THE RUNDOWN – 8TH MAY: BIRMINGHAM HALF MARATHON & 10K & PARKRUN

Birmingham Half Marathon & 10k 

After Saturday’s down pours, the sun shone down for Sunday’s Birmingham HM and 10k races, which saw a big contingent of K&D runners take on the new courses (reported as “somewhat undulating”). First back for K&D and 17th overall was Matt Hipwell in an excellent time of 1 hour and 16 minutes, closely followed by George de Bolla in 1 hour 18 minutes. Greg Turner, David Carbutt and Rob Ambrose also came in under the 90-minute mark. Kate Leeson was first K&D lady in a new PB time of 1 hour 39 mins, closely followed by Kirsty Wise in 1 hour 41 mins.

Meanwhile in the 10k event, Martin Hancock was first K&D runner home in a  time of 48 mins, just 1 second ahead of Caroline Park (1st K&D lady back).
