Caroline Wheelhouse Runs Fastest UK F60 10 Mile Time of all Time

On 25 November Caroline Wheelhouse broke the 9 year old record by 37 seconds, finishing with a time of 67:24.  Congratulations on an amazing run!

“Records are there to be broken, but if this one lasts only one week it has meant the perfect end to a season that started so badly!

After the bruises had faded from my London Marathon I had to start again to rebuild my season, which was a slow and patient process, but gradually things came together over the summer and culminated in the chance to run in an England XC vest.

Whilst running the TCS Amsterdam Half in October my average pace meant that I had also run the UK all-time fastest F60 10 miles, so I decided to see if I could do it again in a 10 mile race! The Derby 10 is a good fast course – although I was a bit surprised when we turned a corner and found a long section of grass – and the weather was very cold, but okay.

Although I think my XCs had taken away a bit of sharpness I felt strong and when the clock came in sight I was elated to think that I’d achieved something so good through summer’s hard work. And next year I’ll try to go faster!”

The Doncaster 10k – 25 November 2018

Great running by George Phillips running a 2 minute PB and being first DAC runner to

finish.  1st DAC lady to finish was Marie-Louise Taylor who ran her fastest 10k since 2015.

1st 3 in the various age groups were George PhillipsConnor AndersonKevin Newmanmax joynesJack PellMargaret ButlerSue Greaves.

Dozens of our runners got PB’s and some got major benchmarks like 1st sub 40 or first sub hour.  You can see from the range of times that we are a competitive and inclusive club, as club captain I am proud of you all.  I know lots of the athletes who ran with the Pacers (from 40 minutes up to 65 minutes) achieved some amazing times with their help, they run with us every week so come and join them on our club nights along with the 85 runners who took part from DAC.

Claire Sayles wrote “Nearly ready for taking my tired legs off to bed now, but not without saying a massive thank you to you all. I haven’t been in the club long, but in this short time I have received such amazing support. So much so that you all inspired me to do my first 10k today at Doncaster instead of waiting for Gainsborough in March. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Proud to call you all my running family. What a fantastic day 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♂️ xxx” Continue reading
