In short: The Antrim coast - conditions might be tough, but made up for by the scenery In full: This race could easily rate wildly differently every year, entirely due to the conditions. This year there was a fierce northerly wind, making the first 5 miles running up the coast road very tough. Smart runners forgot about their target pace and got tucked in to a big group. There's then a 3 mile sections with a few climbs to form a short loop around the villages of Ballygally and Cairncastle, before coming home on the cost road again - this time it was downwind.
Well organised, plenty of marshalls (although that didn't stop a number of drivers determined to display their impatience and idiocy). Date of review: April 4, 2008
In short: Sea breezes provide a fun new type of resistence training! In full: A nice, friendly and well organised race. The stiff sea breeze added an extra dimension to the challenge, but the stunning Antrim coast road more than made up for that. Slightly unusual to get the t-shirt and banana before the run, but very nice and appreciated all the same. Date of review: April 3, 2008
