Results – Lichfield Half-Marathon 2014


Alice Bradshaw Smith 3rd Hannah Bridger 1st Deborah Gilman 2nd


Alec Bednall


The 4th annual Lichfield Half-Marathon in association with Virgin Active witnessed a win for Alec Bednall who took the lead between 3 and 4 miles and then simply ran away in fine style to finish on Stowe Field in 1;16;26 and have over 2 minutes in hand over second placed James Coombes from Lichfield Running Club in 1;18;42 who had a narrow win over 3rd placed Alastair Payne in 1;18;50.

The women’s race was won by Hannah Bridger in 1;27;05 who was well in front of second placed Deborah Gilman in 1;29;50 with Alice Bradshaw-Smith in third in 1;31;08.

Kevin Wilson of organisers KP Events was delighted with the event and the atmosphere created; “Lichfield and the surrounding villages of Whittington and Fradley really turned out in big numbers to support the half marathon and it was great to experience a real buzz at the finish on Stowe Field under the gaze of the city’s magnificent cathedral, truly unique a finish as there is to any running event in the UK and the city can be proud to host an event that pulls in over 3000 people in runners and friends and family, really fantastic all round”


The newly named Geraldine Agnew Trophy was presented to winner Alec Bednall (2nd left) by brother Phillip Cass. Geraldine, a marathon runner and gym manager at Lichfield Health and Fitness Club in the city, tragically died of a brain aneurysm on holiday in Vietnam in December 2013 and organisers KP Events felt it would be a fitting tribute to rename the trophy in her honour.

Xtreme Challenge 2014 winner Connor Hancock

Xtreme Challenge 2014 winner Connor Hancock

A record number of entries took part in the XTREME (MUD) CHALLENGE at Catton Hall Estate Sunday the 9th Feb 2014. The conditions underfoot were just horrible and super muddy but we’ve had lots of superb feedback – seems like the tougher the conditions the more you love the Xtreme.

The weather on the day was kind, shame about the previous 5 weeks deluge of rain turning underfoot conditions into something resembling a quagmire of biblical proportions!!

The hazards were plenty (mudslides, electric fences, cargo nets, water tunnels, prickly undergrowth, smoke bombs, fences, impassable inclines, wind and more) but the record entry whooped and hollered like mad things and a great day was had by all. Well done you mud champions !!


Connor Hancock led out a record entry field from the start on an even tougher course designed by us, KP Events. Connor seemed at times to be running on top of the mud as he flew round in a time of 41:07 well ahead of 2012 winner Robert Hall second in 42:13 and Chris McCabe third in 44:46. A record number of female runners entered this year and first home was Laura Appleby in 55.41, 2nd was Heidi Hunt in 57:28 ahead of Jen Seager in 58:47.
