Larne Athletic Club is Larne’s leading athletics club and reaches a milestone 25th anniversary in 2013.
We are a friendly club and welcome all level of abilities of like minded people who may take their running seriously (but not that seriously!) or may just want to keep a bit fitter.
We are proud that runners all over the world come to compete in our Larne Half Marathon event each March and are pleased to be able to donate a proportion of the proceeds to local charities. The 2014 Half Marathon will take place on Saturday 22nd March, enter now http://larnehalfmarathon.webs.com/.
Most of all though we enjoy running! Follow us on Twitter or join our Facebook group.

The LAC Committee would like to thank all participants for coming along to support our event. We would also like to thank our many and wonderful volunteers without whose help running this event would simply not be possible.
Well done everybody and look forward to seeing you all back again next year, Thanks!
