Wirral 10K Runners

Welcome Back Wirral 10K

On Sunday, runners enjoyed a fast and flat 10K with fabulous views from Wirral to Liverpool...

More than 500 runners pulled on their trainers on Sunday (15 October) to take on the challenge of the BTR Wirral 10K - the ninth staging of the race, which was last staged in 2021.

The 10K started and finished on Ian Fraser Walk in New Brighton with a course that took participants past Fort Perch Rock and along the picturesque promenade to Seacombe Ferry, before reaching the half-way 5K turnaround point and returning to the finish line.

The race was won by Neil Hennigan of Penny Lane Striders in 36:19. Second place went to Luca Noorpuri of Wirral AC in 36:27, followed by third placed David Hinde of Chester Triathlon Club in 36:57. First female finisher was Fay Hughes in 38:47. Second place was Paiwan Dodd in 42:01 with Charlie Weatherstone of Mersey Tri in third place in 42:49.

BTR Liverpool's Alan Rothwell commented: “We had a great turn-out for the BTR Wirral 10K across the runners, volunteers, and spectators – well done to everyone. The route takes in the incredible views from Wirral across to Liverpool, a real highlight of the race. It’s fast and flat, and we know many people recorded personal best times.

“A huge thank you to the volunteer teams who supported BTR and the runners on the day – Birkenhead Park Running Club, Everton in the Community, and Liverpool Running Bugs, as well as members of the Merseyside running community.”

The day’s most senior runners were BTR race regular 76-year-old Sidney Molyneux from Wallasey, who clocked a time of 1:11:20. Rosemary Rogers from Chester, aged 74, is also a regular in BTR races including the 52-mile BTR Tour Of Merseyside, she completed the race in an impressive 59:30.
