Belfast Hills 10 mile Divis Mountain Challenge (DMC)

The Pure Running Divis Mountain Challenge (DMC) will be held on Saturday 25th June 2016.

Covering a distance of 10 miles over the Divis Mountain trails, runners will cover some of the most stunning scenery in Belfast.  The route will encounter styles, stone steps, gravel and batman paths as well as some bog trails.  This can be a technical course so we recommend that all participants ensure they use appropriate footwear and equipment.

Due to the technical nature of the event, we are not awarding position prizes for this run but there will be a moment for every finisher.  It will be a timed run but a personal challenge for all participants to run as hard as they want to push for their own goals.
All entrants must ensure they are medically fit enough to complete the event unaided and it is their responsibility to take their course at their own risk.  Organisers will not be liable in the event of an injury.  Medical cover will be available in the event of an emergency.

Participants must be 18 years or over on race day

Start:  11am, Saturday 25 June 2016
