Wolverhampton Half Marathon, Sunday 3rd September 2017 Print

Katie and I took part in the Wolverhampton Half Marathon today (3.9.17). It was the 20th anniversary of the event which was an added bonus too. Luckily the weather turned out perfect for us as it was cooler with a nice cooling drizzle too which made running much more bearable. The course isn't the most scenic but there was a nice part along the canal and the residents whose estates we invaded were keen to cheer us on. It is an undulating course but the hills aren't too horrific. It was very well-organised too as there was a marathon, half-marathon and 10k event plus a cycle race all going on at the same time so the marshals did very well. We both really enjoyed the event and I was very pleased to come first in my age category. I think we both would recommend it and the Greggs goody bag at the end did the trick!

Ballater 10, Sunday 30th July 2017 Print

Perhaps a little far away for most, but a wonderful place to run.

Where you may ask, well a quick Google map check shows a round trip from the Fox Hollies clubhouse of 816 miles so perhaps a little far for a day trip, however if you happen to be holidaying in the Cairngorms or visiting friends at nearby Balmoral for the weekend of this race I can strongly recommend. Ballater is a very pretty village or maybe a small town situated on the river Dee, and the race mainly on quiet roads, although a couple of miles were on forest roads, weaves it way alongside a couple of rivers, through forested areas, in stunningly beautiful countryside. A couple of short off road diversions (as some roads were washed away in the floods of 2015 and are not yet repaired) added to the challenge. Quite a late start for a race (midday) but given the rural nature of this part of Aberdeenshire I guess that is to allow sufficient time for participants to arrive.

The event was organised by local club Deeside runners and was well marshalled and organised. Personally I really enjoyed this event, perhaps could have gone somewhat faster, but gawping at all the gorgeous countryside as I ran is perhaps not the best single minded focus.

222 runners, a mixture of local clubs and a few visitors from further afield including the winner from Poland, plus non club participants, prizes for the top three in each gender and age category of beer, cheese (or both for the first).

Sphinx Summer 5, Memorial Park, Coventry, Wednesday 14th June 2017 Print

Another in a packed calender of WRRL events in June. The warmth on the night won't have been to manys liking but the event is always friendly and well organised. Even in the heat, Andrew Wadsworth was only a second or so off a PB whilst Emma and Barry showed improvements since the Ryton Pools 5 miler a couple of weeks ago. And did I mention there was free cake at the end ?

Worcester Pitchcroft 10K, Sunday 11th June 2017 Print

Andrew Wadsworth writes >>

This is one event I have had in mind to do for a couple of years, usually it seems to clash with other races, this year being no exception with the Two Castles and the Aldridge 10K on the same day!. I'd done a Worcester AC organised event about a month ago, so was confident it would be very well organised occasion.


The race is named after the park in which Worcester racecourse is based, and for 80% of the time follows a well paved path around the racetrack and alongside the river. The course can only be described as pancake flat, oval shaped, apart from couple of 90 degree turns, and about 3200m per lap, so just over three laps. Perhaps not the most technically challenging 10k race ever but certainly a quick one.

Loads of marshalled parking and facilities provided within the centre of the racecourse, plus a terraced stand for spectators to watch the action which meant great support each time the grandstand was passed, Probably one of the most attractive medals I have received provided at the end, showing Worcester cathedral in great detail.

162 runners on the day, in slightly windy conditions the Sparkhill runners finished as below

Would recommend this race especially if you want to test how fast you can complete a 10k, I managed a PB so no complaints here!
