BORN2RUN Events are delighted to have been asked to organise the 2018 Cultra Charity Challenge in aid of the Children’s Heartbeat Trust. The Children’s Heartbeat Trust has been working since 1984 in Northern Ireland to provide practical, emotional and financial support to children and young people living with heart disease and their families. 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. There will be a 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.
