Glenariff Mountain Race

On Saturday 10th March two Larne Athletic Club runners took part in the Glenariff Mountain Race, competing over a six-mile course with a 370 meter climb packed into the third mile and a long 2-mile run home alongside the Glenariff River. Conditions for running were as cold, mucky and wet as anyone could remember over the course, with rain throughout and the summit in fog.
Both ran well, Bryan Magee finishing 42nd in a time of 57:01 and Andy Gregg finishing 48th in 59:40. The race was the first in this year’s NIMRA Championship and attracted a record 132 participants.
