ENTRIES are now open for the twelfth running of the Wiltshire 10 road race which is taking place in Melksham on Sunday 11th February.
“This is one of the most popular races in the South West of England, regularly attracting over 500 runners,” says Darren from organisers, Stampede Sports. “The run starts in Lowbourne Road and follows a certified accurate 10-mile course out along Sandridge Road and into Lower Woodrow leading to a loop around the historic village of Lacock, before returning back to finish alongside the River Avon in King George V Playing Fields.
“Not only is the course picturesque but it has also provided the opportunity for runners to record some fast times with the current course records being 49:34 set by Daniel Studley of Bristol & West AC in 2017 and 56:18 set by Jenny Spink also of Bristol & West AC in 2016.
“Over 500 runners are expected to take part and all finishers will receive a specially commissioned medal. Prizes will also be on offer to the first three men and women as well as to the winners of the V40, V50 and V60 age categories.”
