THE final race in Born2Run's 2018-19 'Run Forest Run' series takes place in the beautifully scenic Castlewellan Forest Park on Saturday, February 23.

Seven races have already been run in the hugely popular and successful series and if you've missed those, there's still a chance to sneak in a 10k or 5k, as online entry will remain open until Wednesday, February 20 at 11pm.

It's shaping up to be a fantastic day out. All finishers will receive a beautiful medal and for those who'll be completing their eighth race Born2Run will be presenting bonus gold medals at the finish line.

Highly coveted Forest Finisher T-shirts will also be presented to those runners who will have completed six of the eight races in the series.

To celebrate the end of the series there will be Forest Finale post-race refreshments, prize-giving and category award presentations after the race on Saturday in the registration room upstairs.

Prizes will be awarded for the winners of the Castlewellan race plus the overall series winners and age categories for both the 5K and 10K.

The 10K age category prizes will be sponsored by Commercial Spare Parts, while Price Waterhouse Coopers are sponsoring the 5K age category prizes. Both distances have a junior category prize also.

In addition, there will be awards for 'most inspiring runner', 'face of the series' and volunteer of the series.
