Wythall and Hollywood Fun Run, Sun 14th July 2013 Print
Hi I am on the organising committee for the Wythall and Hollywood Fun Run.

We are inviting all athletics and running clubs to enter the "Running Club Challenge" at this year's event. This is a fun opportunity to compete against your fellow clubs in a team challenge for a £200 prize!

This is now our fourth year and this time we've added a 10k (2 lap) race to the existing 5k and 1.5k Fun Run. Both the 10k and 5k are on closed roads around the countryside of Wythall. The running club challenge will be based on the 10k race with a £200 prize going to the club whose first 5 runners home have the fastest combined time.

In addition to the club challenge we also have the individual runner prizes of £75 (1st), £50 (2nd), £30 (3rd) & £50 (1st under 17yrs) for the 10k (male and female prizes) and £40 (1st), £25 (2nd), £15 (3rd) & £25 (1st under 17yrs) for the 5k.

The date this year is the 14th July (note: later than last year) with a start time of 9:15 for the 10k and 5k. We would much appreciate if you could mention the event and date to any of your members who may be interested and we would be delighted if you could send a team along.

We are aware that most running clubs already have a calendar of events for most weekends. But if we don't clash with a pre-arranged event, or if anyone is looking for an alternative local race - everyone is welcome. We even do on-the-day entry for that last minute change of plan.

Please see our website for more details

Running in Romania Print

Please note the club in no way endorses or otherwise this activity but are passing on the information which some members may find interesting.

From Lucy Szymonski :

My husband and I set up Running With The Bears, arranging running holidays to Romania, after having run several mountain races in the country and having fallen completely in love with the place. We are Londoners and what appealed to us were the ginormous open spaces with the most incredible scenery, which can be enjoyed in the most spectacular of weather conditions.

Little did we realise that we would end up moving here and now we have the opportunity to run in a myriad of events pretty much all year round and train in valleys, pastures, slopes and gorges that we used to dream of.

Running With The Bears enables anyone with a passion for off-road running, whatever their ability, to take part in races of all lengths all over Romania, or to enjoy a tailor-made running holiday at our base of Moieciu de Sus in the Bucegi Mountains.

Please take a look at our website for inspiration. There are many, many more events taking place across Romania about which we can advise, and around which we can organise your Romanian running experience.

It's truly the most incredible country and we are the only UK-based company organising such trips to Romania.

We're here to answer your queries. Please let me know if you don't want to hear from Running With The Bears again.

Kind regards Lucy Szymonski

Director Running With The Bears

RAF Shawbury 10km run 07 Jul 13 Print

Royal Air Force Shawbury are proud to announce the inaugural RAF Shawbury 10km race on Sunday 7th July 2013 at 1100.

The event will be held on the airfield which is home to all basic UK military helicopter flying training. We believe this offers a unique opportunity to run on an active military airfield and to have the chance to set a personal best on its impeccable running surface. Weather permitting, to accompany the day we are also delighted to announce a parachute display from the RAF Falcons and also a flypast from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight’s Dakota. With other stalls and entertainment, it is set to be a great day for both athletes and families. 

For your convenience I have attached a digital poster to help advertise the event or, if you prefer, you can email me your address whereupon I will send you hard copies to distribute around your clubs.

Race entries may be completed online with the closing date set at 28 Jun 13.

If you or any of your members have any questions regarding the event please contact me as soon as possible.I look forward to seeing you all on what promises to be a unique day.
