For teams traveling from outside Northern Ireland  we provide a free minibus service to/from the event centre. Seats can be booked on a first come first served basis. Coronavirus restrictions mean we can only offer a reduced number of seats this year. Passengers will be required to wear face coverings.

A minibus leaves the Belfast Europa bus station, (front entrance) at approx. 20:30 on Friday evening to take people via Newcastle and anywhere near to the Event Centre. Camping will be available at the Event Centre. 

The bus returns to Belfast (Europa) on Sunday afternoon leaving the event centre at approximately 15.30. Any competitor wishing to avail of any part of this service should fill out the request form below.

Translink operate several bus services from Belfast and other towns to/from Newcastle on Friday evening and Sunday afternoon. See their website for details.

    Parking at the Event Centre will be in an open field and is free. For the Score Class teams on Saturday, a shuttle bus will return them from their finish at the campsite to the Event Centre from 15:30 onwards.

    The parking field is not secured and competitors use it at their own risk. Neither the Mourne Mountain Marathon nor the event centre’s owners accept any liability for competitors vehicles or their contents.
