Event Information

BORN2RUN Events are delighted to have selected Alzheimer’s Research UK as our chosen charity for the 2017/2018 Belfast Telegraph RUN FOREST RUN Series.  We met the ARUK Team when we attended The Running Awards earlier this year in London and we were really impressed with the work that they’re doing to try to create a world where people are free from the fear and heatrbreak of dementia.  For every £1 donated to ARUK 84p goes directly into research and 16p funds essential running costs so you know exactly where your fundraising is going when you support ARUK.
