More than 700 runners have taken part in the Mount Stewart 10K - the sixth race in the Belfast Telegraph Run Forest Run Series organised by Born2Run Events.
William McKee from Mourne Runners took first place with a finish time of 33min 31sec, while his fellow club member Laura Graham was the fastest woman at 36min 54sec.
A new venue for this year, Mount Stewart is one of the most unique and unusual gardens in the National Trust’s ownership, enjoying the mild climate of the Ards Peninsula on the shores of Strangford Lough.
The race will started and finished in front of the impressive 16th century house and the route was a mixture of road and forest trail taking in some of the most notable highlights of this fine estate, from panoramic views of the lough, through the gardens with their Mediterranean feel and past the lake to wooded areas with a range of plants from all corners of the world.
