Around 100 runners joined us for our 10k and 5k fun run around Pelsall. As a result of all of the entries we’ve been able to raise £500 for St Gile’s Hospice, and £200 for the local Air Cadets. On the day we had help from the Air Cadets and an enormous number of volunteers from Mid-Counties Co-Operative – without their help we would not have been able to stage the event.
Our Second Pelsall Event
This was the second time we’d run this event, following the inaugural run back in 2014. Hopefully it will become an annual event.
On the day, the men’s race was won by Luke Bottimer (36:16) with the ladies’ race won by Leonie Balter (37:00). Our partner organisation who handle the run and entries are CAMBA, and a full list of results is available on their website.
We had 30 helpers from Mid-Counties co-operative who marshaled large parts of the route for us. The local air cadets were also on hand to help with water stations and other duties.
We’d also like to thank our first aid helpers too. All of these people gave up their time to help our members and helpers put on the event.
A further thank you goes to the Lily Pot, who donated the fantastic bouquets for our winners. They were magnificent.
Next Year's Event
Please note there will be no race in 2017.
We may be returning in 2018. Apologies for any inconvenience.
There are a large number of pictures taken at the event available on our Facebook page. Feel free to share!
