Lurig Challenge Run 2024

Lurig Challenge Run 2024


The Lurig Challenge Run, held on the 10th of August 2024, is the highlight of the Heart of the Glens Festival. Participants are guaranteed an exciting off-road race, breathtaking views and a famously warm Glens welcome. Be prepared for one of the country’s most unique and memorable races.

The 3.8 mile race starts at 1pm in the main street of Cushendall adjacent to the Curfew Tower. After a short dash up the spectator lined main street, there is a sharp incline and a set of steps up the Stony Lonan, followed by a mile long farm track to the base of the mountain. Next comes an assault to the top of Lurig (1073 feet), with spectacular views, before a fast descent down the mountain, back along the farm track for the sprint (or otherwise) to the village and the finish.

Trail/off-road shoes are advised.

Entries capped at 400 – no transfers or refunds will be available.
