Antrim Castle 10K + 5K
On Saturday 2nd February 15 members of Larne AC joined over 900 runners at Antrim Castle Garden for the 7th race in the Belfast Telegraph Run Forest Run Series. Bracing -3oC temperature to run through 400 year old gardens with frozen ponds and spring buds starting to bloom through the frozen ground a very picturesque sight with the 10K route also taking in the ruins of Shanes Castle (another Game of Thrones venue) where runners will enjoy some fantastic views of Lough Neagh and then returning through the immaculately kept gardens and wood at Castle Gardens.
With 6 club runners completing the 5k, Pearl Henry was first home for the club in 30:23, next was Linzi Conway in 33:51 and Jennifer Lloyd in 39:00, followed by Gillian Craig, Kerrianne Craig and Catherine Todd finishing in 55:48.
