BIDDELL BLASTS TO TAMWORTH 10k VICTORY

Lloyd BIDDELL (362) of Mercia Fell Runners stormed home in a new course record time of 31:48 at the Tamworth 10k (October 7th) Castle Grounds in the town, the start/finish venue, was really buzzing on a cool but fine early Autumn day. 2nd place went to Tamworth AC’s Sylvain Letendart (499) in 33:55 with Andrew Wood (511) in third at 34:46.

First female was Emma Peel (687) of Peel Running Club who finished 14th overall in a very quick 38:08 followed by Rachel Burchell (622) in 38:39 with Olivia Harris (524) third in 40:38.

The race in aid of local charity the Stan Bowley Trust saw a record entry for the third year running which delighted Kevin Wilson of organisers KP Events; “Fantastic event today, perfect conditions meant lots of fast times on the flat scenic route, and plenty of smiles at the finish. Brilliant stuff!”

NEWS - Worlds Shortest Fun Run - Burntwood

The 3rd annual World’s Shortest Fun Run around the UK’s smallest park took place in Burntwood (Sunday September 9th) at Princes Park and scores of runners, many fun run first timers, of all ages (6 months to 84) all abilities (none to very little) plenty of fancy dress and zany costumes, dogs of all breeds and colours, babies aplenty too.

Kevin Wilson of organisers KP Events said the day was a roaring success; “It was a fantastic late summers day, the atmosphere was incredible, so much fun and miles of smiles on show. Our event partners Burntwood Town Council helped make it a great event and we’d like to make it an annual event and grow it and convince the Guinness Book of Records to recognise it as a proper World record attempt!”
