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!
A big thank you to all involved in the organisation and marshalling of The Xtreme Challenge Feb 2012; and well done to all those that took part.
Hi, I just wanted to extend my thanks to everyone at KP Events that was involved in yesterday’s Xtreme Challenge. This was my first obstacle race, I really enjoyed the course, the effort involved in laying it was obvious. The atmosphere was terrific, and the snow and ice added a whole extra dimension, it was a memorable day indeed. I will definitely be back next time! Joe Sawyer

Very well done to all those involved in the Lichfield Half Marathon. A really great event and very well organised. Very professional with excellent prizes. I was lucky enough to win it this year and would certainly recommend it to others. Patrick Stuart, Mens Winner 2011 (pictured right)
