26 Extreme Ltd are pleased to announce the Causeway Coast Marathon and other events which will take place on Saturday 23 September 2017. 

The Causeway Coast Marathon and "Ultra Marathon" will be "out and back" routes and will follow the paths, tracks, beaches and coastline of the Causeway Coast Way. The Ultra will start in Portstewart and will follow the Causeway Coast Way to Portballintrae. From here it will pick up the Marathon Route and will follow the tracks and trails between Portballintrae and Ballintoy Harbour. This Marathon will be an "out and back" route almost entirely off road, passing The Giants Causeway, Dunseverick Harbour, White Park Bay, Ballintoy Harbour before turning at the quaint Harbour and returning along the same route. The scenery on the outward and homeward legs of the event is truly spectacular.

The entire route passes through magnificent coastline scenery with fine views of wide bays, sandy beaches, dramatic cliffs and off - shore rocks, all of which characterise the Causeway Coast, making its beauty and uniqueness world famous.

In addition to the Marathon there will also be a Half Marathon and a 10k run / walk incorporated into the route - these races, like the Marathon, will also finish in Portballintrae. There will also be a "Challenge Walk" on the day along the full 26 mile route of the Causeway Coast Way.

The route will be fully waymarked - therefore navigation skills will not be a requirement for this event.

This coastline has inspired tales of giants, fairies, battles and shipwrecks - hopefully each and every competitor in this event can return home with memories and tales of this fantastic event.
