Run Forest Run - Minnowburn

Minnowburn 10K is the first race in this year’s Belfast Telegraph Run Forest Run Series organised by Born2Run Events.

This race starts and finishes on the fantastic state-of-the art Mary Peters Track, home of Northern Ireland Athletics.

This race really has it all, track, forest trail, country road, taking you through National Trust property at Minnowburn and back along the banks of the Lagan.

Close to the city yet in the heart of the countryside – that’s the paradox of Minnowburn which has changed little over the years and still holds a rural charm.
