Jeff Blair, Owner of Alpha Physio:
"Larne Athletic Club has been totally focused on making the Larne Half Marathon one of the elite races of the Northern Ireland running calendar and this year is the largest number of runners to ever enter so Alpha Physio is really excited to work with Larne Athletic Club to offer competitors first class physiotherapy and massage on the day."
Runners can be confident of a first class service, as Alpha Physio has a strong heritage in sports injury prevention and recovery. Jeff (owner) and Stuart (Senior Physio) of Alpha Physio, have personally worked with professional and elite amateur athletes and have gained a comprehensive expertise in the treatment of all conditions and their ability to accurately diagnose injuries and provide hands-on treatment have assisted them in establishing an unparalleled reputation in patient care. On the day Jeff and Stuart will lead a team of physiotherapists offering a premier service to all runners.

The committee of Larne AC recognise that the decision to close entries for the Larne Half Marathon on 1st March 2016 disappointed many athletes. This was done in response to the unprecedented number of entries and the subsequent need to consider health and safety, facilities and so on.
These issues have been reviewed and it has been determined that 1900 athletes can be accommodated.
Entries will reopen at 8pm on Monday 7th March and close when the 1900th athlete has registered.
Please note that following this no further entries can be accepted and that no athlete will be able to register on race day.
