Kenilworth Runners hosted the Mayday 10k on Monday 5th May. The race is named for its challenging three laps over the hills of Abbey Fields providing one of the toughest 10k races in the midlands.  The event also incorporated a 3 leg relay and was followed by a fun run and a schools challenge.  The bank holiday weather brought the crowds out and there were many late entries in the fun run and plenty of supporters.

The 10k race was won by Andrew Siggers of Kenilworth Runners in a time of 37:38.  Siggers controlled the race from the front and pulled away from his closest rivals Iwan Jones of Coventry Godiva and Victor Garanto of Spa Striders on the second lap, finishing one a half minutes ahead of Garanto at the finish.  The ladies race was won by Angela Chahal of Leamington C&AC in a time of 46:39.  Kenilworth Runners Richard Broadbent (6th), Clive Pearce (9th) and Vassilis Andreoulakis (18th) along with Siggers won the club team prize.
