Trafford AC’s Tom Charles came home in first place at the Florette Fradley 10k (Sun March 8th) sprinting his way around the 2 lap course on a dry blustery day in a time of 32:07.

First female home was Beth Tabor in 39:31 with Natalie Lawrence second in 39:50 and Marie Matthews (Kenilworth Runners) third in 39:57.
Charles was delighted with his victory: “I enjoyed the race today my first time at FRADLEY and easy to see why it’s so popular!! Well organised and the course is flat inviting a PB and I was pleased with my time today. Like to be back to defend next year!!”
The Florette Fradley 10K is a popular run and attracts around 1,000 entrants each year. Covering flat, country roads, it’s a great event for beginners and pros alike. The Fradley 10k has previously been nominated in the National Running Awards for the best 10k race for personal best times.
It’s with great regret that KP Events announce that this year’s Solihull Half Marathon on Sunday April 5th has been cancelled.
Since the event first took place in 2016, numbers participating have been falling steadily and event costs, notably for increasing use of traffic management systems to ensure a safe environment for runners, have risen steeply.
This year we have reached a position where the commercial viability of the event is such that we have no choice but to cancel the event and ensure we can contact all event partners, suppliers and participants with sufficient time to consider alternative arrangements.
KP Events will transfer all runner registrations to the Lichfield Half Marathon on Sunday May 10th this year.
Anyone who has already entered the Lichfield Half Marathon or would like a refund should contact Race Director Paul Griffin at email@example.com.
KP Events is also in active discussions with Solihull Leisure Services and Blythe Valley Business Park to organise another running event in the Borough in 2021.
The preferred option is to offer a traffic-free event either off-road or utilising the excellent parks that are in the Borough.
KP Events policy going forward is to concentrate on its portfolio of established existing on road events and look at only off-road new events.
We apologise wholeheartedly to our loyal KP Events customers and partners for having to take this action.
KP Events will continue to offer running events that you want to take part in.
Lichfield’s very own Festive Santa Dash 8th Dec took place in aid of local charity Shining Stars set up by Charlotte Aspley to provide nightclub experiences for adults with learning difficulties.
