Dudley Ladies take on DK 10k under clear blue skies

Hundreds of runners from across the Midlands lined up beneath clear blue skies for the annual 10k run around the roads of Wall Heath and Kingswinford.

Around 30 of  Dudley Ladies finest joined over 1200 other runners from across the Midlands to set out on this year’s Dudley-Kingswinford 10km Road Race in warm and breezy conditions on Wednesday 5th May.

“Mad” Mac Carr, who last month completed seven marathons on seven continents in seven days as running partner of “Blind Dave” Heeley, blasted the horn to get the race under way at 7.15pm.

Running clubs across the region, including groups from Kidderminster, Stourport, Dudley, Stourbridge and Stafford, were also well represented.

Well-wishers lined the route, which goes out from Dudley Kingswinford Rugby Club in Swindon Road, down the Mile Flat and through the countryside before the finish line back at the club, to scream encouragement to the runners.

Leading the way for Dudley Ladies were Isobel Stavenuiter, Leeann West and Kathryn Morgan with a whole host of others too numerous to mention not far behind.

Claire Martin from Telford AC headed the women’s field, also taking her third title in three appearances at the event as she crossed the line in 35 minutes 36 seconds.

Never slow in coming forward, our girls may not have won the race but they did manage to get themselves prominently displayed on a full page spread about the race in Thursdays Express & Star.
