Wigan 10K

Paul with Grandson, Caleb.
I was tired but euphoric as I completed the inaugural Wigan 10K on Sunday, 8th September raising funds for the Mayor's Charity 2013.

It was a fantastic day for the town and I wanted to place on record my thanks to the race organisers Joining Jack, Wigan Council and the many businesses who provided sponsorship.

Wigan Town Centre was transformed by a sea of humanity and the support along the route from residents was fantastic and spurred on runners along the whole route.

I finished in 58.08mins and beat my personal goal of coming home ahead of the hour mark. I hope that this successful first 10K will become an annual fixture in the life of the town.
