News – Lichfield Half Marathon Trophy

Geraldine's Angels

Geraldine’s Angels: Emma Acton, Laura Acton, Christine Carter, Sue Davis, Gill Fitzpatrick, Helen Heath, Angie Ling, Lynn Smith

The trophy presented to the winner of the 4th Lichfield Half Marathon this year is to be renamed the Geraldine Agnew Trophy in honour of the Gym Manager at Lichfield Health and Fitness Club where she had worked for many years before tragically passing away due to a brain aneurysm whilst on holiday in Vietnam last December.

Kevin Wilson of organisers KP Events paid tribute to Geraldine who he knew as a member of the gym where she worked; “Geraldine was a keen runner and helped us when we were putting the first half marathon together in Lichfield in 2010, she would run the course and feedback her thoughts as an experienced marathon runner. I’ll never forget how proud she was to run in the very first Lichfield Half Marathon in May 2010 so to name the event trophy in her honour was just something we really wanted to do as a fitting memory to her and her family.”
