Annual Causeway Coast Challenge walk.

The annual Causeway Coast Challenge Walk for 2020 is set to run again this year on Sunday 3rd May. This event run by local club Bannside Ramblers is now in its 42nd year of operation and continues to attract walkers from all over Ireland and further afield.

This spectacular walk commences at the community hall at Portballintrae, Co. Antrim and follows the spectacular coastal cliff top path along Runkerry beach and via the famous Giant's Causeway to eventually reach Port Bradden where participants turn and retrace their steps. This takes the total distance of the challenge walk to over 30km of stunning views and scenery. The path is well marked and defined and contains a number of stepped ascents and descents totalling over 900m and crosses rocky foreshores.

Registration takes place on the day strictly between 8am and 9am at Portballintrae village hall. Walkers completing the event by 5pm will receive a commemorative car sticker and signed certificate for their efforts.

Participants are reminded that they should bring sufficient food and water to complete the distance and also wear suitable clothing and footwear for the prevailing conditions.
