Writeup – The Lichfield Dash 20th Aug 2016

O’BRIEN BREEZES TO DASH TITLE

Cannock & Stafford AC’s Welsh 800m international James O’Brien braved the near autumnal weather at Saturday’s (August 20th) Lichfield Dash round Cathedral Close to closely beat Tamworth AC’s promising 400m athlete Tom Randolph to win the Dash crown and beat the 12 noon chimes to join the small band of top athletes who achieved both since the event started in 1998.

O’Brien, 19, took a quick line advantage right from the outset and as he hit the back straight in the The Close and the strong wind he battled up the home lap and rounded the final bend to take the cheers of the crowd gathered to welcome back Lichfield’s most unique sporting occasion.

Held for the first time since Olympic year 2012, the return of the Dash is a triumph for Dash founder Kevin Wilson of organisers KP Events and he was pleased to see the event back in its spiritual home; “The dash is really really special to this city and on such a horrible ‘summers’ day the turnout for all the support events for kids, the wonderfully quirky Lichwheel’d and their madcap bikes and cycles and the fantastic atmosphere on the line for the main dash made it all worthwhile. Let’s hope it’s back to stay.”

In the Dash Elite Mile Tamworth AC’s Bikram Singh beat KP Events ambassador Phil Clamp into second place.

lichfield-dash

This Saturday marks the final day of athletics at the Rio Olympic Games so it’s fitting that the Lichfield Dash sponsored by St Johns House is back for the first time since the Olympic Torch visited the event in June 2012 and as the city welcomes back its favourite sporting occasion, organisers KP Events have been working to ensure that the morning itself is an entertaining celebration of sporting activities set in the closed to traffic Cathedral Close as everything builds to the conclusion of the Chariots of Fire inspired 12 noon race against time as a field of high class sprinters race each other and the 12 o’clock chimes.
