The Causeway Crossing 2014

Lost Worlds Trail Series

2014 LOST WORLDS CAUSEWAY CROSSING - SATURDAY, 3 May 2014

Join us for the Lost Worlds Causeway Crossing – three unique events through a unique landscape – the Giants Causeway Coastline and the Moyle Way. The format of the Lost Worlds series welcomes individuals to take part in a 25k, 50k or 100k event.

The 2014 Lost Worlds Causeway Crossing will take place on Saturday 3 May 2014 with three fantastic events – the Lost Worlds 100k, the Lost Worlds 50k and the Lost Worlds 25k.  

All Lost Worlds Causeway Crossing events will be fully waymarked and will follow the paths, tracks, beaches and coastline of the Moyle Way and Causeway Coast Way - probably one of the most spectacular coastlines in the whole world. The entire route of the 50k and 25k events pass through magnificent coastline scenery with fine views of wide bays, sandy beaches, dramatic cliffs and offshore rocks, all of which characterise the Giants Causeway Causeway Coast, making its beauty and uniqueness world famous. All events will run through the world famous Giants Causeway with the 100k event passing through this famous landmark twice.The 100k route also follows the route of the Moyle Way, along tracks and trails where few feet ever venture and along majestic streams and pathways which will test the fittest participant over the first 50k. 


There will be a high level of support and feed stations en route. Participants in all events will use a timing system for this event and split times and finish times will be available for all participants after crossing the finish line of the event.
