We speak to some of the women taking part in this year's Belfast Telegraph 10k Runher event and find out what they thought of it.

>>Full Results  - Titanic Quarter Runher Oct 2014<

Claire Minnis from Holywood

"It's our third Runher event. I am running with my daughter Joanna and my friends. I like the informality – there are no expectations on those who want to come for fun, just to finish is the main thing. The coastal route was a killer so this flat course is great."

Sarah Dorman from Belfast

"I am a personal trainer at David Lloyd in Dundonald so would bring 20 to 25 clients down to the event. It is a great event to work towards. I get clients involved in the 'couch to 10k' and they go on to do marathons and ironman events. Runher is a good event because you have all ranges of fitness levels, shapes and sizes. I know a lot of females wouldn't feel comfortable taking part in a mixed event."

Oonagh Parish from Whitehead

"Runher is something to aim towards. It keeps you running between the months. There is a great atmosphere and I usually record a better time at Runher, which I can't work out. I enjoy the Runher atmosphere and distance."

"This is my first 10K event. I took up running five weeks ago. I signed up to do the 'couch to 5K' and thought this would be fun. I was expecting to see more pink with it being women only!"

Emma Hughes from Belfast

"I took up running in July because I turned 30. Apparently your metabolism slows down when you hit 30 so I thought I have to do some running. This is my first 10k after doing two 5ks over the last month. Titanic is a good place to have it. You are not squished and there are not many cars about. Running is good but hard, it's rewarding. I feel I have more energy now."

Suzanne Gartland from Belfast

"It's my first Runher for Crohn's and Colitis NI. I have Crohn's disease. Ten of us have raised more than £1,100. The local branch of the charity is new so Runher is great to raise awareness. Exercise is good for Crohn's, which affects lots of young people."
