A field of 498 competitors took part in this year’s Bradley Stoke 10k Run held on Sunday 11th June 2023 as part of the annual Community Festival.

The runners had to contend with humid conditions following some welcome overnight rain – the first of any significance for over a month – and an air temperature of around 20 degrees.

Winning times on the multi-terrain route along the pavements and tracks of Bradley Stoke were slightly below those recorded last year, perhaps reflecting the testing conditions.
