There is a nominal fee (minimum £2) to take part with all money raised going to NHS Charities Together, but the Town & Village Management team has made it free for the first 1000 participants.

Encouraging families to participate, the Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council Alderman Mark Fielding said: “I’m delighted to see that Coleraine is taking part in this UK-wide initiative to draw people back to the town centre.

“The pedestrianised shopping area provides the ideal space for an activity like this, and the outdoor trail is a great way to find out more about the town’s retail offering and mix of independent businesses and well-known names. It’s crucial that we support our local towns and villages as they re-open again and I hope lots of families choose to visit Coleraine and enjoy everything the town has to offer while continuing to be mindful about ongoing health guidelines.”

Coleraine’s Monster Hero Safari will begin on Friday 31st July and run until Friday 4th September.
