THE annual Causeway Coast Challenge Walk for 2019 is set to run again this year this Sunday, May 5.

This event, run by local club Bannside Ramblers, is now in its 41st year of operation and continues to attract walkers from all over Ireland and further afield.

As a result of its success the event was recently awarded the prestigious title of Best Challenge Walk 2016 by the tourism body WALKNI.

This challenging walk commences at Portballintrae, Co. Antrim and follows the spectacular coastal cliff top path via the famous Giant's Causeway to eventually reach Port Bradden where participants turn and retrace their steps. This brings the total distance of the challenge walk to over 30KM of stunning views and scenery.
