PHOTOS: Kilham Multi-Terrain 10k and Fun Run 2022

Nicola Knaggs has hailed the competitors, volunteers, sponsors and everyone involved in creating another successful Kilham Mutli-Terrain 10K.

Over 200 runners took to the start line on the morning of 23rd October, setting off on the ring of the church bells, with the majority of runners reaching the finish before the heavens opened.

James Wilson of Bridlington Road Runners won in 36 minutes and 55 seconds, over a minute clear of second place Matthew Sizer from Yorkshire Wolds Runners.

The first female finisher was Charlotte Smith, who was 19th overall in 43 minutes and 36 seconds and 97 seconds ahead of Lois England, the next woman home.

The children’s 1K fun run which followed the main event wasn’t as lucky when it came to the weather, however, it didn’t stop the youngsters giving it their all, with around 40 taking part.

Nicola Knaggs, secretary of Kilham Playing Fields Association (KPFA), that organises the event, told the Wolds Weekly: “It was another great day and a fantastic event made successful by so many people.

“The race had over 200 runners and James Wilson really stormed home to take first place.

“It wasn’t the best of weather but everyone finished and the kids in the fun run really got soaked, but they weren’t bothered at all and managed to complete it.

“We’ve had some lovely feedback from those taking part, spectating and volunteering, which is really touching.

“We really appreciate all the support we receive from sponsors, local businesses and the community of Kilham and beyond.

“We had over 40 volunteers taking part, most of who were soaked at the end, but we couldn’t do it without them.

“It encompasses a real community event and it buys into our ethos at KPFA.

“We had prizes handed out for the first three places, both overall and for men and women, as well as categories.

“Runners ranged from aged 15 up until nearly 80, which shows the scale and accessibility of the event.”

The race was sponsored by Bee Health, who also sponsored the medals, whilst each finisher of the 10K was given a goodie bag.

It comprised a £5 voucher for The Old Star, flapjack courtesy of Lilly’s Plumbing and Yorkshire Tonic from Raisthorpe Manor.

Andy Hire Bridlington provided race support equipment, whilst other sponsors included G Boyes Garage, B&F Potatoes, Rafters Electrical, Hunmanby Pantry, Rose Cottage Butchers, Rare Bird Gin Distillery, Tate Smith and Raven Hill Brewery.

Great Driffield Radio hosted the start, whilst FAB Medics were on hand for first aid issues and sweets were donated by Tesco for the children completing the fun run.
