Wesham10k 2017. Saturday 25th November 2017 10.00am
All entries for the 2017 Wesham 10k have been sold. Many thanks to everyone for supporting our race this year. Race number lists will be published soon and emailed to all runners.
The Wesham 10k is one of the North West’s oldest continually running 10k road races. Held every November, the race is slightly undulating, running around the lanes of Salwick and Lea Town.
The first Wesham 10k race in 1986 was completed by 154 runners. Since then the event has grown continually and regularly attracts a good quality, large field of runners.
In 2016, 463 runners completed the 10k race. This was the first time since 2009 that the race had sold out and we were only 3 runners away from recording our highest number of finishers.
Over 100 runners scored new PBs and a further 57 ran their best time of the year in spite of the icy conditions.
Rob Danson of Wesham Road Runners was the race winner and the first lady home was Laura Hesketh of Clayton le Moors Harriers.
“An absolute brilliant club race event that would rival professional companies for organization, marshal enthusiasm, value for money and awesome medal and bag. A great HQ with a pub landlord that really embraced the event with his friendly staff and excellent food and tea offers.
Well done Wesham Road Runners on a fab event.”
