Runners turn out in force for Maidenhead Easter Ten race

Streams of road runners pounded the pavement as Maidenhead Athletic Club hosted its 61st Easter Ten race yesterday.


The annual run covers 10 miles, starting and finishing at Maidenhead Office Park in Westacott Way.

Phil Wicks of Belgrave Harriers was the overall winner in a time of 49 minutes and one second and Diane Moore of Headington Road Runners was the first woman home in 62 minutes and 58 seconds.

A total of 867 runners competed this year from clubs all over the country, with Vale of Aylesbury winning the men's team event and Headington Road Runners the women's.

Mayor of Windsor and Maidenhead, Cllr Andrew Jenner, was on hand to start the race and hand out medals.

Proceeds from the day are split between Thames Valley Adventure Playground and Maidenhead Athletic Club.
