The Bog Run Is Back!CFC Bog Run Castlewellan 01


Now in its third year, we’re delighted to offer you the chance to get knee deep in bog once again, by taking part in the boggiest 5K run around! It’s a run for fun and not to be taken too seriously (because it’s hard to look good covered in mud and picking twigs out of your hair) and best of all, by taking part, you are making a difference to the lives of local children affected by cancer.


A Bog Full Of Laughs


If you’ve always wanted to take part in a Tough Mudder style challenge but feared it wasn’t quite for you…then challenge yourself with the Bog Run! We don’t care if you can’t remember the last time you saw a gym – a great sense of humour is all we ask for!


What’s New This Year


  • This year we want even more of you to take part so rope in your friends, family, colleagues and…..even the kids! This year, we have opened up our entry requirements and are delighted to welcome participants from age 12+
  • Everyone who takes part in the Bog Run, will be awarded a shiny Bog Run medal at the end to say thanks for taking part! Each participant will also get a goody bag with drink and snack on completion of the run.
  • With the changes, we are delighted that we can offer you an even better value Bog Run and have reduced how much we are asking you to pay to register and raise to take part.

So there are no excuses, get signed up and get absolutely boggin’!


Your Bog Your PaceCFC Bog Run Castlewellan 06


The Bog Run is not a race. It’s a 5km (or 10km if you fancy a second lap!) course designed to be daring but not intimidating and is open to people of all abilities. You can go at your own pace and choose between four levels:


  •  Bog Runner 10K Elite – Only for the foolhardy! This is two laps of the course.
  • Bog Runner 5K - A fast pace for those who want to challenge themselves.
  • Bog Jogger – A medium pace that will stretch the legs.
  • Bog Trotter – A slow pace for those who want to have a laugh and roll around in some mud!
