our special branch
Well - as most have got there threads out and are filling up, I have chose to introduce this thread myself
In The Great Britain Coastal Relay we want Barry The Baton to do the NI coast . We already ghave somebody to bring him over and place him in your capable custody.
If you have no idea what I am on about here is the main thread for the event.
The baton will get into Belfast or Larne and will need to be transported to either Muff (Don't Laugh) near Derry/Londonderry (or Rio de Janeiro as Mr Izzard renamed it) or to Warrenpoint near Newry.
That's if you want to do just the Coast (probably about 250miles) - the other option is to do a lap of Northern Ireland in which case Belfast or Larne would be the start and finish point - totalling about 450miles.
best get from Belfast to L/derry(the whole NI coast I think) rather than a strenuous 450. 250 divided by 20 is not so bad. Please tell other NI runners. I really want Barry to go round the coast there. I spent 3 years studying in Coleraine and loved it
two names from original list
Very tempted - I'll be running a couple of marathons and a few half marathons next year - as long as it doesn't clash too badly with those.
I do like the thought of running up the coast road from Larne to.......???
doubt if it will Mark. It can be done when there is space for people. When you get others on bboard and discuss, you will find it is doable I reckon
why not from Larne. I think baton will have to go to Belfast first and work up and across. Not sure where NI coast starts exactly-that is why it has got to be sorted out locally and not here in England.
Might as well have a crack at it.
The border starts at Newry, so it should be from Newry to Derry (hey!).
Count me in, live in whitehead not far from larne and love running the coast road
I guess you guys will get more help and sift and sort routes etc out.
bit bare this thread in spite of initial interest shown-confused
may have to unfortunately. Made other hol plans or I certainly would go back to NI again. It is where I did my degree. Love the place.
