TROLLOPE REPEATS FRADLEY 10K TRIUMPH
Lichfield athlete and Lichfield Running Club member James Trollope repeated his 2011 win at today’s Florette Fradley 10k (picture top left). A near 1,000 strong field braved the cold but dry conditions and Trollope immediately headed the pack from the gun and swooped home in an excellent time of 32:20, slower than his 2011 time of 30:50, followed home by Matthew Missen in 33:11 with Aaron Brown (Cannock and Stafford AC) 3rd home in 33:14.
First female home was Kim Fawke-Williams of Centurion RC (pictured top right) in a fast time of 35:53 which saw her finish a commendable 12th overall, 2nd female was Joanna Simpson (Team Florette) in 36:38 and 3rd was Linda Howell (Bournville Harriers) in 39:14
A feature for the event this year was a contingent of over 20 runners from sponsors Florette and their Team Florette (pictured below centre) with Chadi Amoun finishing overall 11th and Joanna Simpson finishing 2nd female home; showing real commitment from a sponsor’s team.
Kevin Wilson of organisers KP Events was delighted with the outcome on the day: “There was a fantastic turnout today, a really big number of runners on a cold day and friendly atmosphere being created, well done to everyone involved and massive congratulations to Team Florette!”
