For obvious reasons the WRRL season has not started at all yet. The latest confirmed cancellations are the Sphinx and Northbrook races. Balsall Common RC are planning to hold their race if at all possible. There is a 5k and 10k on 20th September. Registration now open. The race is in aid of the Lily Mae Foundation.
England Athletics has partnered with ‘OpenTrack’ to support Virtual Races on their platform for all affiliated clubs and run groups. Watch this space !!!
The photo shows Simon Kinson of Leamington C&AC with Robert Pinton of Solihull&SmallHeath who, like Nick, Brian, Pat&Eddie in the previous blog, have served the County for most or all of this century. Its a pleasure to recognise people who have shown so much support for the County and its athletes and for so long.
The photo shows Nick Price of the BRAT club, Brian Higson of RSCAC and Pat and Eddie Cockayn of Birchfield Harriers with an award presented by Becky Freeman of Solihull&SmallHeath AC (immediate Past President of WCAA) which recognises their exceptional service to the County. They have served as Cross Country team managers at the Inter County Championships for almost or over 20 years. Truly the backbone of the sport.
