Some notes about the Huddersfield 10k for those thinking of entering:

  • We aim to be one of the cheapest races with an entry fee of £10 for ARC/UKA affiliates or £12 unattached, plus an additional 50p for online entries, but with a good prize list and t-shirt for all finishers as we wish to encourage runners to take part.
  • Prizes to first six males, first six females, winning vet. categories and first three teams. Prize list totals £1,600 with first place cash prize and Run Direct vouchers.
  • The Huddersfield 10k uses disposable chip number timing. The race numbers and chips need to be collected on the morning of the race.
  • Entrants providing a mobile phone number will receive a text message with their race result.
  • The course is undulating - what do you expect in the Pennines - but with a fast finish!
  • Course record for males is 32:28 (2013) held by Mohamed Aburezeq of Altrincham & District AC and for females is 36:07 (2002) held by Rowan Smith of Scarborough AC.
  • There is a £100 bonus for anyone creating a new course record (male and female).
  • We have listened to feedback and for 2016 the finishers t-shirt will be an improved quality performance t-shirt.
  • Marshals are withdrawn in line with a 15 minute mile pace.
  • Changing rooms and showers are available for use.
  • On race day there are hot drinks and bacon butties available, which can at least be enjoyed by the spectators, and the bar is open afterwards for runners to enjoy a well earned drink whilst the presentations take place.
  • Run Direct of Barnoldswick will again be present with their race shop.
  • Results will be available shortly after the race on this page and on www.ukresults.net.

2016 Race Report

Our race is held on the last Sunday in February each year, with our last one on Sunday 28th February 2016, which was the 26th running of the Huddersfield 10k.  

The weather forecast in the lead up to the race was suggesting we were in for a cold dry day, and on the day the weather lived up to its promise making ideal running conditions.

2016 saw continued use of chip timing and that meant we could manage up to 700 entrants, we are delighted to report that we sold out, with race entries closed on Monday 22nd February.  For the disappointed runners that didn’t get their entry in, we'll be opening entries for the 2017 Huddersfield 10k in early November so get yours submitted in plenty of time.

The men's (and race) winner was Tristan Learoyd, an ‘open category’ member of New Marske Harriersin a time of 34:27 minutes, a 30 second distance ahead of Stockport Harrier's James Scott-Buccleuch, a male vet over 35, who came in at 34:57.  Third place went to Peter Hoyle from Longwood Harriers who finished in 35:17.

The first lady finisher was Johanna Winks, a female vet over 35, of Halifax Harriers with a time of 41:24, followed home by Fiona Kesteven, female vet over 40, from Totley AC in a ‘notch up’ from her last year’s third place in a time of 42:42.  Third place went to Penny Ditchfield from Melthan AC, also a female vet over 35 in a time of 43:33. 

A turnout from Huddersfield's Stadium Runners enabled the club to claim the first team prize in men's category, ahead of Longwood Harriers as 2nd and Meltham AC who took the 3rd men’s team prize.  The ladies team prizes were claimed by Meltham AC, Stainland Lions and Holmfirth Harriers respectively.

Photos from the 2016 Huddersfield 10k are available at www.adiesphotography.co.uk/huddersfield-10k-2016.

Thank you to everyone who took part and I hope you enjoyed the undulating Yorkshire course and great weather on the day.  We hope to see you again in 2017.
