Marconi Run returns to Ballycastle

Ballycastle Runners are gearing up for the eagerly anticipated return of their five-mile Marconi Run.

The event will take place on Sunday 26 May, starting at 10am from the tennis courts at Ballycastle seafront.

Participants will follow a stunning route along the flat, fast, Carrickmore Road as far as ‘Marconi’s Cottage’. The return leg will feature a challenging climb up towards Corrymeela but what goes up must come down, and on the descent you’ll enjoy some of the best views the Causeway Coast has to offer before you make your way back to the seafront area.

All participants will receive a much sought after medal designed especially for the occasion, with prizes up for grabs for the top three male and female finishers, and age categories as well – you won’t want to miss! 

There’ll also be a post-race picnic to look forward which is always a highlight of the day.

But be quick! Places are now extremely limited so book yours today at
