Andy Guy led East Coast Athletic Club’s contingent home at East Antrim Harriers’ Forest Race in Woodburn Forest in midweek.

Guy, a regular at the series over the years, continued his good form to lead the club’s runners home in 14:29 (4th place).
Vice-Chairman Greg Lavery crossed the line a mere three seconds later in 14:32 (fifth place), before the ever impressive Daniel Girvin recorded 14:42 to take sixth spot. James Robinson (17th, 15:49), Naoise McLoughlin (19th, 15:55) and Allan McCullough (21st, 16:04) all reached the finish line in quick succession, while Chris Davis once again impressed with a 16:36 (26th place) finish.
Allyson O’Toole secured second place in the ladies’ race in 17:06. Lee Stirling continued his good form of late, crossing the line next and taking 46th place in 18:46. Paul Clements (19:31, 55th), Lesley Robinson (20:01, 13th lady), Sandy Plumb (20:12, 72nd), Catherine Maxwell (20:28, 16th lady), Gillian Leetch-Armstrong (20:36, 17th lady), Carol Clarke (21:08, 19th lady), Rowena Davis (22:05, 26th lady), and Nicky Marcus (23:22, 32nd lady) all followed in quick succession.
