The Tamworth 10k will be held on the Sunday the 29th Oct 2023 and will start and finish in the beautiful grounds surrounding Tamworth Castle and will wind its way through the grounds and out into the town, then follow a canal section in Fazeley, before returning to the Castle Grounds.
The Tamworth 10k was voted 4th best 10k in the UK by Runners World in 2013 as its scenic but mainly flat 5k loop course takes in some of the town’s best scenery with its start and finish set in the popular Castle Grounds leisure facility with its gardens, sports amenities, walkways, and café.
The 1st Oct 23 Lichfield Half-Marathon has had to be cancelled.
The event business as a whole has suffered terribly with many similar companies going out of business, including lots of our suppliers. Taking with them lots of runners entry fee’s with no chance of a refund.
In 2022 we made the decision to go ahead with the Lichfield Half Marathon event though we knew we were going to lose thousands of pounds due to lower entry levels and increased logistic costs. But we wanted to bring our loyal participants a well needed event.
Things have improved and the Tamworth 10k and the iconic Fradley 10k were good entry numbers in 2022. However with less than seven weeks to go until the 2023 Lichfield Half Marathon entries are again very low and we are unable to sustain a similar financial loss again, or KP Events will be unable to continue. So unfortunately I have to inform you that the 2023 Lichfield Half Marathon will not take place this year.
But it’s not all bad news!! We would like to make you a very special offer. The entry fee for the Lichfield Half Marathon was £30.00. The combined entry fees for the Tamworth 10k and the Fradley 10k are £54.00, so we would like to transfer your entry to both of these races for you at no extra cost to you.
If you are already entered in to either of these races then we will of course offer you a refund instead. We hope all runners will take up this fabulous offer, which will allow us to stage these two great events for you, and continue as a business.
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.
In the men’s 10k the winner was David Carbutt in 39:12, 2nd was Simon Heard in 40:00 and 3rd Richard Charlton. Women’s 10k winner was Heather-Leigh Davis in 46:14, second Vicki Holme 52:43 and third place Amber Rogers 53:01. 5k Men: 1st Marc Turner, 2nd Cameron Forryan and 3rd place Richard White. Women’s 5k was Ania Simcox, 2nd Jenifer Bradshaw and third place Jenny Reeve.
