The redesigned P&O Ferries Antrim Coast Half Marathon (formerly Larne Half Marathon) course promises to be one of the flattest and fastest in the UK & Ireland, taking in many prominent landmarks & stunning scenery along the route.
In 2020 Larne AC are delighted to announce the addition of one of the finest International fields ever assembled on these shores.

Starting at the Chaine Memorial tower built in 1888, the course sweeps through Larne town before moving onto the iconic Antrim Coast Road. The coasts stunning landscape was recognised by the makers of HBO’s Game of Thrones, who used the area extensively as one of their filming locations.
Turning homeward at Ballygally Castle the course offers one of the fastest finishes to any road race.
In addition to the confirmed World Class field & fast course the total prize fund has quadrupled with over £10k prize money on offer, with the local prize fund having doubled from last year.

P&O Antrim Coast Half Marathon 2020 Coronavirus Update
The 2020 P&O Antrim Coast Half Marathon.
As you know, the COVID – 19 outbreak means serious disruption across every part of our lives. Currently the rescheduled date for the 2020 P&O Antrim Coast Half Marathon is Saturday 12th September.
Back when we announced this postponement on Saturday 14th March, we were confident that we would be able to stage the first P&O Antrim Coast
Half Marathon on our new date. However, due to the rapidly changing developments on a daily basis we cannot be certain if the event will go ahead
on this date.
We are monitoring coronavirus developments very closely, in line with advice by the UK Government and World Health Organisation.
On behalf of the Race Committee we would like to thank you, the runners, charities, sponsors and local communities for your continued understanding and we will next update you on latest developments on Sunday 21 June.
Best wishes from the P& O Antrim Coast Half Marathon committee.
