Larne Half Marathon

Run for Age NI

Fancy taking part in the Larne Half Marathon?
Why not put on one of our vests and run for Age NI!

The 2015 Larne Half Marathon will take place on Saturday 21 March at 11am (TBC). The event in 2014 attracted around 1,500 entrants. All competitors that complete the race receive a commemorative medal.

Half Marathon Course

The 13.1 mile course takes in a scenic coastal route starting at Larne Leisure Centre, Tower Road and includes the Town Centre before heading north on the scenic Coast Road. At Ballygally the course takes in Cairncastle before returning to Coast Road to return south and finishes via the beautiful promenade towards Larne Leisure Centre.

There will be pacers for 1.30, 1.45 & 2.00 hour groups. Look out for your group at the start line, they will carry different coloured balloons.


The ever popular relay event will again be included this year. The relay consists of three legs of approximately 5 miles, 3 miles and 5 miles. All relay teams will be expected to provide their own transport to and from both relay changeover points. Relay points are Dixon Hall (Drainsbay) and Cairncastle Primary School.


The walk will cover the full half marathon distance over the same course as the runners.  Please note that the walk will start at 10am. No entries for the walk will be taken after this time.


Good locations for spectating are Drainsbay Car-park, Ballygally Car-park and the Meeting House Pub in Cairncastle.

Spectators are asked to get to their spot before the race starts at 11am as most traffic will be diverted away from the route. Spectators will not be permitted to follow the race route along the Coast Road or back to the finish line.
