Latest Event Details

Directions and Car parking

  • From Belfast take the M2, keep right at the fork to continue M5 and follow signs for Whiteabbey/Carrickfergus. At Rushpark Roundabout, take the 2nd exit onto A2, leading onto Shore Rd/A2. At the lights opposite Loughshore Park, turn left up the Jordanstown Road.
  • Please enter UUJ through the Jordanstown Road entrance and not the main Shore Road Entrance.
  • Follow signage to park in Car Park 2, located towards the accommodation block (if it is full or unavailable, use Car Park 1 at the rear of main building).
  • We have been informed that car parking is free at weekends.

Course Safety

  • Accommodation blocks have been in use the past few weekends for tourists and athletes, so watch out for any vehicles and pedestrians around the student village.
  • Please watch where you’re going when running around blind corners. All courses/classes overlap the same site, and runners of all ages may be approaching controls and corners from opposing directions.
  • Water – There will be no water suppled at these events so please bring your own drinks and be sure to stay well hydrated – especially if the weather is as hot as it has been for the past couple of weeks.

Toilets – The toilets in the UUJ sports centre are open for use by participants.
