The Lurig Challenge Run, held on 10th of August, 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 and, if you survive, treat yourself to a well-earned pint afterwards!

The 3.8 mile race starts at 1pm in the main street of Cushendall adjacent to the Curfew Tower. After a short dash down the spectator lined main street, there is a sharp incline and a set of steps up the Stony Lonan, followed by a mile along a 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 back along the farm track for the sprint (or otherwise) to the village and the finish.

Trail shoes are advised.
