The Belfast course takes you on a journey through the beautiful Stormont Estate. The route includes stunning views of the Carson Statue and Stormont Building when ascending Prince of Wales Avenue. After this the route turns downhill before re-entering the woodland paths, passing the Bullfield and following the tree line back into the Pavilion playing fields. The route covers a mix of terrain including gravel pathways, road and grass. There is one steep incline as part of your challenge, the gradient of which renders this course unsuitable for wheelchairs.
The start line is located on the sports fields near the Pavilion Building.
Event car parking is provided within the Stormont Estate and can be accessed via the Stoney Road entrance. All car parks are only a short walk to the Pavilion playing fields where the start / finish area is placed. Stewards and signage will direct you on the day.
Disabled parking is available in the Pavilion car park for blue badge holders only.
There is a drop off zone located in the car park of the Stormont Hotel on Upper Newtownards Road. Stewards will be in place to ensure the hotel is not used for event car parking.
Unfortunately this event is not suitable for wheelchair users due to the gradient of the hill on Prince of Wales Avenue.
Don’t forget to bring your friends and family along to support you. In front of the Carson Statue offers a fabulous view point of the course and a great place for your supporters to cheer you on after your climb up Prince of Wales Drive.
