The fun run is around the UK’s smallest park – Princes Park off Church Road and Farewell Lane in Burntwood, and follows on from the hugely successful initial Worlds Shortest Fun Run held round the same venue last May
It will only take approx 55 strides to get around Princes Park, in approximately 25 seconds; and everyone who takes part will be a record holder, once it’s verified by the Guinness Book of World Records.
Everyone taking part of any age any ability must dress up as a superhero of some shape or form and prizes are on offer in two ‘best of categories, firstly:
BEST EXISTING SUPERHERO, the best costume worn for a Batman Superwoman or other existing superhero OR
BEST ORIGINAL SUPERHERO, the best costume for a newly named new original superhero created by the person wearing the costume.
Virgin Active will select the two winners on the morning of the event.

Details of how to help raise funds will be available in due course.

Unfortunately there won’t be a Dash event this year as it has been impossible to finalise arrangements with suppliers and sponsors. This is due to long standing commitments from ourselves and others to a point where, with only a few weeks to go, we are unable to guarantee that we can stage the event to the standard ourselves and others would expect. The decision has not been easy, interest has been high from the public and the running and cycling communities and until very recently, we had hopes that the dash would go ahead as planned but realism has to guide our decision not romanticism for a much loved sporting institution. We can only stress that the dash has not been consigned to the history books just yet, the work begins now to seek a new date in 2015.
BEDNALL BEDS DOWN FOR HALF-MARATHON VICTORY
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”
NEW TROPHY HANDED OVER
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.
