What a pleasant warm and sunny Sunday morning for the 22nd Hydro sponsored LA5 and Fun Run.
As in previous years there were a lot of our regulars taking part and also some new faces that we hope to see again in the future. We are always glad to see the support from local clubs, running groups and unattached runners, but it is also very pleasing to see runners from clubs further afield such as Notts AC, Hinckley RC, Wrekin and Halesowen AC.
As always we will be making donations to three charities. Eloise and Lorreta from Birmingham Children’s Hospital, one of our nominated charities raised £49.79 on the day. Lorreta started the races and later on along with Eloise presented the prizes.
The LA5 always produces some good times and this year was no exception, the LA5 open prize winners were –
- 1st lady Bethan Padbury Hinckley Running Club 34 mins 10 secs
- 2nd lady Nicola Ross West Bromwich Harriers 37 mins 05 secs
- 1st man Oliver Harradence RSCAC 27 mins 25 secs
- 2nd man Shaun Evans RSCAC 27 mins 52 secs
Congratulations to all our prize winners.
Thank you to all competitors in both events and also a big thank you to all the volunteers that turned out to help on the day.
