Three runners from Newport & District Running Club took part in the Shrewsbury 10k this weekend, as organised events continue to get back up and running following the pandemic restrictions being relaxed further. Despite the rain the day before, the runners were greeted with some good weather and great conditions for running.
Overall, 1,561 runners from far and wide took to the streets of the county town, in a route which started and finished in the Quarry, and took runners through the town centre, as well as through suburbs such as Coleham, Kingsland, Porthill and Frankwell.
Darren Hesbrook-Edwards led the way for the Newport contingent, setting his fastest ever 10k time of 43:53 to take 136th position overall. He was joined by fellow NDRC members Martin Murdoch, who finished 1,058th in a time of 1:03:54, and Amanda Ingram, who was 1,242nd with a time of 1:09:09.
