David Goodyear turned out to represent the blue and whites in this well renowned10k yesterday in the glorious sunshine. Along with hundreds of other runners from clubs all over Yorkshire he once again made short work posting a time of 56 minutes 44 seconds. In his own words he described this event as one of his favourites stating that it was “as good as ever” The Keighley 10k (Also incorporating the Keighley 5k) is a challenging race at the start of the running season which follows a circular route through the paths, parks, and roads of Keighley. Because it is scheduled for Mother’s Day, many run or walk with their Mum or take part in memory of their Mum. Wheelchair participants are welcomed though they do warn people considering this that it is a multi-terrain course and there are tough bits, in one position in particular a marshal has been briefed to give assistance if required. All participants received a bespoke Keighley 10K T-shirt. As the event takes place on Mothers’ Day. The main benefactor of this popular race who receive crucial funds raised by it is Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice. This year’s event was partnered by Keighley and Craven Athletics Club and sponsored by Colin Appleyard. Fantastic running once again David, well done!
