On Wednesday evening, three runners from Newport & District Running Club took part in the DK10K, a 10k road race organised by Dudley Kingswinford Running Club. This slightly undulating course starts and finishes at Dudley Kingswinford Rugby Club, and features a “lollipop” style route that winds around the lanes between Greensforge and Enville.

A total of 557 runners took part on a sunny May evening, and it was Oliver Stokes who was the first NDRC runner to complete the race, finishing 156th overall, with a time of 48 minutes, 31 seconds. He was followed by Ralph Humphries, whose time of 58:06 secured 373rd place, and Oliver’s dad John, who finished 531st in a time of 1:12:00.
