We have teamed up with Charity Challenge to offer you this one day challenge which will have you trekking a marathon distance along the Giant’s Causeway Coastal Route. Whilst the distance alone would make this a challenge, the nature of the undulating terrain will have you ascending over 1000m along the dramatic coastline of this UNESCO World Heritage site.
