BORN2RUN Events are delighted to launch the award-winning RUN FOREST RUN Series of 10K & 5K races.

These races will be held in 6 beautiful forests namely Minnowburn, Loughgall Country Park, Tollymore Forest Park, Gosford Forest Park, Antrim Castle Gardens and Castlewellan Forest Park.

The series kicks off on November 6th with the Minnowburn race near Belfast. This race starts and finishes on the fantastic state-of-the art Mary Peters Track, home of Northern Ireland Athletics. The route covers, track, forest trail, country road, taking you through National Trust property at Minnowburn and back along the banks of the Lagan.

This is a great opportunity for fun runners as well as the more experienced to run on the track normally reserved for Northern Ireland’s more elite athletes.

The RUN FOREST RUN Series is now well established as a favourite with runners and has been recognised by runners who voted it as the best race series in the UK & Ireland at the 2019 and 2020 Running Awards in London.

Runners who complete 5 of the 6 races will pick up a special edition Forest Finisher t-shirt and there are bespoke medals for each of the different races as well as a special gold medal for those who do all 6.

There is a FREE pair of Steigen running socks (rrp £13) for those runners who enter all 6 races up front.

BORN2RUN have teamed up with Suicide prevention charity PIPS as charity partners  for the series. PIPS Charity provides support to individuals who are considering, or who have at some point considered, ending their own lives. PIPS also provide support to those families & friends who have been touched by suicide.
