The Dronfield 10k is a very well-established local race raising funds for the 7th Dronfield Scout Group and the Dronfield Mayor’s Charity. Traditionally held around the end of April, it’s been a regular fixture since 1993. This is a road-race which is described as ‘undulating’. Tickets for the main event are limited to 1100 and a 2k fun-run starts from the same place a few minutes after the main event has started

This year’s race took place on the 28th April 2024 – a year already being spoken about as having one of the wettest starts to the year in living memory. The weather forecast cast leading up to the day wasn’t looking good and sadly they were spot-on – around 5 degrees and raining.

Nevertheless, I and 851 other runners dragged ourselves out of bed and assembled on the start-line just before 10am. The claxon sounded and the race started. It begins with a small loop – about a kilometre of gentle ascent – then downhill into two longer loops. The race is on closed roads, and even though you’re always either going up hill or downhill, none of the hills are particularly steep – however, I’d probably describe this race as ‘hilly’ as opposed to the advertised ‘undulating’. Regardless of the weather, there was a great atmosphere as always, with plenty of supporters braving the elements to cheer on the runners. The day appeared to go perfectly smoothly and a good time was had by all.

The winning time for the 10k was from Jack Wergen (Hallamshire Harriers of course!) finishing in a stunning 00:32:44 and first female was Hannah Walker (Dronfield RC) in 38:18. First Totley back was Joel Paisley in 00:38:19 followed by Claire Biercamp in 38:47
