News – “RUNNERS WORLD” Accolades for KP Events
Well the new year has started positively for the team at KP Events!! There we were reading the February edition of the prestigious and UK’s number 1 running magazine Runners World when we found their “Review of Races in 2012” and what did we find ??? 4th in Top 5 of top adventure style races was our Xtreme Challenge at Catton Hall (this year on February 3rd) for which our friends at RW wrote; ”If the usual hazards of muddy tunnels, steep slopes, walls of hay bales and teeth chatteringly cold water pits weren’t punishing enough last year runners had to plough through the snow too.”
We can’t promise snow again in 2013 but we can say it will be the most Xtreme Challenge we’ve ever organised!!
And then in the category for the Top 10 races with PB Potential our Tamworth 10k finished, wait for it, only NUMBER 1!!! Our friends at RW said; “The flattish ground below the Grade 1 listed Tamworth Castle provided the starting and finishing lines for the 400 runners who hoped to battle their way to a PB last year. The canalside section in Fazeley was where many kicked on with this aim in mind during this fledgling event.”
Wow!! Thank you Runners World and thank you guys for helping us achieve these accolades!! We feel a little bit chuffed!
