Organiser “planning” for return of Welshpool 10K

The organiser of the Welshpool 10k which had to be shelved due to Covid-19 over the past two years said he is back on track after receiving the first licence issued in Wales for a road/trail event.

Alan Lewis, of Adrenaline Events, had attracted over 800 entries for the 2020 Welshpool 10k, but Covid took a grip in the weeks running up to the March event.

Following the second wave this winter, the 2021 edition was also cancelled, but runners did manage to raise a brilliant £5,000 for Hope House by taking part virtually instead.

But, an upbeat Alan is now back in organising mode, and while he said “we can now look forward to planning for a Welshpool 10k in 2022” he has his first event on June 19, which also passes through Welshpool.

The Midnight Ride starts in Oswestry and takes in a large Shropshire/Powys loop, of 115km with cyclists passing through Guilsfield and Welshpool, including Powis Castle.

“I am extremely excited for events to be going ahead after a tough 15 months,” said Alan.

“We have missed seeing people and the event atmosphere. This seems like a big breakthrough for us and many other event organisations.

“We are thrilled to be the first company to be issued with a licence by Welsh Athletics and we can’t wait to see runners at our first event on July 4 (Brynkinalt Running Festival).

“I feel it is a big deal, it’s awesome we get the first licence and a great feeling knowing that things are moving in the right direction. We can now also look forward to planning for a Welshpool 10k in 2022."
