63k Ultra Race

The Ultra (39.3m) – Start – Moville – Time 7.00am – (Stage 1 – The first 13.1 mile)
The starting horn will set runners off along the beautiful shore path then onto road and the first climb of the day up to 300ft by mile 3. A breather and breath taking views ahead as the Ultra runners makes it back onto the shore path then over grass tracks, beach and a few rocks as you enter the lovely fishing village of Greencastle and back onto tarred surface again for the next 3 coastal miles to Shrove. Embarking onto a 5 mile mountain track shows the majestic coastline of Donegal with the causeway coast visible at a distance.
Stage 2 – Starting with a fabulous view over Lough Foyle for 2 mile before runners embark on a tough 2 mile climb over Ballymacarthur Hill followed by a sharp decline into the “Back Glen” near Kinnego Bay. A narrow path section will slow things down a little now followed by a short rocky section leading onto the beautiful Kinnego bay and passing the watery grave of a Spanish Armada before getting onto road, all in all a very slow but very interesting mile. All this followed by a further tough 1 mile climb then the course calms down to more normal terrain and beautiful coastline at Tremone. Weaving through small villages of Ballymagaraghy and Carrowmenagh and eventually complete a flat 2 mile off road single track.
Stage 3 – Final Half) Mostly flat and declining terrain over the next 6 mile section. In all cases participants are surrounded with captivating landscapes and scenery. So now it’s onto the last climb of the day. with an immediate 1.5k off road climb. The next 5k is all undulating hill track with the final 2k of Hill track descending and offering a panoramic view of East Inishowen and the Northern Causeway Coast. The final 6k is on road along the West Coast banks of the Foyle
