This Sunday will see one of the north west’s most popular events, the Birchwood 10K, celebrate its 31st year. Online registration for the race closes later on today (Tuesday 12 August), with entry priced at £16.70, or £14.70 for UKA Club Members.
The 10K, organised by Spectrum Striders, is regarded as Warrington’s ‘Premier Road Race’ and boasts a relatively flat course. Up to 1200 runners are expected to compete in the anniversary event, with a 2K Fun Run also organised for earlier in the day. The nominated charity for this year’s race is Prostate Cancer UK.
The 2013 competition saw Salford Harriers’ Tarus Elly successfully defend his title in a time of 31:05, with Louise Gardner leading the female field home in 35:30. David Webb and Hayley Haining hold the current course records of 29:52 and 32:59, set in 2008 and 2007 respectively.
