More than 500 runners have completed the Tollymore 10K, the fourth race in this year’s Belfast Telegraph Run Forest Run Series organised by Born2Run Events.

The race route took in panoramic views of the Mourne Mountains and followed the forest path alongside the Shimna River in a gradual ascent past the Hermitage and through the beautiful forest where scenes from Game of Thrones were filmed.

The winner was William McKee in a time of 35m 19s, while Laura Graham was the first female to cross the line in 39:01.

Both are Born2Run veterans — and winners.

William and Laura have won two other Born2Run Events recently — the Loughgall 10k earlier this month and the Gosford 10K.
