Larne Half Marathon

Posted on Posted in News

43 North Down runners enjoyed the Larne sunshine and the Ballygally coastline on Saturday, with plenty pb’s into the bargain.


Michael Boyd was first man home with a time of 1:22:48 closely followed by Chris Speers clocking 1:23:01. Eamonn O’Reilly was next in 1:28:26 before Sean Nickell completed in 1:29:17, covering a distance better suited to his marathon efforts after his Queens 5k run on Wednesday.


Alan Massey narrowly missed breaking the 90 minute barrier as he crossed the line in 1:30:06 as did Philip Mulligan on 1:30:08. Stephen Wise ran well to register 1:31:32, Steven Donegan finished with 1:33:50 and Douglas Gordon, 1:36:45.


Fiona McQuillan was our first woman home in 1:37:36 and just over a minute later Jennifer McVeigh joined her on 1:38:43. Christopher Ballentine finished with 1:38:35 and Robert Eadie crossed the line in 1:41:22, Mitchell Brown 1:42:24 and Claire Scott 1:42:53. Helen Byers fell out with her Garmin pace setter when she recorded 1:44:00 and then John McGarvey was thoroughly satisfied with his 1:44:27 timing after his recent period of good quality training.
