2015 Decathlon City of Salford 10k
A record number of runners descended on Salford Quays on Sunday (6th September) to take part in this year’s Decathlon City of Salford 10K.
The race welcomed more than 3,700 runners who took to the streets of Salford, following a scenic route around Salford Quays and MediaCityUK.
James Douglas from Border Harriers running club, triumphed in the men’s race with an impressive finish time of 31 minutes and 21 seconds. Tesfaye Debele took second position with 31 minutes and 43 seconds, and Ben Riddell finished in third place closely behind with a time of 31 minutes and 48 seconds.
In the women’s race, Vale Royal’s Katie Brough crossed the line first in a time of 34 minutes and 36 seconds. Kirsty Longley from Liverpool Pembroke and Sefton finished in 37 minutes and 8 seconds and Rhiannon Silson from Border Harriers finished in third place in 37 minutes and 35 seconds.
We had a fantastic day, and we are proud of each and every single runner who joined us. It was inspirational to hear the crowds roars as thousands crossed the finish line having raised hundreds for some great causes, beating PB’s and most importantly having a big smile across their faces!
We would like to say a big thank you to our sponsors; Decathlon, Sixt car rental & Reuben’s Retreat and of course our all volunteers who helped make the Decathlon City of Salford 10k a truly spectacular event.

Decathlon City of Salford 10k Official Charity Partner
Reuben’s Retreat is a charity that was born in memory of Reuben Michael Graham who tragically passed away aged 23 months.
Our goal is to provide a retreat in the North West of England countryside that will relieve the distress of families and their close friends who have suffered the bereavement of a child or have a child suffering from a life limiting or life threatening illness.
A testimonial from one of the Mums that we've helped: - "When there was nothing out there to help us through the hardest times since losing our daughter, Reuben's Retreat gave us a shining light to help! When we felt alone, we found friends! Amazing, a sense of we are all in this together.
