About the Event

It’s time to get absolutely boggin’ once again as The Bog Run makes its muddy return to Castlewellan Forest Park on Sunday 8th October! This 5K run promises to be one of the boggiest around.

We don’t care if you can’t remember the last time you saw a gym – The Bog Run is a run for fun; a great sense of humour, and determination to get stuck in is all we ask for!

Best of all, by taking part, you are making a difference to the lives of local children affected by cancer.

We've opened up our entry requirements and are delighted to welcome participants from age 12+ this year. Why not rope in the whole family for what promises to an amazing day out together?

Everyone who takes part in The Bog Run, will be awarded a lovely shiny Bog Run medal at the end to say thanks for taking part. You'll also get a goody bag with drink and snack when you cross the finish line!

By taking part in the Bog Run, you'll be making a difference to children whose lives have been impacted by a cancer diagnosis. You'll enable our team of Specialists to provide a range of practical, emotional and financial support, as well as free therapeutic short breaks to families affected by cancer.

What to Bring

We would suggest really old clothes and shoes that you’re not worried about getting boggin’ or throwing out after

because we can guarantee you one thing….you probably won’t want to wear them again!

Think about clothes that won’t freeze you to the bone if you get wet – layering up might be a good idea! Also, we do not have the facility to store valuables so please leave them behind or with friends or family. There will be a designated area to leave your changing stuff while you run.

Bring bin bags! Lots of them!! Unless you want your car to look like it did the Bog Run as well!
