Event description

Description

A few years back Camlough Cycling Club launched ‘The Hog Run’, a fun, quirky and challenging leisure event which takes place mid August each year raising funds for charity.

The Hog Run is now established as one of the most prestigious leisure-endurance events in the Cycling Ireland Calendar and as anyone that has previously taken part in The Hog Run will testify it is a very special day out. Normally we will attract 250-300 cyclists from all over Ireland both north and south.

The day starts for us at 6am as we set up and begin to cook our Hog Roast in preparation for the return of the finishers, believe it or not it takes over six hours to cook the hog and needs to be supervised at all times (in case it does one).

There is just one route this year of 50 miles / 80 km to keep it simple. The event starts at Carrickcruppen Clubhouse at 10.00am sharp and registration will be open at 9am where you can also grab a tea or coffee and have the craic before the off.

The Hog Run is a Cycle Sportive and as such the event is open to cyclists of all abilities from novice to advanced. We promise you will find either route to be challenging yet enjoyable. There are Hills in South Armagh and North Louth (if you haven't noticed) but we promise that haven't thrown in any last minute “Killerbeastslayermonster Hill climbs’... oh by the way there are plenty of downhills and flats as well.

Each finisher is treated to a warm welcome at the finish line plus a finishers medal and a Hot Hog Roast, followed by caramel squares and as much tea or coffee as your poor squashed and stretched bladder can handle!
