The AvailableCar Wilne 10K. The results are in!


We recently announced the exciting news that we had partnered up with the Derby 10 Mile and Wilne 10k running events as the new headline sponsor. The AvailableCar Wilne 10K took place on Sunday 4th September in Draycott and is the one of the biggest events in the region attracting many international standard athletes.


On the day

We had an early start getting to the venue at 7.45am!

Aimee and Richard, our volunteers and drivers were busy getting the stand ready, with the rest of the team joining us later that morning!

We had a stand with 2 cars showcasing a Mazda MX-30 all electric vehicle and a Vauxhall Mokka showcasing the broad range of used cars we have on offer at AvailableCar.

We filled the Vauxhall Mokka with balloons and the spectators and runners were encouraged to guess how many balloons were in the car to be entered into a prize draw to win a free pair of this seasons Mizuno Running Trainers from Derby Runner.
