THE THIRTIETH Harlow Ten Mile Road Race saw hundreds of runners enjoy and endure a challenging run around the outskirts of Harlow.

The event was testament to the hard work and enthusiasm of Harlow Running Club, who have created a feel good event that attracts runners from all over the region.

The race started and finished at Mark Hall Sports centre and wound its way through Church Langley, Hastingwood, the edge of Old Harlow, Foster Street, the Latton Street cycle track and back to Mark Hall.

Special thanks to Harlow RC’s Jamie Jephcott who wrote special inspirational messages on a stretch of the course.

The race was won by Mark Newton of Springfield Striders in 54.52.

First Harlow man home was Craig Segal in 1.00.28

First woman home was Kelly Rowland of Bishops Stortford Running Club in 1.07.28.

First Harlow woman home was Carinne Jay in 1.15.47.

Race Director, Paul Schroder said: “We worked hard to improve the race with chip timing, pacers and a proper bespoke Harlow medal. We also had the most finishers since 2011 .

“I want to say a massive thank you to the 70-plus volunteers without whom we could not run the event.

The whole club really comes together to put on this amazing event. The sponsors, stalls and charities involved made it a great family day. The feedback this year has been positive with people really praising our fabulous marshals and super organisation. I am so proud
