So, as we emerge blinking in the light from the darkness of lockdown some of you will be thinking about entering events once again.
Here’s one that might be good to ease yourself back into it. Birmingham Running Festival on Sunday 16th May. Options for 5K, 10K or half marathon depending on where you’re currently at. It’s in Sutton Park so not far to travel and, I think, it always feels safer on ‘home turf’.
I’m posting this on a Friday evening thinking of you a couple of gins / beers / glasses of wine into the weekend, seeing this and thinking “Oh yes I might give that a try and get myself back into it!”
One word of caution! The route is the trusty old 5K loop in Sutton Park on the roads. Personally, while I can manage this once, or twice at a push, the half marathon run will be four loops so beware!
Comment below if you enter this or anything else you think might be of interest to the group and I’ll share.
