Description

Born To Run Tours offers guided running tours of Northern Ireland. A unique way to see the sights of Belfast and the Causeway Coast.

Born to Run Tours offers you a new and fun way to see the sights of Northern Ireland, providing guided running tours of Belfast, Derry/Londonderry and the Causeway Coast and Glens.
There are various tours available and all tours will suit runners of all abilities. There is no better way to learn all about Northern Ireland and see the many beautiful sights.
Tour East Belfast and explore C.S Lewis Square and Freedom Corner or take a run around the West of the city to see the Peace Walls and Murals. Tours also take in the Titanic Quarter, Belfast City Centre and the closer surrounding areas of Queen's University and Botanic Gardens. If you are visiting Derry/Londonderry, take a running tour around the walls of this famous city.
And for those of you who might prefer an off-road run, why not book a Causeway Coastal Tour where you can visit Game of Throne filming locations and the Giant's Causeway itself. Or how about a run through the beautiful Glenariff Forest, one of the nine Glens of Antrim?
If you find that the current tours do not suit your needs, please feel free to contact Born To Run and a bespoke tour can be arranged.
All the tour details, how to book and prices can be found on their website.

  • Game of Thrones® Running Tour - Dragonstone Cliffs & Slavers Bay

    Visit Game of Thrones® filming locations on this special guided running tour.

    Visit Game of Thrones® filming location at the beautiful headland of Fair Head before dropping down into the tranquil setting of Murlough Bay. As well as seeing the locations, you will hear the stories of Grey Man's Path and history of this amazing setting on Northern Ireland's Causeway Coastal Route.

    Known as Northern Ireland’s tallest cliff face, the impressive Fair Head rises 600 feet above sea level and lies about 3 miles from the town of Ballycastle. It was therefore the perfect setting for the clifftop scenes of Dragonstone from Season 7.

    On the clifftop, Lord Varys confronts Melisandre about her reluctance to see the King in the North (Episode 3). Later on in the same episode, witness Jon Snow as he stands on the cliff edge, brooding. Tyrion approaches and after he bemoans his own ill-conceived strategising, asks what Jon needs - the dragon glass request is given.

    Murlough Bay is a hidden gem off the main Causeway Coastal Route. Once there, you will have great views of Rathlin Island off Northern Ireland’s north coast, as well as the Mull of Kintyre and the Scottish Islands which lie across the North Channel.

    The wild and windswept cliffs above Murlough Bay were used for the scenes in Season 2 Episode 4 as Renly’s Camp when Stannis Baratheon travels to meet his brother Renly and demands he join with him.

    From the high cliffs, make your way down towards the sea to visit Slavers Bay, where Tyrion Lannister and Ser Jorah Mormont, having been attacked by Stone Men as they sailed on the Old Valyrian Canal and lost their boat, have made it ashore and are continuing to Meereen on foot (Season 5).

    From here make your way back to Fair Head to complete our Game of Thrones® running tour.

    This route will require trail shoes. The locations on Fair Head which were used for filming are on open land and working farmland; there are cliffs and the route is quite undulating with a steep climb at the end. But remember, the tours will be at a pace that suits you so walking parts of it is fine (that's what I do).

    This tour is independently operated by Born To Run Tours. It is not sponsored, endorsed, or affiliated with HBO or anyone associated with Game of Thrones®.

    The meeting point to start is the car park at Fair Head, off Fairhead Road via Torr Road. Parking is a £3 donation.

    This tour is approx. 12 km.

    Max group size: 6

    • £30 for 1 person
    • £55 for 2 people
    • £80 for 3 people
    • 4+ runners: An additional £20 per person

  • Game of Thrones® Running Tour - Pyke & The Stormlands

    Visit Game of Thrones® filming locations on this special guided running tour.

    This tour will start at the old ruins of Dunseverick Castle and take us along the beautiful Causeway Coastal Path. Visit Dunseverick Harbour, pass through Portbradden and run along White Park Bay beach before making your way towards the Game of Thrones® filming locations of Ballintoy and Larrybane.

    Ballintoy Harbour has become synonymous with Pyke and the Iron Islands. With a stop here you will get a chance to imagine you are in Lordsport Harbour waiting for Theon Greyjoy as he sails to Pyke with the aim of seeking an alliance between the Greyjoys and Robb Stark (Season 2).

    You can also visit Ballintoy Beach, which was used for the funeral scene of Balon Greyjoy and the rebirth of his brother Euron (both Season 6).

    Larrybane was the filming location used for Renly Baratheon's camp in The Stormlands (Season 2).

    You can also stand on the exact spot of the Kingsmoot on the Iron Islands (Season 6). Feel like Yara or Theon as they stake Yara's claim for the throne. Or join the gathering like Euron, to make his claim.

    This route may require trail shoes depending on the weather but can be completed in normal trainers with care. The route is quite undulating with a steep climb at the end. It also involves climbing over rocks at each end of White Park Bay beach. But remember, the tours will be at a pace that suits you so walking parts of it is fine (that's what I do).

    This tour is independently operated by Born To Run Tours. It is not sponsored, endorsed, or affiliated with HBO or anyone associated with Game of Thrones®.

    The meeting point to start is the Dunseverick Castle car park on the Causeway Road.

    This tour is approximately 10km.

    Max group size: 6

    • £25 for 1 person
    • £45 for 2 people
    • £65 for 3 people
    • 4+ runners: An additional £15 per person
  • Belfast Beer and Pizza Running Tour

    The 5km tour of Belfast will start and finish at the Sunflower Public House on the corner of Kent Street and Union Street, Belfast.

    And after a social, cultural and sightseeing tour, finish off with a drink of your choice from a range of craft beers and a freshly prepared wood-fired pizza by Boxing Hare Wood Fired Pizzeria, while being entertained by some live music.

    The running tour will take in Belfast City Centre, the Cathedral Quarter and part of the Lagan Towpath. There will be lots of stops for information and photo opportunities. Remember, tours are run at a pace to suit the group.

    Once back at the Sunflower Pub, you will put in your order for a pizza. And while waiting on it to be ready, you get to choose a beer from the menu of great beers on offer and listen to some relaxing tunes.

    Sunflower is a simple corner pub, it is free of gimmicks or themes, and it is one of the few remaining. It is instantly recognisable by the security cage on its front door, a relic from 1980s Belfast. While the cage is no longer needed for security reasons it has been kept and preserved as part of the city’s social history.

    • £26 for 1 person  
    • £45 for 2 people  
    • Prices include the tour, beer (a half-pint) or soft drink each and a pizza to share (up to three toppings) 

    Maximum group size is 6 people (all runners must be over 18 years of age).

    Tours will operate on a Thursday and start at 4.30pm or 6.30pm and must be booked in advance. Book on Born to Run Tours website.
