Telford 10K

Telford 10k is a popular race that attracts many club members from around the country including the Elite runners and many of K&D. Luckily it didn’t snow this year and the conditions were better although a little damp.

First home was Michael Williamson and then Chris Revell, and Nicky Evans was our first lady home. New member Michelle Hampton also took on the course for her first race for K&D. She told me her goal was 1 hr 15, and she well and truly smashed that goal. Well done Michelle! All results/times below:
