U&R quoted £20, which is a bit steep for 5 minutes work.
podium4sport are almost in an industrial estate between cregagh and castlereagh road. They should also do it but I'm not sure if they charge or what they charge. There are some of their guys, one in particular, very knowledgable too.
Have a look online / contact them.
Just over 4 miles on Thursday evening ans then 8.4 miles yesterday. I felt a lot better after doing it I'm hoping that me over the manflu. Looking now to build on this and get a bit of speed into the legs and run the Larne Half for the first time since 2002. I have a good squad of beginners and more experienced runners training for this Heather. For some it will be their first half. Looking forward to a good day out in Larne.
Roe Valley Country Park Trail run coming up on the 9 Feb. 8K race unfortunately one side of the park is still closed off after a landslide this time last year. I have made one small change to the course from last year. Entry forms can be downloaded from the Springwell site.
Neilem most places charge for this if you don't buy a pair of shoes.

CNR, had a look at new site area ,very good, excellent first write up, very encouraging that it came from someone who was having a bit of fun and dying on a hilly run,been there !
Cheers Martin, hopefully a few more different experiences will come up on it! Its a great part of the world to run, although that's from someone who has only ever driven round it!!
Ahhhh ok - that explains it... cheers HMMThat was the tough mid section ...so less climbing now theoretically should produce a faster course?
yes as HMM says the middle loop is shorter with it cutting up Weyburn Road instead of going up the whole length of Croft Road. Weyburn is a wee toughie, definitely don't push it too much at this stage, then take advantage of a good downhill once you get to the top!!
Sounds good - I remember the downhill section back down to the coast - very scenic & very welcome at that point from memory! Ran my 1.41 PB here in '06 ... I'll be happy with sub 1.50 this time round though!
Martin - Larne comes at a perfect time if you are training for Belfast ..... it's about 5 weeks beforehand so means you can "have a good go" @ Larne with plenty of recovery time during your taper month that follows.Good indicator of your likely pace/time in Belfast too.... double it and and 20/30 mins.
Good on ya - 2 marathons - 5 weeks apart! Fair play...Is entry now full for Walled City? Am I right there was only a limited entry?Larne's my favorite half - def worth trying to get the time off to do it. (Heather where's my commission )
Extra sandwiches for you Ricky!!
Yes Martin I think you are right - many delay entering in case they get injured/training doesn't go well - I know I do! Dublin use the old trick of increasing the entry fee a few times as the the date approaches thus encouraging people to commit earlier at the lower entry fee.Heather you're gonna be busy makin all these extra sandwiches - hope you've time to run
OK - where's this snow? Just back in from a 6 miler and no sign - quite mild in fact @ +5deg .... according to the forecasts it will be a whiteout in the morning with rushhour chaos?!
I'm going to do Larne and looking forward to it, but will not be signing up just yet - why? because I signed up for Dervock last year and got injured and had to watch from the sidelines - I do not want to do that again - I'm a Ballymena man - don't want to loose my fee! It will be my first 1/2.
I was out running yesterday afternoon and it wasn't that mild I thought, cold stiff wind blowing, managed to do over 14 miles which is the farthest I've run - don't intend going above the 14.1 more than once between now and 23rd March.
