Hi Angie.

I did it last year and from what I remember it was about a 5-10 minute walk back to the car parking area.

It starts at the leisure centre and then finishes right inside the city centre.

There was a shuttle bus than takes you back to the start.

I did it last year and it was a fairly easy course, down hill for first third, then flat, then slight incline for the last.

I'll be doing it again this year.

You should do it - I really enjoyed it.

Oh yeah, don't worry about walking back to the car on your own, it was pretty busy last year and there were alot of people walking that direction.

Ah, i'm very new to running and, thanks to this thread, now understand what point to point means! This looks like a nice event, doing my first half (Bath) in March and was looking for another...think payday may see me book up too! Look forward to seeing you all there.

06/05/2012 at 15:23
Anyone had there time yet? Is it right?

we ran Lichfield HM today for the first time in 2:20, i'll settle nicely for that considering allowing for some of the road surfaces and moderate undulations and grass finish...we had a nice walk back from the finish to our car at start,

i thought the event was superb, and i duely told them so before i left as well  

06/05/2012 at 16:40

Yes. It was lovely to see you both there today.


I definitely want to do that one again next year. A good race.

Results are on stuweb website, the time they've given me is 22 seconds slower than what i clocked on my watch. It still gives me a PB which i'm delighted with but others maybe denied, I'd expect a couple of seconds either way but their margin of difference really is vast.

06/05/2012 at 19:27
Mine is about 17 seconds out, not to fussed, but i think they had the chip and gun times the wrong way round when I looked which was confusing me.
