Catterick 10km

Race Reports

A fundraising 10km race to help injured servicemen and woman take part in extreme sporting challenges has been hailed a success.

Although organisers of the first Catterick 10k, on Sunday, February 16, do not yet know how much money has been raised, they said the feedback from the 250 runners was that the event was friendly, fun and well organised.

The Northern Echo:

The route started at Help for Heroes recovery centre Phoenix House, Catterick Garrison, taking runners north along the A6136, onto Sandbeck before turning left onto Hudswell Lane, cutting onto Brokes Lane, and back onto the A6108, though Spring Wood and Throstle Gill on Plumer Road.

Runners then turned onto Hudswell Road West to head back to the centre. Paul Cook was an unofficial 9th place in 38.35 on a very challenging course.
