Thank you to everyone who came along to take part in the 2016 Black Country Road Run in Halesowen town centre on Sunday 3rd July.
The 2016 10k course timings are available to view at http://www.stuweb.co.uk/race/181/ and CONGRATULATIONS go to our two winners in the 10k Race.
STUART HAWKES with a time of 34 mins 27 seconds
LEONIE BALTER who completed her run in 38 mins 24 mins
Leonie also managed to beat the course record set by last year’s winner in the Female category to win an extra £50 – so Congratulations for that Leonie and well done to you!
This event is organised by the Rotary Club of Halesowen & Rowley Regis and each year we hope that runners will help us to raise lots of money for charity. If you are one of those collecting sponsorship money please don’t forget to let us know how much money you’ve raised so that we can add that to our overall total. Last year you helped us to raise over £27,000 for various charities and good causes, so let’s do our best to try and beat that!
It was a pleasure to see so many charities being represented on the day. We appreciate all of your support and we hope to see many more charities become involved in the future.
We would also like to thank all of our fantastic volunteers who help us to make the day such a success - The Zion Church Halesowen, West Midlands 4x4 Response, Midlands Bike Marshals, Halesowen & RR Rotary Club members, The Inner Wheel Club of Halesowen, members of the Holy Trinity Church Old Hill and many many more individuals who give up their own time to offer their support.
Thanks also go to Chris Pearson, our Race Director, and all of his team from Cobra Running Club.
And thank you to all of our event sponsors, especially our three main sponsors for 2016 - The Big Pet Store Halesowen, mFortune Halesowen & CSCM IT Solutions - and finally of course to Dudley council for managing the road closures to ensure the safety and enjoyment of all our runners.
So, whether you were running, walking, marshalling, or purely came along as a spectator, we hope you enjoyed the day as much as we did and we look forward to seeing you all again next year.
Good Luck with your fundraising!
