Ridge & Summit


We would recommend this route to those runners who enjoy the technical element but dislike getting their feet wet. Starting from the main gate opposite the car park, we will journey up the main avenue towards the visitor centre.  Once past we will turn right onto Divis Ridge route, climbing steadily up the ridge route which encompasses sties to climb and one bridge crossing. With spectacular views across Belfast and beyond. At the end of the ridge route the first water station is ahead, a nice long descent, but don’t get too comfy as long gradual ascent awaits, taking a sharp left and climbing very steadily to the “summit trail”. This is a natural rock path and caution should be taken at the top of the summit remember to take in the views, and the second water station, remembering to say Hi to the marshal, a long descent awaits. You will descend steadily down a tarmac path allowing you to stretch those legs, at the very bottom of the path you will turn right and travel along the main path to the finish line.
