Races in the Belfast Hills

First up we have the Chain Reaction Cycles Belfast Hills 10K. This takes place on Saturday May 24th. Runners will take on a fast, twisty, course on paths and trails. More information can be found here.
Action On Hearing Loss Divis Mountain 10K
We’re hosting our second 10K run/walk on the spectacular Divis Mountain on 27 July following on from the success of the inaugural event last year.
All funds raised on the day helping to support Action on Hearing Loss NI in our vital work throughout Northern Ireland.
Cost includes a picnic at the finish line and prizes for the winners. Facilities include a cafe, visitors centre and public toilets close by.
The 10k run will take runners over the famous and scenic Divis Mountain high above Belfast City. The route has changed slightly since last year to include the recently opened Ridge Trail. So the race will be even better, with more exciting terrain, making for a tough but very satisfying run/walk, incorporating some of the most stunning views in Northern Ireland.
We will also be holding a 1 mile fun run on the day, so all the family can take part.
T-shirts can be purchased on the day for £5 and hoodies £10.
