Benone Beach/ Magilligan
Save

Hello

Does anyone run on Benone beach and Magilligan? I ran from Castlerock to the red MoD flag and back last year. very disappointed not to be able to run the whole beach. Is anyone in the habit of ignoring the flag and jogging out and back anyway? Obviously if it's absolutely out of the question then I won't be chancing it but just thought I'd ask.

Thanks

Barry

You can run if you want but you might get a bullet up the back side if they are out on the shooting range

With the Covid issue, I believe there is little or no firing at present.

thanks folks. If only they'd publish that somewhere to let people know but all searches have proved fruitless. half the run might have to do me. or the bishop's road.

The last time I was down that way there was a lot of work being done on the Bishop Road. apart from that it is a very steep climb even by car, but the views from there are worth it.
