RIP Steve Sear

We are extremely sad to report the passing of former member Steve Sear

He came to the sport in his late 30s but made a substantial impact on the local racing scene. He raced frequently, particularly over 5-10 miles, and would regularly clock low 31 minutes for 10K and 51 minutes for 10 miles. Just prior to his retirement from the sport aged 44 he ran 31.07 for 10,000m. Steve's brother John, some years younger, was equally talented and ran sub9 for 3000m steeplechase.

England U15 5K Road Champs

Six of our Under 15s made the trip to Sutton Park, Birmingham, for the England Under 15 5k Road Race Champs being staged for the first time before the famous Men's 12-Stage and Women's 6-Stage National Relays.

On this occasion, the weather was kind to our athletes, with it being slightly warmer than of late and the sun shining.
