Wimborne 10, another successful day in the racing calendar – 15 November 2015

Steve Wyatt reports from Pamphill

A small chink in the weather window on an otherwise windy and wet weekend saw the 18th annual Dorset Lettings Wimborne 10 Road Race take place on 15th November 2015.

Another sell out, with a potential 535 starters, saw the Race director sweating over numbers but the weather proved to be the dominant factor in attendance with 445 finishers and the remainder perhaps having a bit more sense!

The men’s race saw a closely fought tussle between Duncan Cooper of Lytchett Manor Striders and Graeme Miller of Bournemouth AC in the first 4 miles, before Duncan, recently reconvened to race running after a 20 year absence, pulled away to seal his victory as not only 1st male home but 1st in the MV50 category.  In third place was David Hicks of Poole AC.

First 3 males (L to R) Graeme Miller, Duncan Cooper, David Hicks

In the ladies race, local favourite Lesley Moore of Poole AC showed her class to achieve 1st place in 68.39, followed closely home by Rachel Jones (unaffiliated) and in third was Sarah Chaloner of Poole AC.

First 3 females (L to R) Sarah Chaloner, Lesley Moore, Rachel Jones

For the first time, Wimborne AC Road Runners extended the number of individual prizes to 28, all provided by Healey’s Mobile Valeting, by offering 1st and 2nd places in 7 male and 7 female categories.  Team prizes were generously donated by Hall and Woodhouse and were both won by Poole AC.

Winning male team – Poole AC
(L to R) Steve Cook, Nigel Rogerson, David Hicks (Jon Spear not present)
and Barrie George (Owner of Dorset Lettings)


Winning female team – Poole AC
(L to R) Louella O’Herlihy, Sarah Chaloner, Lesley Moore,
and Barrie George (Owner of Dorset Lettings)

A special mention must go to our Wimborne AC runners Kerry Mapp and Lynn Hutchings who won the MV55 and FV50 categories respectively.

A huge thank you to all our club members, their families and helpers who made this popular event the success it is.  Start perfecting your cake recipes for next year!
