BORN2RUN Events are delighted to have been asked to organise the 2017 Cultra Charity Challenge in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. Macmillan Cancer Support is a wonderful charity providing information, practical advice and support for people who have been affected by Cancer. The race is hosted by The Ulster Folk and Transport Museum, one of Northern Ireland’s foremost visitor attractions where you can step back in time and uncover a way of life from 100 years ago. Discover cottages, farms, schools and shops as you run through the beautiful parkland of the Folk Museum. BORN2RUN Events are providing a management service to the event hosts for which we will receive a nominal fee. All profits from the race will go directly to Macmillan Cancer Support. There will be a new route for the 2017 Cultra Charity Challenge 10K & 5K which will suit runners of all abilities.

The 5K Cultra Charity Challenge is one loop of the 10K minus a small section near the car park which the 10K takes in the first time around.
