NI based Born2run club nominated for prestigious UK award

By Allan Preston

The Belfast Telegraph Run Forest Run series has been nominated for a prestigious national award, with the Dublin Marathon as the only other nominee from across Ireland.

Local club 'Born2run' organises the eight race meetings which take place across some of Northern Ireland's most spectacular forest locations, including Tollymore Forest park in Newcastle, Gosford Forest Park in Markethill and Kilbroney Forest Park in Rostrevor, from October to February.

For the current series runners are given the choice of 10km races as well as newly added 5km race routes.

The Running Awards will announce the national winners on April 20 in London this year, taking place at Indigo at the 02.
