Lichfield Half Marathon

The Lichfield Half Marathon will take place on Sunday 6th May 2018 at 10:30am. This is the eighth year it has been staged and the event has quickly built up a reputation among runners that it now attracts in excess of 1500 competitors. It is located in the historic market city of Lichfield, famous for its three spired cathedral and Dr Johnson’s birthplace (author of the first English dictionary). It was also home to Erasmus Darwin, a physician, inventor and poet who postulated theories of evolution which were later taken on by his famous grandson, Charles Darwin. Lichfield retains an unspoilt quality with many listed buildings leaving a Georgian legacy. The city is located 16 miles north of Birmingham and easily accessible via the M6 Toll and A38. The Lichfield Half Marathon will start from playing fields in front of King Edward VI School, turn left on to the A51 and proceed along Tamworth Road. The route will take runners towards and through Whittington and then on through rural roads past the outskirts of Fradley, before heading back towards Lichfield via Netherstowe and finally ending at Stowe Fields which is situated between Stowe Pool and the Cathedral. The first part of the route (along A51 to Whittington Barracks) will be closed to traffic. The remainder of the route is along quiet country lanes but marshalls will patrol each stage of the route guiding competitors and ensuring traffic is controlled. The first three runners of the Ladies and Gents races will be presented with trophies. Every finisher will be presented with a medal showing their participation in the Lichfield Half Marathon along with a goody bag containing water, energy bar and a piece of fruit. Refreshment stations will situated at several places around the course. The race will use chip timings.

Run, Heifer, Run! Virtual Race

What is a virtual race? A virtual race is a race that can be run at any location. You can walk, use the treadmill, run outside, or participate in another race. You can run your race at YOUR PACE whenever and wherever you like. A virtual race can be run at any venue - you can walk, jog, run the distance of your choice. We believe in the honor system, so you won't have to provide proof of your walk or run. However, we'd LOVE to see your race day/week photos ... you can share them across social media using "#RHRSuttonPark10k". All race participants receive a bib, medal, and optional race tshirt

Hawkstone Colour Run in partnership with Hope House

Get ready for the happiest 3K you'll ever walk, dance or run. The run is a colour race that celebrates healthiness, happiness, individuality, and giving back to the community while experiencing the uniqueness of the Hawkstone Park Follies. The Colour Run is a three-kilometre, un-timed race in which participants are doused from head to toe in different colours at each kilometre. Chance to visit the Hawkstone Park Follies with all the family. Refreshments available on the day. No dogs are allowed to take part in the run but can come and spectate. Hope House are here for children who are affected by conditions so serious that they’re not expected to live longer than early adulthood. We’re here to help them enjoy the best possible quality of life both emotionally and practically. We’re here throughout the lifetime of their child - and often well beyond - with specialist nursing care, counselling support, empathy & understanding. Our dedicated teams work at Hope House & Tŷ Gobaith, in the family’s own home and within local communities. As a registered charity, we need to raise over £6 million this year. That’s well over £100,000 every week to make sure we can carry on being here for all the children and families who need us in Shropshire, Cheshire, Mid and North Wales. We will email you two weeks prior to the event to confirm all the details about the day. The T-Shirt and glasses will be available when you register and your medal & bottle of water will be given to you at the finish line. If you would like to raise money for Hope House then please set up a just giving page at www.justgiving.co.uk or alternatively if you would like an official Hope House sponsor form for this event, please email fundraising@hopehouse.org.uk or phone 01691 671671.

SJT Whitchurch (Shropshire) 10K

Welcome to the 3rd Sir John Talbot’s Whitchurch 10K Road Race...still can't believe we are on year 3 already! We are grateful for the ongoing generous support provided by Grocontinental, who are the headline race sponsors for this event which is celebrating its third year. The race has a full UKA licence. Starting and finishing at Sir John Talbot’s School, the course is mainly flat but we have incorporated some short hills just to keep you a little challenged! It is confined to roads within the boundaries of our historic Market Town. The Town centre, with its half-timbered buildings, bustling pubs and the imposing Georgian Grade 1 listed St Alkmund’s Church will form part of the course, where we hope the residents of the Town and visitors alike, will congregate to shout, cheer and encourage all runners.The course has been finalised and is available via http://www.sirjohntalbots.co.uk/sjt-10k/ and the Sir John Talbot's School Whitchurch 10K Facebook page. It will be included in the course programme, a copy of which will be given to all runners on race day together with their race number. There will be one water station on the course with additional water available to runners at the finish. Should the weather be particularly hot on the day, additional water stations may be added.
