THE BRINSWORTH 10K run celebrated reaching 10-up with a bumper field.

Almost 200 runners took part in the tenth annual run.

First home in the fun run was Billy Lunn, who raced round the 1km course in six minutes and 19 seconds, while the men’s race was won by Shaun Wright and Zanthe Wray took first prize in the ladies.

The Brinsworth 10k was founded in 2010 by Mark and Joanne Robinson in aid of cancer research in memory of Mark’s dad Kevin, who died the previous year aged 68, and this year’s event raised around £3,000 for Weston Park Hospital.
Wright won the testing event in 37.08 in warm conditions, with clubmate John Hackleton not far behind in 37.23.

Steel City Strider Sam Brown claimed third spot with 37.48.

Zanthe Wray from Dark Peak Runners was the first lady to finish, timing 38.40.
Kimberworth Strider Lindsy James was second lady, finishing in 40.15, ahead of third-placed Molly Platts from Rotherham Harriers in 41.18.
