Trail langs de spectaculaire Noord-Ierse kust. Van de website:
The 100k is also a qualifying race for Ultra Trail Mont Blanc (UTMB)
The entire route passes through magnificent coastline scenery with fine views of wide bays, sandy beaches, dramatic cliffs and off Ė shore rocks, all of which characterise the Causeway Coast, making its beauty and uniqueness world famous.
Deserted ruins of castles, churches, cairns and forts mark the route and speak of transient time. Defiant Dunluce stands on a cliff, resisting the incessant waves below. Mussenden Temple mocks the harsh cliff face below and the ruined mansion behind. Irish chieftains fought and won possession of lands, a castle and a friary in Antrim. Myths and legends abound with ghosts and giants associated with coastal and inland places.
To travel along the Causeway Coastal Route is to experience one of the most dramatic routes in the world. A recent pole placed the Antrim Coast section of the Causeway Coastal Route in 5th place in a list of the worldís most spectacular views. Some eighty miles of stunning coastline will transport you past rugged and windswept cliffs, spectacular scenery and fabulous unspoilt beaches. Itís a coastline sprinkled with historic castles, churches and forts. Many are now just ruins but each holds the memories of a mysterious and heroic past.
This is a challenging off-road route through forests, glens, bogs and coastline but the satisfaction in finishing it will be an extraordinary achievement for any runner and ultrarunner. The entire route of both events will be fully waymarked with high levels of support along the way.
Ireland is calling you to come and run along the route of this fantastic race. So come race and then raise a pint or two of Guinness among new friends at the post race celebrations.
