I was along the coast a wee while ago & it is very, very windy!!  Even during the worst of any snow falls around these parts, it rarely lies on the Coast Road.  The main prolem will definitely be the wind & cold.  It is coming straight off the sea so hitting you side on.  It will be an interesting experience I think!!

Thanks Heather.

5 miles with the beginners used it to try and workout what to wear on Saturday.

I wonder how the pacers will manage their balloons in the wind? They might take off...

Ricky, and we've been practising sooo hard !

When you said " I wonder how the pacers will manage their balloons" were you referring to us ?

Gregory , told you there would be running today

I think we may all bow to Heathers insider knowledge , the wind will be some craic , getting there safely is now my only concern ! But that's just because I'm a big Jessie

Ah, that snow !!
22/03/2013 at 07:50

Great stuff getting that update from Larne AC and thanks for that Heather.

Now this wind .....

22/03/2013 at 09:24

Thanks for the update Heather. The wind and wind chill factor will be the main problems. Getting to Larne safely may also be difficult for some.

Down here on the sunny North Coast there is not snow but it's very windy.

Thanks Heather . Snow thick on the ground in Belfast , travel might be tricky enough though theres good roads down to Larne , have to be at Aldegrove for 7:00am for my sons school trip so I will probably just head down very early

Where I'm at the snow is not good. I think I will give it a miss and do queens 5k instead. Not training for a marathon so wanted to do a good time in it and don't need to do it. I'll just have to do one later in the year.

22/03/2013 at 10:44

was looking forward to larne, done it the past few years and the weather is usually great at it!  i dont see how itll go ahead though, i know today the a8 was closed so anyone coming from belfast direction would be in trouble getting there if this snow keeps up, itll be a smaller field for sure if it does go ahead!

If like me , your bored at work or snowed in ,check out the photo gallery on this site,, siberian ice marathon,2000km from Moscow , one of those real bucket list runs , the guys and girls with snow covered eyelashes will put a smile on your face if nothing else on this miserable day

Just heard that Paddy Power have this morning slashed the odds on a White Twelfth! ....


sorry I'll get my coat ...
