The RUNdown – 15th AUGUST: Solihull Half Marathon & 10k & parkrun

Solihull Half Marathon & 1ok

Sunday saw the biggest local race in almost 2 years, with over 1200 runners taking to the local roads – the route taking them right through the centre of Knowle and Dorridge! – as part of the Solihull Half Marathon and 10k events. 38 K&D Runners dusted off their green and gold vests and achieved some excellent results: Gareth Wainright was 1st back for K&D, coming 9th overall, with Jane Evans 1st K&D lady back and 5th lady overall (2nd in Age Cat). Great runs also from Paul Bentley (1st in Age Cat), Amanda O’Leary (2nd in Age Cat) and a half marathon PB for Adeba Jama. In the 10k race, Sara Rowell was 1st back for K&D, and also 1st in her Age Cat, and also a 1st in Age Cat for Penelope Garner. Full results for both distances are below, as are a selection of photos (thanks Sarah Connors!)
