Results for the Green Leek 10k – 9.10.16
The Green Leek 10K was a brand new multi-terrain 10k race through the Warwickshire Countryside. It was a point to point route which started near to Burton Green Primary School and finish near All Saints school in Leek Wooton. The event was held to raise money for the two primary schools in the Green Leek Federation.
Most of the course was run on the historic Kenilworth Greenway, the site of the old Kenilworth Railway for 4.5k. Runners then went through Abby Fields, taking in views of Kenilworth Castle before entering the fields behind the Castle Sports Centre, making their way across farmland to Rouncil Lane. The route then joined a trail around the Warwickshire Golf Club finishing on a large field. Former world record holder David Moorcroft started the run which was slightly longer than 10k, (nearer 10.2k, 6.4 miles). A Great local event, it would be good to see this repeated next year.
