<p dir=ltr>Wake up 0400, leave at 0500 for a 0600 start. Early lead by Irish Jonny Steed, followed at distance by Dave James from the USA.
The rains have stopped and the big yellow ball aka the sun came out.
At 2:10 Jonny came through aid station 2 at 24km.
At 0945 the 25k and a 50k runner are enjoying breakfast at the Fullerton Arms.
In a moment Erik and I will go set up the 50k start near the ropebridge in Ballintoy.
Lots if pictures with the pro pix from Ian Coreless.
