2018 Race Report
Entries for the 8thannual Wilne 10k which took place on Sunday 2nd September sold out again in record time.
The weather on race morning provided hot and sunny running conditions. The atmosphere was superb as usual and the support of volunteers and spectators also gave our runners additional motivation some of whom were running their first 10k race. We were delighted to host the Derbyshire Athletics 10k Championships again this year.
This year’s race, with a field of 866 runners, took the scenic, flat and fast route around the Church Wilne between the picturesque villages of Draycott and Sawley in Derby.
First 10km runner over the line this year was Daniel Kestrel of Rotherham Harriers in 31:53, second was Thomas Beasley of Birchfield Harriers in 32:06 and third was Karl Welborn of Tipton Harriers in 35:55.
The first female to cross the finish line was Hayley Munn of Northampton Road Runners in 35:55. Second was Julie Brisco of Wakefield District H & AC in 36:00 and in third place was Ellie Stevens of Birchfield Harriers in 36:48
The course record of 29.51 held by 2015’s winner, Ryan Mcleod of Tipton Harriers, remains unbroken for a third year year.
The existing female course record of 33.02 held by Jessica Coulson of Stockport Harriers and AC set in 2014 remains unchanged.
The Race Village in Brookfields Farm field featured pre and post-race massage from Andra Health, Derby Runner retail stand, Sam’s Jogle 2019fundraising stall and refreshments provided by The Wolf Hut.
A special thank you to Brookfield Farm, all of our sponsors and our fantastic, hard-working volunteers without whom there would be no event.
