History of the Tad 10
T3 have taken on the baton this year as main organisers of the Tad 10
The Tadcaster 10 road race was established in 1983 by Tadcaster Methodist Church before Tadcaster Harriers had even been formed. The Harriers subsequently took it on and it was a fixture on the Summer calendar until the last race in 2002. At the height of it’s popularity in the late 1980’s it attracted nearly 1000 runners.The course record was set in the first race by Steve Anders, St Helens AC, at 48.07 and plenty of top class runners tried to better it, the closest being Colin Moore of Bingley in 48.37.Veroniqe Marot, an international athlete who represented Leeds City AC set a mark of 58.37 in the very first race. This was subsequently demolished by Lynn Everington of Stretford AC who ran 56.02 in 1987, coming 31st out of 735 finishers.The original route was 1 lap of Tadcaster, east toward York and then through the countryside, past Catterton, through Healaugh and Wighill, returning to Tadcaster and finishing very close to where the leisure centre stands. Although we have had to change it this year due to the bridge collapsing – we hope to restore it to the original route next year.The current Chairman of the Tadcaster Harriers did all 20 of them – will he back for more this year??
