Pack Collection on Friday will be available at the race start at Seapark between 2pm to 6pm. We will aim to give all entrants as much opportunity as possible on Friday to collect their race pack/register but please ensure you give yourself plenty of time to park, walk in and get ready for the official warm up at 6.40pm.


You can also sign up to run at Pack Collection or on the day at Seapark, however this qualifies as a late entry and therefore we cannot gaurantee t-shirt. If you come and see us after the event and we have spares we will happily give you one! 


To gaurantee your t-shirt sign up online now. £20.00 entry ends Saturday 30th April. Entry fee is £22.00 from 1st May to and including race day.



Transport Options


The nearest train stop to Seapark is Holywood. When you get off the train, turn right and continue along the promenade (less than 1 mile) to Seapark. 


The nearest train stop to Rockport School is Seahill. When you get off the train please follow the path down to Rockport School.


Bag Drop and Collection


There will be an opportunity to leave your belongings at the 10k start location (Seapark) and have them transported to the finish at Crawfordsburn. For the 5Kers, a hall at Rockport will be provided to leave any belongings which you can then collect after the race. A shuttle bus will be provided at the finish line to take you back to both start locations.


Parking Information and Returning to 5K & 10K Start


There is strictly no parking at Rockport School.  We strongly advise you do not park at Seapark either as it will be extremely busy. Please feel free to park in Holywood (less than a mile away) and walk over to Seapark as part of your warm up!


There is limited parking at Crawfordsburn Country park. We encourage you to use the train and car share where possible. The park will be closed to cars once full. 


There will be 4 shuttle buses at Crawfordsburn to return participants to both the 5K start at Rockport and 10K start at Seapark after the event. The buses will return on a regular basis to ensure all participants have the opportunity to be returned to their start location. 




Your Race Time


The race start will be staggered to ensure all participants get the best start. Please be aware of your time and start according to the race time signs. If you are walking the event please start at the back.

Post Race BBQ, Live Entertainment and Kids Activities


We encourage you to bring your friends and family along after the event to enjoy the kids entertainment, BBQ and Apex Physio sports massage at Crawfordsburn! Kids entertainment and massage are complimentary, however please bring money to refuel at the BBQ.


We look forward to sharing the Belfast Telegraph Runher experience with you for another year. Whether it’s your first, furthest or fastest run, Belfast Telegraph Runher Coastal Challenge will be a night to remember!
