8 Mile Walk

The Walk Event was introduced in 1997 following public demand and is non-competitive, designed for ramblers and hikers.  It follows a similar route as the main Marathon Run and Wheelchair Race and the Team Relay Event.  Whether you are part of a walking club or want to set a realistic health and fitness goal for 2023, the buzz of race day and being part of the biggest mass sport participatory event in Northern Ireland is an opportunity you don’t want to miss!
