Stop me if you’ve heard this one before.

We really are one heck of a club aren’t we ?

This past week we’ve had members competing in distances between 100m and 102 miles.

Yep 102 miles. No typo.

We’ve had members competing between ages 11 and soon to be 81.

No typo there either. 70 years. As the American’s say – do the math.

And we’ve had members competing at home and abroad, with Stu George running in the Copenhagen Half marathon and picking up a 90 second PB.

We start off with photos of Reece Yarnold and Jasmine Mothersahw who both had outstanding races in the Worcester City Junior U11 mile race and Balsall Common 5k respectively.

Not to be outdone by the juniors we also had Jamie Hall claiming his inaugural victory in the Warwickshire Road Race League (WRRL) at the Balsall Common 10k, a race that saw Matt Burdus-Cook finish in 2nd place.

We must be doing something right musn’t we?

There is a superb report from Seth Turner on hs 102 mile, I’ll just type that again, 102 mile Cotswold Century Challenge.

Words fail.

We have a few reports on the latest WRRL fixture at Balsall Common where we had another outstanding turn out with many outstanding individual performances.

Stuart George ran a 90 second PB in the Copenhagen Half Marathon despite the organisation leaving a little to be desired according to his report. A great performance and just reward for the hard training I know he had put in for the race.

Kate Barney was another half marathoner, competing in the Lake Vyrnwy Half Marathon as she prepares for the upcoming  Eryri Marathon. Kate managed to secure a 6 minute PB. Well done Kate.

Paula Williams is currently in Pescara – Italy, where she will be competing for GB in the European Masters Athletics Championships. Good luck Paula.

For us mere mortals the T&F season came to a close with the Vets Cup Final last Saturday, an event that saw us finish a credible 4th out of 8 clubs in the ‘A ‘Cup Final.

A couple of weeks prior to that our Midland League T&F team finished agonisingly close to promotion but ultimately missed out but just half a point over the whole season. This was the 3rd successive season that we have just missed out.  Maybe next year…..again.

A huge vote of thanks is due to T&F team managers Hannah Osborne and Mike Sheppard, together with all of our volunteer officials.

If T&F has finished that can only mean one thing….XC is round the corner. Vicky Sharpe has kindly sent through the important dates for the upcoming XC season.

Good luck to our juniors who will be competing in the Sutton Park Relays on Saturday. Unfortunately we have no senior representation but Richard Harrison, the Junior’s Team manager, has managed to assemble no fewer than 9 junior teams who will be able to carry on our strong tradition at this event.

Looking at those teams I can tell you that they are pretty impressive and oozing with talent.

Many thanks to those of you who have sent through reports.

Phew, that was some week. Again

Take care

Worcester City Junior U11 (up to 12 years) 1 mile race

Report – Kirsty Yarnold
It was an early start for Reece Yarnold on Sunday 17th September 2023. He had to to be on the start line for the Worcester City Junior U11 (up to 12 years) 1 mile race starting at 8.45am.

4000 runners descended on the city centre ready to participate in the 1 mile, 3 km, 10k or Half Marathon events.

It was a lovely dry morning as Reece approached the start line where 250 runners were getting ready to participate in the 1 mile and 3 km race together.

As Reece crossed the start line he was in the middle of the pack and he worked his way through the many runners in front to sit at a comfortable pace.

As both races were running together it was very difficult to tell what position Reece was in until the split off point with about 300m to go. The 3 km runners headed over Worcester Bridge and straight up towards the high street whereas the 1 mile hung a left heading towards the finish line below The Hive.

It was at this point Reece realised he was in 4th position, a shift up a gear in pace saw him overtake the 3 in front to lead the race with around 200m to go.

Reece maintained the speed and the distance between himself and the runner in second place, to finish strongly in first place with a time of 6:25 mins.
Jasmine Mothershaw crosses the line. 2nd female junior and 3rd female overall. A magnificent performance Jasmine
Balsall Common 5k

Sue and Jasmine’s race

Report    – Sue Mothershaw

Jasmine and I ran the Balsall Common 5k. This was an amazing event that raises money for the Lily Mae foundation who are a baby loss support charity. 

Jazzy refused to run this race last year as she was still 10 and needed to run with me! 

She was 3rd female overall and 2ndjunior (11-15) Her time was 25:03. 

She was pleased with her 21st place out of 293 runners. 

I finished the race in 109th in 32:26 cheered in by Jazzy just before the 10k finishers.

So, we got an ice cream and enjoyed supporting the other runners.
Well done everyone who took part in the 10k and thank you Phillipa for marshalling.

And the medal he got after.

The Cotswold Century

Report – Seth Turner

Having successfully completed several 50k and 100k races I decided it was time to step up and challenge myself at the 100 mile distance, so in February this year I put my entry in for CWC102 2023.

The Cotswold Century is a 102 mile ultra trail race the length of the Cotswold Way from Chipping Campden to Bath. As it meanders its way Southwest it takes in all the nice viewpoints and the pretty villages in the valleys so it really is very scenic but quite hilly with somewhere over 12,000 feet of climb over the course.

You have 32 hours to complete it with the winners usually coming in around 20 hours.

It is considered a tough race and has a normal DNF rate of over 25%. 

Knowing the northern half of the route quite well and having trained on the hills around Broadway I knew I could put in a decent performance over 50 miles but beyond that would be a compete unknown.

Stepping up to this distance involves many more challenges than just fitness with nutrition, navigation, mental approach and coping with sleep deprivation all having a part to play. 

We set off from just outside the market hall in Campden on Saturday morning in good running conditions, cool for September and a little misty.

As the first miles unfolded I felt good and strong and concentrated on keeping my pace conservative and dialling in my nutrition. Around Hailes Abbey at close to 20 miles I fell into step with another first time 100 mile runner called Nick, who runs for the Tetbury Dolphins. After a bit of chatting we worked out that we had similar racing backgrounds and times and with him having a good knowledge of the last 50 miles of the course we figured by sticking together through the night we could help each other to reach our goal successfully. The idea was to stick together until dawn then see what happened.

The plan worked well and we kept ticking off the miles, stopping at the periodic checkpoints to fuel up and pushing each other up and down the unrelenting hills. At the very scenic Birdlip checkpoint about 40 miles in we were feeling strong and seeing my family who had come out to support us really cheered us on as we headed into the darkness.

By around 70 miles, in the early hours of the morning my companion was starting to struggle. As is often the case with these longer distances I think he was finding it hard to get the required calories into himself and therefore starting to loose energy and becoming a little nauseous and disoriented.

I refused to leave him alone in the dark so I tried to keep his spirits up, chatting away as we fast-hiked the 5k or so to the next checkpoint. After a few minutes sitting Nick decided he was in no condition to continue for the time being so was going to rest an hour or so and see how he felt. I don’t think he knew at that point if he was going to finish or not but as I was still feeling positive and determined and with a quick change of shoes and shirt I left him there and continued on my way.

As the sun came up I felt a lift of spirits as I could feel the finish line coming towards me.

Arriving at the penultimate checkpoint in Cold Ashton I was overjoyed to find not only my wife Yumi there in support but also my trail buddy and club mate Adam Evans who had driven down from Stratford to run the last miles with me.

With 90 miles in my legs at this point I was undoubtedly feeling tired and slowing down somewhat, I was nonetheless determined to get the race done.

Amazingly a couple of miles after leaving the checkpoint a familiar voice came from behind me and my earlier companion Nick appeared, having been rejuvenated by a rest and some food and found a new determination to compete the race.

We decided to run it in together and with painful legs and aching bodies but a real sense of joy and companionship we descended the hills into Bath.

With Adam joining us for the last miles we ran through the lovely Georgian streets, dodging the slightly bemused tourists and arrived at the finish outside the Abbey in a final time of 24 hrs and 28 minutes, claiming a joint 7th place. What a day! 


The men’s race was won by Richard Ellsworth in a second fastest ever time of 19 hrs 55 minutes and the ladies race by Zosia Young in 27 hrs 13 minutes. 


The CWC102 is a superb event on a stunning national trail and was an incredible experience and a journey that I will not forget. The organisers and volunteers were absolutely amazing, positive and encouraging throughout and the spirit of the event as is so often in trail and ultra running, truly life-affirming I recommend it to anyone seeking a challenge and a chance to see what incredible things they are truly capable of.

Jamie’s Race

Report – Jamie Hall

I enjoyed this WRRL fixture last year as it was my highest race position (4th) and my fastest 10k. So, I was hoping for a similar outcome this year. 

With it being two laps, the pre-race discussion was to see who was going to set the pace and to follow the front group for the first lap and that was my plan!

However, as soon as the race started, I got completely carried away and went out hard, so I had to commit to it.

The first 2k was at 5k pace and this helped me to gain a decent lead at the front. I was then able to settle into a more sensible effort at my 10k pace.

I ended up running the rest of the race out on my own but with the course having a few turns and fairly undulating it helped the kilometres to tick by, until the 8th km where the hill just seemed to go on forever. 

With a few 2nd places this year, I was delighted to finally win a road league race.

 I did go for a cool down with some of the SAC crew and on the way back we could hear the announcements of the prize winners. Luckily, it was for the 5k race and I didn’t miss my first presentation race win! That would have been typical.

Matt’s Race and commentary
Report – Matt Burdus-Cook

On Sunday, the Balsall Common 10k and 5k event took place attracting nearly 600 participants. The race has “layers” as it is first and foremost a fundraiser for the Lily Mae Foundation, whilst also being the potentially penultimate fixture in the Warwickshire Road Race League.

So the first layer …

The purpose of the Lily Mae foundation is a very special one, and their website describes them better than I can …

“Not only do we want to support anyone who has suffered the loss of a baby, but we want to raise awareness of how tragically common the loss of a baby is. Most people don’t realise that Stillbirth, Neonatal Death, Miscarriage and Medical Termination devastate the lives of more than 3,500 parents every year. Not only that, the loss of a baby is seen as a taboo subject, so parents are not encouraged to seek the support that they so desperately need. We want to change all that.”

Many individuals completing the event do so in memory of a lost baby or lost babies and as such the race has a poignant feel for some, and is so much more than just a race to many of the participants.

Please do read the information on the website and help the foundation in their aim to raise awareness. https://www.lilymaefoundation.org/about-us

Then the race part …

The race has a mass start with 5k runners completing a single lap and the 10k entrants completing 2.

The course also has a reasonably long “out and back” section which means that you get to see more of your team mates than normal, which is welcome on the continually undulating course.

The 2 most notable performances of the day were as follows … In the 5k, Jasmine Mothershaw was exceptional and finished as 2nd place Junior (and for the record was also 3rd lady overall). In the 10k, Jamie Hall secured his first and thoroughly deserved, open race victory and has also more than certainly secured his place as the Male winner of the Warwickshire Road League.

Daughter Jasmine was joined by Mum Sue in the 5k who finished as 13th Lady.

Seventeen club runners and race walkers completed the 10k and winner Jamie was followed home by Matt Burdus-Cook, Richard Liggatt, Adrian Mason, David Teasdale, Max Ross, Joe Lee, John Raby, Tim Hutchinson, Fin Hutchinson, Susan Hunt, Suzanne Ross, Lisa Lambourn, David Maundrell, Kate Sergent, Paul Hawkins and Gemma Smith.

Susan’s Race

Report – Susan Hunt

Last Sunday saw Lisa Lambourn, Kate Sergent and myself heading off on a road trip to the Balsall Common 10k. 
It was a new event for all of us and the first surprise was the 12 noon start time. 

Luckily it was considerably cooler than the previous weekend (when the temperature came close to the melting point of rock).  There was even a slight chill in the air!
The event was a community fundraiser for the Lily Mae Foundation (who provide bereavement support to families who have lost a baby to Stillbirth, Neonatal Death, Miscarriage or Medical Termination in the West Midlands and Warwickshire). 

It incorporated mini-runs for nursery and primary school aged children and by the time we arrived at the Primary School venue, there were hordes of tiddly kids wearing medals and massive smiles.

There was also a 5k race (juniors and adults) – the 10k being 2 laps of the 5k course.  Both races started together.  10k competitors were categorised (and identified by the colour of their race numbers) as either ‘affiliated’ or not.  
As affiliated runners, we had a rare opportunity to feel important, as we were ushered past the 5k and ‘normal’ 10k entrants and told to assemble at the head of the race. 

This sense of importance was short-lived in my case, once the race was underway and the non-affiliates and juniors came charging past.  Among the junior 5k runners scampering ahead of us was SAC’s own Jasmine Mothershaw, who said a cheery “Hi” as she whizzed past in a flash of yellow.
It was an undulating course, for which all those Greenway and canal towpath training runs were poor preparation and I suspect that I was not the only runner who envied the 5k entrants as they turned off the course to the Finish, while I begrudgingly began my second lap.
One fun feature of the course was a reasonably lengthy out and back section. 

On the first lap it allowed me the chance to wave and shout cheerful encouragement to all my other clubmates – including the SAC elite at the head of the pack.  By the second lap however, the elite had long since finished the race (and possibly were already showered and tucking into their Sunday roast) and the most I could muster was a grunt of acknowledgement at the few familiar faces in the (now spread-out) field.
For the final 2 miles, I found myself running behind a couple of Kenilworth runners – one expertly coaching the other to a target PB time.  I soon tuned into his running commentary and found myself following every eaves-dropped instruction.. “lengthen your stride” on the downhills, “tiptoes and fast cadence” on the uphills.  The constant dialogue was not only useful and encouraging; but also a welcome distraction from the effort as my heartrate approached a frankly foolhardy 180bpm.
I managed to keep pace with my new two best friends (who were doubtless oblivious to my existence) right up until the point that we turned off the course onto the playing field, when they sprinted away to the finish line with youthful abandon.
Having not even glanced at my watch for the duration of the race, it was a happy surprise to stop it as I crossed the line and realised that I’d run my fastest 10k since 2019.  A post-pandemic PB!
Lisa and Kate were equally excited with their results – a PB for Lisa and Kate’s fastest 10k for many moons.
As we basked in post-run euphoria, the results were announced.  Stratford’s Jamie Hall and Matt Burdess-Cook had placed 1st and 2nd which wasn’t too bad a result; but more importantly, Jasmine Mothershaw was 2nd Junior Female in the 5K and she accepted her trophy with the biggest smile of the day.
After a celebratory visit to the coffee van, we headed home (thinking that the day couldn’t get any better) to watch England win the rugby.

As a prolific racer, it made a welcome change to take part in a community charity event – one where the entry fees are contributing to a worthy cause.  The event certainly raised my awareness of the Lily Mae Foundation and it was touching that, as the non-affiliated (charity) prize-winning runners were announced, so was the name of the baby in whose memory they were running.

Similar events that I’ve done recently and would recommend (for their community involvement, charitable cause and family-friendly races) are the Crowle 10k and the Pendock Spring Chicken 10k.

Job done. Stu George crosses the finish line.
Okay it wasn’t cheap but worth every Krone

Copenhagen Half Marathon

Report – Stuart George

When at Junior School in far off Aldridge in the wonderful town of Walsall, we would on occasion have to sing a song.  

“ Wonderful, Wonderful Copenhagen, wonderful Queen of the sea”


( Listening back its amazing social services didn’t get involved)

Being from the lovely landlocked West Mids,I had no idea where this wonderous place was or if it even was real.  Last weekend reality was confirmed as I got to run my first overseas race.

The Copenhagen Half marathon promised a fast course, a cool climate and expensive beer afterwards!!.

Two out of three aint bad as the start time approached it hit a balmy 22 degrees and boy did it feel every single degree and more.  The expensive beer became even more of an incentive!!

Now I need to be clear here I had a great time.  Me and my wife had a wonderful 4 days here and I had a brilliant race and pleasingly I hit a 90 second PB in a finish of 1:26:33.  It was flat fast and had big, yet slightly reserved crowds. 

However, if you happened to be a 1nr 40 minute plus runner the experience was very different. 

25,000 is hell of a lot of people and to get them to where they should be at the start time requires a lot of organisation and judging by some of the scenes somebody forgot to explain that to normally efficient Danes.

Firstly 11:15 seemed a ludicrously late time to start a half marathon for a country with a similar climate to ours there was always a risk it could derail peoples best efforts.

This year they had moved the start and finish to the centre of town and it basically couldn’t cope with the sheer amount of people, never mind the spectators and 20,000 push bikes that appeared too.

5 different start pens all were told they would start at 11:15.  Which clearly couldn’t happen, however, as with so many mass races you have literally thousands of new runners who don’t know this so all got to stand in the mad heat for far longer than was needed.

 At least two pens were left in near midday sun for around 45 minutes. 

Water stations were overwhelmed as people had just gone in any pen that they wanted.  Reports of people having to wait for half a minute to get the cups filled mid race have been told and unfortunately many many people passing out from the heat and effort the race took upon them were to be seen on most corners.

Luckily I had been a keano and got near the front to start so missed much of these frankly dangerous conditions. 

Crowds spilled into the streets, meaning roads were narrowed and the ever present bicycles of Copenhagen provided even more obstacles, with me seeing at least 3 near misses and allegedly two collisions with runners.

Considering this is a well established race and part of the Super Half series ( Cardiff, Lisbon, Valencia and Prague being the other races to be part of this medal series) it’s quite baffling that it failed in so many basics.

These serious issues were also backed up with farcical features, the much-promised free photos and videos show that you get what you pay for.  One photo managed to capture my trailing foot and two didn’t have me in at all. It wouldn’t be so bad if they hadn’t kept emailing me saying how great the photos looked! As you will see here im not the most photogenic of runners anyway 

But back to my race…  The heat was oppressive from the start but the beautiful Scandi architecture provided a lot of shade.

Some smart thinker had also managed to get  some cold waterfalls every few miles which really helped cool you down.

The first 10k went pretty much to plan, I was trying for 1r h26 flat and crossed the half way point pretty much to the second but from 12k on the mental battle really started. 

I hadn’t really experienced this in a half before, normally the legs give up before the mind tells me to slow down. 

I tried as I normally do to think of it one block at a time, breaking it into 5k chunks or smaller but the heat meant I couldn’t convince myself to fall for my own words.  I just knew there was more to come after each chunk. This caused a bit of a slow down but I really dug in to ensure my last k was my fastest and crossed the line exhausted but very happy especially as I had really had to ignore my brain.

The problems I listed didn’t detract from my day or weekend but it was a shame to read so many people who had had their experienced soured. 

I am sure this will all be corrected for next year’s edition and it was all just an amalgamation of the race start and finished being moved, plus the unseasonably hot weather but when you allow spectators and bikes into the start area and you don’t enforce the pens properly what else is going to happen!!

I would go back as the city truly is an oasis of calm ( except race day) and brilliant food  is found on every corner but I hope for all the runners that whoever made that call to get the cold water showers in gets to organise the start of the race next year.

Okay with views like this I can see the attraction.

Lake Vyrnwy Half Marathon

Report – Kate Barney

A few months ago I was invited by a family friend to run the Lake Vyrnwy half marathon to mark them completing a half marathon before turning 60.

With the promise of great company, stunning views and a flat course how could I say no?!

I am currently in a training block for the Eryri marathon and initially set out to to get some hill training in and then use the half marathon as an easy run – well aren’t those some famous last words!

My hill training had gone surprisingly well and it turned out I had enough fuel left in my legs to take a stab at a PB. 

As I mentioned, the course is advertised as flat but there is a slight incline that takes you up to the lake from Llanfyllin before you are greeted by the stunning scenery.

I was feeling really good but took it with a pinch of salt as I was completely convinced that for the 1st half of the race I was running downhill meaning that I was anticipating an uphill on the other side. However, that never came and as it turns out when I looked back at my Strava I had been running on the near enough flat!

No complaints from me.

My legs were starting to tire around mile 11 but I kept pushing because I remembered the downhill that would take me back to the finish.

Almost as if it was planned, Dancing Queen came on through my headphones and drove me across the finish line! I looked at my watch and noticed I had completely smashed my PB from earlier in the year and taken over 6 minutes off to finish in 01:51:38.

For anyone that wants the opportunity to run on a flat course in a truly breathtaking location then Lake Vyrnwy is definitely one to add to the list!

Also, you get an absolute banger of a medal.

As I write this Paula Williams should have not long arrived in Pescara in Italy where she will be competing for Great Britain in the  European Masters Athletics Championships.

Team Manager Mike Sheppard

“It was a another brilliant team effort at Abingdon on a scorchingly hot day. Despite losing a hatful of athletes in the days before the match, we finished an impressive second on the day with our closest rivals Newport back in fourth.  

Unfortunately this left us an agonising half point behind Newport for the season overall. The four points they beat us by in Stoke ultimately costing us promotion by the smallest of margins for the third successive year.

Leamington   29

Whilst it is disappointing to miss out on promotion, the Stratford team has performed with real tenacity this year. It has also been great to welcome so many new athletes to the league over the four matches and, as ever, our officials have been fantastic.

Thank you for all your efforts  And next year is another year……!”

We finished in 4th place out of 8 teams in the A cup final
Our Vets T&F team finished a credible 4th place out of the 8 teams competing in the A Cup Final. The team qualified for the A final by finishing 2nd in their league

On the day we saw excellent 3rd place finish for our ladies but a disappointing 7th place out of 8 for our men’s team despite the superb effort by all of those competing.

A mixture of a few big hitters missing, fixture and holiday clashes, late withdrawals and, to cap it all, an unfortunate injury during the competition left our men with a mountain to climb. Maybe next year

It was a truly fabulous day though with the team expertly led by team manager Hannah Osborne and with our volunteer officials helping the event run smoothly
