Race date: Sunday 18th February 2018
This 5 mile race is organised by the Wombwell Sporting Athletic Club and has been around for some years – great work by the Club. The course is described with commendable brevity as an undulating 2 laps on a go-kart track and then on to the road. The more extreme runners who expect to be competing with go-karts will likely have been disappointed!
398 runners took part with Scott Hinchcliffe of Penistone Footpath Runners getting the chequered flag in 26:00. Samantha Johnson of Rotherham Harriers and AC was first woman home, in 29:19.
