 I'm trying to find out about a race in Lichfield, which I think is organised by the army & involves, doing 10k over pretty challenging terrain.

I thought it was this one but it isn't. Can anyone help?

Thanks John

Hi John

 The Lichfield 10K is a road race and takes in a couple of hills, but I would not describe it as pretty Challenging Terrain.

 We do have Whittington Barracks just outside Lichfield, but it is changing its role and is virtually deserted at present.  There was a tough 10K race organised in January a few years ago.  That was off road and a challenging course.  It was over MOD property but organised locally.  I think they had it for a couple of years and has not been run since.

I do not know of any other event that fits your description.

Yep, I'm in along with 14 other people from work!  Looking forward to it as I haven't run it for a couple of years!

The best thing to do is to contact the organiser tomorrow and ask how many spaces are left.

There have beem rumours that the race is cancelled because of the weather. This is not true. We go ahead as planned. Entries are still available on the day from 9 o'clock. (Limit is 1000 and we're up to 740 as of now). Apparently another race has been called off near Derby so there might be an increased demand so best not to leave it until the last minute.

Entries are up this year and there's only one entrance to the on site car park so leave plenty of time. We're assured that the car park has coped with the weather but if there's loads of rain overnight, who knows !!

Ideal conditions today for my first run in a long time.  Well organised, marshalled and a challenging course.  Realise I have some serious training to do to get ready for the Brum half.  T-shirt was certainly better last year
