2000 Conquer Plymouth

Finishers show off their medals

Over 2,000 runners took part in Plymouth 10K on Sunday, the fourth time the event has taken place in the Devon maritime city.

Organised by GO2 events, the event has quickly established itself as the biggest 10k in Devon and Cornwall. Runners were once again treated to a fast, flat, traffic-free route in fine conditions. The race was won by Bristol and West AC runner Tom Merson, who raced home in 31:35. In second place came Josh Trigwell of Exeter Harriers in 31:54, with last year’s winner Johnny Gilby completing the top three in 32:04. The leading lady was Jane Khan in 37:56, followed by Ami Yetton in 38:59 and Cleo Andrews in 39:35.

Organisers GO2 were delighted with the turnout and the inspirational crowd support shown by Plymouth residents. Jamie Warren at GO2 said: "We saw some great performances by our elite runners, as well as some fantastic fancy dress outfits from all of our charity fun runners. Hopefully many of these runners will use the 10k race as the start of their training for Plymouth’s Half Marathon 2015. The race had a fantastic atmosphere, and we hope to see lots of familiar faces return in the Spring!”

Pre-registration is now open for next year’s race at the event website.
