Over 1000 runners took part in this hugely popular race, now in its 13th year. This course took the runners around the Queen’s Island area, starting and finishing close to the icon Titanic building.

The race was part of the Inter-Area Road Race Series for the first time, which involves teams from North of England, South of England, Midlands, Scotland, Wales and the UK Armed Forces competing across a variety of road race events across the UK. The TQ10k is the first in the series for this year, which will be a two-way match between NI & Ulster and the North of England. Two North Belfast Harriers made it to the Men’s team: NI & Ulster Senior Cross Country Champion, Mark McKinstry and Conan McCaughey.
