The 2023 Thirsk 10
Yet again another hugely successful THIRSK 10 in the bag. Thank you for coming!
Well done to all participants who between them have some great PBs. Having your fellow runners cheer you on is awesome.
Thanks to each and everyone who has helped whether you’ve supported, cheered, run, cycled, registered, watered, driven, collected, bagged, photographed, car parked, fun run helpers, scouts, sign erected, marshalled or been at the end of my phone calls and emails to answer my never ending questions. A day like today doesn’t happen without a team, it’s no one individual.
Our first aiders said it was a quiet day at the office with only 2 runners visiting them after completing the race after an asthma and a panic attack so that’s good news.
Dame Tanni Grey Thompson and husband Ian came and supported us and Tanni went round with the last wheelchair racer whilst Ian raced himself. The fastest wheelchair racer Callum Hall wanted 40 minutes and led superbly by John Withinshaw on his bike managed a fab 39:59!
The race winner was Graham Rush who is a V40(!) from Leeds City AC and ran a fantastic 49:04 breaking our old course record from 2020 of 51:54. May for perspective the first 3 finishers beat the course record!
A fast day at THIRSK 10 with last years winner, Rob Scott finishing 7th.

Plant a tree
£5 of your entry fee will go towards plant a tree, with the aim that we will plant at least 1 acre of woodland as part of Thirsk 10. It will be matched by funding from Trees for Climate which will pay for the maintenance of that tree for the next 15 years.
About Thirsk 10
About the Thirsk 10
The Thirsk 10 has been run for over 30 years and in the early days it was run from Northallerton to Thirsk. However with the passage of time and the increase in road traffic the route had to be changed. For many years the route went through Sowerby and then out into the country, but some years ago the route had to be changed again because of the problems with closing the roads around town and the resulting traffic congestion.
We now have a fast flat course which lends its self to a fast time and gives all abilities a chance of achieving a PB. It is a wheel chair friendly route and such competitors are started 10 minutes ahead of the main field. In recent years the Club has hosted the North of England 10 mile Championship, Yorkshire Veterans Championships and the North Yorkshire Championships.
