The Inaugural Midnight Marathon and Half Marathon

We Run Wild NI are excited to announce the inaugural Midnight Marathon and Half Marathon Run/Walk on 1st February. On the stroke of midnight runners and walkers will leave from Carrickfergus Castle and run along lanes, trails, rural roads and through forests. The vast majority is off Road and is quite a challenging course, but with generous cut offs for all.

Our concept is to take running back to nature, to running for enjoyment and to be self sufficient on your run and so all taking part must carry a mandatory kit (water, food, mobile phone and torch).

This event is unique to NI as it is the only Midnight Marathon/Half and you self navigate following a step by step roadbook (no navigational skills needed) so this is your chance to be involved in a unique event!

Every participant receives a road book, post event refreshments and a fabulous medal. We have run this event twice, during daytime and the feedback has been amazing so this is a chance to go one step further! So get your torches ready and register.

Have a look on our website for runners rave reviews of the event/course and our FB for chat about the event. Registration now open on si entries:
