Western Power Distribution is the headline sponsor of the Wilne 10k for the fourth year.
Michael Clarke, Corporate Communications Officer, said “After months of hard work, it’s nearly here! The seventh Wilne 10K happens on Sunday 3rd September and Western Power Distribution are delighted to be headline sponsors once again. The number of entries this year has been phenomenal and places seem to sell out earlier every year. It is testament to the popularity of the race that so many people, whether they be elite runners or fun runners, want to take part. Let’s hope that the weather is on our side and everyone can get round in their target times and more importantly, enjoy the day.
All that’s left to say is good luck to all of the runners on the day and many thanks to all of the volunteers and organisers for all of their efforts in making this race happen – it wouldn’t happen without them.”
