The Ballyliffin Coastal Challenge
The Ballyliffin Coastal Challenge is a 10 mile International event which has developed significantly since the opening event in 2010 which attracted close to 500 participants. The event takes place on Easter Saturday and entries can be taken online in the weeks running up to the event via www.visitballyliffin.com
Ballyliffin has rightly become famous as a result of 2 world class golf courses and its beautiful scenery. This coastal challenge has opened up those qualities to a larger percentage of the population not only in the North West but further afield.
The event is held against the backdrop of the Isle Of Doagh, Lagg, Malin and the local iconic landmark that is Glashedy finishing on Pollan Beach. Participants can run, walk or jog this beautiful course. A new feature added in 2012 was races for children. These races were held on the beach and enhanced the family fun element.
The event also extends an invitation to all voluntary organisations in the Inishowen area to use the Coastal challenge as a conduit for raising finance for their club, association etc. The entry fee guarantees a quality T-shirt for all participants and refreshments afterwards in a local hotel
