37th Annual Preston 10 Mile Road Race
The annual Preston 10 Mile Road Race is a major event in the Preston Harriers year and in 2018 it takes place on November 18.
This well-established and popular race first run in 1981 has brought large fields of over 550 runners to Hutton in mid-November.
In 2018 it will once again incorporate the Lancashire AA 10 Mile Road Championship.
The fast flat course attracts many runners looking for a PB. It starts at Tolsey Drive, close to Hutton Grammar School, and follows a UKA measured two-lap course to finish at the race HQ, Hutton Grammar School.
The 2017 race took place in sunny, still and cold conditions, ideal for distance running. Runners came from all over Lancashire and Merseyside and beyond. From 670 entries (a 45% increase on the previous year) there were 565 finishers and the race was won by Karl Darcy of Bolton United Harriers in 51:24. Second was David Rigby of Salford Harriers in 53:13. First woman was Preston Harrier’s Olympian Helen Clitheroe who took 18th place overall in 59:38. Lancashire County champions were David Rigby and Helen Clitheroe.
