Antrim Castle Gardens hosted the seventh race in the Belfast Telegraph Run Forest Run Series, organised by Born2Run Events.

The penultimate race in the series began in the castle's grounds then headed out to the Randalstown Road and then on to Shane's Castle grounds.

The route took competitors through the ruins of Shane's Castle, where runners enjoyed fantastic views of Lough Neagh, before returning to the immaculately kept gardens and wood at Antrim Castle Gardens.

The winner was Mark McKinstry in a time of 31 minutes and 47 seconds.
