Be a Giant for Kids with Cancer


Join Cancer Fund for Children for our second annual Giant Coastal Challenge. Discover the Causeway coastline and all its wild and wonderful scenery from a completely new perspective – by walking it.

We promise world class scenery on this 10 mile Atlantic adventure between two of our most iconic landmarks, the Giants Causeway and Carrick-a-Rede. Whilst we can’t promise the weather, what we can promise is a well-deserved sense of achievement when you finish, rain or shine!

Not only will you be challenging yourself, but you will be making a GIANT difference to local children, young people and families living with cancer.


The Route


Starting from the Giant’s Causeway, the walk will follow along the Ulster Way taking us along cliff paths which will offer us a view showcasing the full scale of its beauty and geological uniqueness.

We continue on to the ruins of Dunseverick Castle, before reaching Dunseverick Harbour, our half way point, where we will stop for some lunch and to use the facilities.

After a quick 20 minute refuel, we begin the 2nd half of our journey towards the world famous Carrick-a-Rede. To get there we will pass hike through fields, over styles and through a small cave, enjoying the breath-taking scenery and saying hi to the occasional sheep!

After passing through Portbradden, we arrive at the stunning White Park Bay. A leisurely walk down the beach will bring us to the picturesque Ballintoy Harbour, made famous by the hit HBO show Game of Thrones.

Finally, we reach our finish point – Carrick-A-Rede. Pats on the back all round – you did it!


Taking Part


The Giant Coastal Challenge is approximately 10 miles in length and is designated a challenging walk. Hiking boots are necessary.We ask that each participant pays a registration fee of £20pp and aims to raise a target sponsorship amount of £80 each.

Participants must be 14 years + and anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Dogs are not permitted and the route is not suitable for buggies / wheelchairs.

Due to restrictions on parking at both the Giant’s Causeway and Carrick-a-Rede, all participants MUST park their vehicles and register for the event at Dunluce School in Bushmills. Coaches will then take all event participants to start the walk at the Giant’s Causeway. On completion of the walk at Carrick-a-Rede, shuttle buses will run every 30mins to take people back to their vehicles.
