Oldbury 10 Mile race – a big thank you to all our helpers

On behalf of Race Director Ros Rowland and myself we would like to thank all the Club Members who helped out today on the Oldbury 10 Mile race.  Despite it being a perfect day for running we had 29 ‘no-shows’ out of a total of 163 who had entered leaving 134 who started. For those at the start we had an excellently well observed 2 minutes silence in common with other sporting events over this weekend.

A fast race saw 13 runners going sub 60 mins including a Bristol & West Woman for the first time in quite a few years. All the runners appeared very pleased with the course, the marshals, and the general organisation.  An example of a typical comment below….

“Thanks for todays race at Oldbury.  I wanted to send a huge thank you for a really well ran race and the wonderful marshals. Please pass on a big thank you to all of them … was lovely to have so many on the course and the smiley encouraging shout outs


Thanks everybody, we now move on to the Riverbank Rollick scheduled for Sun 15th January 2023.
