The exhilarating RedBull Foxhunt returns this October and for those daredevils wishing to put their mountain bike skills to the ultimate test, registration opens later this month.

In its fourth year, the event hailed as one of Ireland’s most exhilarating downhill mountain biking events takes place on the hills of Co Down between October 8 and 9.


A challenging course, combining sections of existing downhill track with additional mountain and multi-terrain sections, Red Bull Foxhunt will begin atop Slieve Martin before descending through sections of trail, moorland and forest to the sprint finish in the grounds of Rostrevor’s Kilbroney Park. 

The mountain biking event will feature over 400 bikers who will all try and beat the fox in a hunt with a difference.

From decorated pros to weekend warriors, the pack will tear down the three and a half miles of unforgiving downhill course encompassing wind bleached moorland, mud-spattered forests and hair-raising sprints, each adrenaline pumped biker tirelessly battling to cross the finish line before the advancing fox.

Registration opens for Red Bull Foxhunt on Tuesday 23rd August at 11am
