The perfect 'end of year' trail ultra marathon, marathon and half marathon event. A looped course, with participants completing one loop for a half marathon, two for a full marathon and three for the ultra (40 miles). There will also be a 10k that will follow part of the course. The route will be based solely within the confines of Tollymore Forest Park, Newcastle, Co Down, and will showcase the beauty of Tollymore, following a series of trails throughout the Forest whilst all the time taking in the spectacular scenery of this location.

In short:
This was a fantastic fun event through the brutal hills of Tollymore Country Park. This was my 74th marathon or ultra and differently one of my all-time favourites. I finished 2nd place overall.

Brutal, beautiful and a free burger

Never underestimate those hills! A stunning 2 lapper in Tollymore Forest Park (Game of Thrones was filmed here) with 2 brutal hills on each lap totalling 4000’ of ascent. Decided to relax and enjoy it as quite soon after Chicago and ran with my big brother. We loved the first lap and slogged out the 2nd. Will definitely go back but will build in a bit of hill training next time! There’s also an ultra (3 Laps), half (1 lap) and a 10K. Bonus free burger and beer at the end :)
