Barn Runners and Barn Juniors took part in last Friday’s Active Antrim Road Race.

An officially measured five-mile route with Championship timing, the event attracted both recreational and competitive runners.

For the younger runners, a one-mile fun run took place immediately before the main race. This was a great event for running enthusiasts of all abilities and took place in the beautiful Antrim Castle Gardens with some great scenery around Rea’s Wood and Lough Shore Park.

Barn Junior Dylan O’Hagan came third in an impressive time of 7.13 while Emma Porter crossed the line in sixth place.

East Coast AC

Four East Coast AC members also travelled to the Antrim Forum. Justin Maxwell was first home for the club, taking second place in 27.08. James Robinson was the next black and yellow vest to appear, crossing the line in 31:47 (15th place). He was closely followed by Allan McCullough who covered the five miles 32.31 (21st). After a sprint finish on to the Antrim Forum track, Catherine Maxwell reached the finish line in a time of 41:53 (14th lady).

On Saturday (June 14), East Coast Cheetahs, members, friends and family took part in the Larne Alive 75th anniversary celebrations in the centre of the town.
