Gemma McDonald will start as red-hot favourite in the ladies.

The Springwell girl has been in great form, with a string of medals.

Registration is from 10.30 at Tannaghmore Primary School, with the action starting at 12 noon alongside a fun run and walk.

East Coast AC are promoting the Larne 10K.

Mark McKinstry from North Belfast will be aiming to follow up his Laganside victory with another success.

Stephen O’Gorman from Dromore can go close while North can also call upon John Black, Conor Curran, Kent Swann and Thomas Simmons.

Laura Graham from Mourne Runners - also a Laganside winner - is practically unbeatable this season and should score again ahead of Rebecca Henderson, Cathy McCourt, Amy Bulman and Natalie Hall.

The race starts at 11 o’clock. There is also a Junior 800 and a Family Fun Run.
