The Tamworth 10k Oct 13th 2013
We reintroduced the Tamworth 10k with a new scenic route in October 2011 to many complimentary comments about how good the new route was. This year’s race will start and finish in the beautiful grounds surrounding Tamworth Castle and will wind its way through the grounds out into the town, then follow a canal section in Fazeley, before returning to the Castle Grounds. More info coming soon.
Event starts in 4 months, 18 days, 20 hours, 28 minutes, 30 seconds
£16 standard Entry, £14 Club Member.
In November we’ll be holding our 4th 10k off-road race at Kingsbury Water Park – a beautiful venue belonging to Warwickshire County Council situated in the beautiful Warwickshire countryside between Tamworth and Sutton Coldfield.
Event starts in 5 months, 15 days, 20 hours, 28 minutes, 30 seconds
You can Enter Online for the Kingsbury Water Park 10K Now.
£16 standard Entry, £14 Club Runner.
The 10k is an approximate distance due to the nature of the course and is a two lap race following a route that is mainly off road through magnificent scenery. Two laps of footpaths, grass tracks and a short tarmac section twisting around the lakes and pools of the water park, with a section alongside the river. Race start time is 10.30am.
The Virgin Active World’s Shortest Fun Run World Record Attempt held today (Monday May 6th) around the UK’s smallest park – Princes Park in Burntwood, attracted close to 400 people to take part and complete the 55 strides around the circumference in times as quickly as 7 seconds and as slow as 56 seconds, all in aid of The We Love Lichfield Fund.
The one-off event created a lot of interest from a wide audience of people as Kevin Wilson of organisers KP Events explains:
“This idea came out of a notion that where could we stage a fun run that everyone, irrespective age, ability or standard, could take part in; and the idea to run it around the UK’s smallest park was born. We have engaged with our new friends in Portland Oregon, home of the World’s smallest park, Mill Ends Park in Portland, which we call a flowerpot but they insist, as Guinness World Records recognise it – as a park, therefore it is a park. The transatlantic banter has been hugely entertaining.
We now have the job of convincing Guinness World Records that we have set a new record and 400 people, from age 3 months to 93, from pushchair bound to wheelchair bound, from doctor to teacher to secretary to waiter to long distance lorry driver to nanny to pet poodle – have had a bunch of fun setting it!
The weather was perfect, Christ Church next door to the Park threw open its doors to provide refreshments for the crowd and spectators clapped, chanted, whooped and sang to create a fantastic atmosphere, even encouraging 3 tortoises from a house opposite the park to have their own mini fun run!!
News from Guinness will come in a few weeks; they may or may not recognise the World’s shortest fun run at Princes Park, but much fun was had in the attempt and a good amount of money raised for a good cause.

ALLINSON A WINNER BORN AND BREAD
Leicester Corinthian AC’s Daniel Allinson stormed to a straightforward win of the 3rd Waitrose Lichfield Half Marathon today in a gun to tape victory that saw him come home in a impressive 1:12:26. Locals were impressed when Lichfield running Club’s man in form Richard O’Sullivan flew the flag for the city by coming home second in a good time of 1:18:53 followed in third place by BRAT Club’s Brendan Fitzpatrick in 1:19:35. First female home was Spa Striders Jo Kirby in 1:31:24.
Kevin Wilson of organisers KP Events was pleased with how the event had gone: “Once again fantastic weather shone on the event literally, the temperature probably ideal and a cooling breeze to boot. Crowds round the route were bigger than ever especially in Whittington, Fradley and the finish on Stowe Field saw several hundred people turn out to cheer runners home, a great event for the city and the area, bigger and better in 2014″
Approx 20 Soldiers from the Mercian Regiment (formerly 1st Battalion The Staffordshire Regiment) took part and have raised at least £2000 for their charity. The Mercian Regiment are to receive New Colours in a ceremony on the 6th June in Worcester. See full story.
