Belfast Running Club (BRC) was set up in December 2013, following on from the first Jog Belfast SOUTH programme. In less than a year it attracted over 120 members from all over Belfast. Based in and around Ormeau Park it accommodates all runners from parkrunners and social runners to those looking something a little further/faster.
