Belfast Telegraph Runher Titanic 2017: Everything you need to know

The Belfast Telegraph Runher Titanic 2017 will take place this weekend as ladies from all over Northern Ireland get set to take part.

Last year over 1000 ladies took on the Runher challenge, with many wearing fancy dress for the occasion.

The race started off with the landmark Titanic Belfast building forming the backdrop, as runners headed around the Titanic Quarter, taking in the sights of Harland & Wolff's Samson and Goliath cranes, before heading off to Victoria Park.

So here's everything you need to know about this year's event:
