Canterbury 10 mile – race report

The Canterbury 10 Mile Road Race has often been the curtain raiser for start of a new racing season and it kicked off 2022’s in style. The Canterbury 10 is known for being a challenging race with plenty of undulation, tough hills and a fast finish to make this a great course for racing. 


Runners from all over Kent attended in large numbers for near perfect weather conditions was a welcome surprise to an event that is usually accustomed to sub zero temperatures and sideways rain. 


Equally turning out in great numbers was our own TRACies with over 30 runners donning the iconic light blue vests that featured many of our seasoned regulars as well as plenty of new faces. 


The Canterbury 10 also marked the start of our own Club Championships and therefore it was only fitting that our TRACies delivered suitably worthy performances. Leading the pack and finishing in a power (sub 60) 58:17 and 18th overall was Andy Stevens. Andy was followed by one of our new members, Ben Drumm, who finished in an impressive 01:01:11 and we look forward to seeing more from Ben throughout the year. Another one of our new members, Jude Wood, who has been representing our Club in the cross country was our third TRACie home in an impressive 1:02:00. 



For our ladies it was Jo Holl that led the charge and finished in a cracking time of 1:18:57. Jo was closed followed by another one for a fairly new members, Tamasin Dorosti, who has also been enjoying the trails in representing the club in the cross country. Tamasin finished with a strong 1:20:10. Nikki Boyes was our third lady to finish and finished in a very good time of 1:22:10. 


This years race was littered with fantastic performances from our TRACies which included a number of PB’s from Jordan Gilbert and Ryan Dargan. Gemma Hughes also ran her first race as a Thanet Roadrunner. Well done all. 



Other notable mentions go to Chris Brenchley and another one of our newer members, Dean Evans, producing a brilliant head to head sprint to the finish line. There was also further healthy competition on the course between Spencer Hoult and Steve Suttle as they traded places throughout the race. It was also great to have father and son duo Simon and Jacob Burton racing together and running well as Jacob is also now coaching his dad in preparation for the Manchester Marathon in April. 


Overall this was an incredible day for the Thanet Roadrunners with a fantastic turnout and even better performances. Long may this continue throughout the year.
