A 10K race around Cardiff Bay

Run 4 Wales 10K Series Champions revealed

Matt Clowes and Eleanor Davies have been crowned king and queen of the inaugural Run 4 Wales 10K Series.

The three race series, consisting of the Brecon Carreg Cardiff Bay Run, ABP Newport Wales 10K and Brecon Carreg Barry Island 10K, attracted more than 12,000 runners and some of Britain’s best elite endurance athletes.

In order to be eligible for the overall series prize, athletes had to have competed in at least two of the races. Their two fastest times were totalled to determine the male and female series winners.

Despite finishing second to Charlie Hulson at Cardiff Bay and Dewi Griffiths on Barry Island, Clowes clocked 29 minutes 37 seconds in the series opener before battling the hills and heat of Barry to finish in 30:27. The Cardiff AAC runner blitzed the competition with his total tome of 60:04 to take the inaugural Run 4 Wales 10K Series crown.

Newport Harriers’ Eritrean prospect Abed Teweldebrhan finished 2 minutes, 48 seconds back after impressive runs at the Newport Wales 10K and Cardiff Bay Run. Swansea Harrier Phil Matthews finished third with a time of 63:35 ahead of Bristol & West AC runner Luke Evans and White Rock Runner Oliver Williams.

Bristol & West AC’s Eleanor Davis is the deserved Women’s champion after storming to victories on the South Wales coast at Cardiff Bay and Barry Island. The NHS doctor saw off her main rival, former Great Britain athlete Rachel Felton, to complete both 10K races in 68:19. Shaftesbury Barnet/Run Fast’s Felton competed in all three races but could not close a the gap to finish 1 minute, 25 seconds behind. Cardiff AAC’s Lucy Marland was third, Ruby Orchard was fourth and Louise Flynn was fifth.

Run 4 Wales 10 Series winners were rewarded with a £300 prize, second earned £200, third received £100, fourth £75 and fifth £50. Age category winners were awarded a £20 kit prize, winners can be seen below.
