OAP's Day Out At Birmingham Hydro Run

Marion Willetts writes

Just a short report about the race this morning.

Eileen, Ann and I set off at 8.30am this morning for the Hydro Women’s Challenge in Birmingham.  We tried ‘Ring a Ride’ for transport but they would not cross council boundaries so Ann’s husband Roger acted as chauffeur, bless him

After a rousing warm up with some aerobic ladies we made our way to the start, only to be kept waiting 15 minutes for the sound of the Claxton and a wave of the flag. - We were off.

Many people lined the route, waved and cheered us along Broad Street and on to the Hagley Road via the underpass.

There was the usual crescendo of noise from ‘the lunatic fringe’ (all 2000 runners) – shouting and screaming as they ran through the underpass.  At the 2k marker some elite runners were returning on the other side of the road, however, there was no despondency as we pressed on towards TGI Friday’s.  This was the midway point and we were homeward bound.  The crowds continued to encourage us all particularly over the last 1km.

We all finished in respectable times, collected our medals and received a massive ‘goody bag’.

Back at the finish we meet up with Jayne Tibbetts, Roni, and Siva – all Dudley Ladies runners.  We all enjoyed the race with the weather ideal for running.

By the way in the goody bag were plasters, 2 different Muscle rub lotions and well women tablets.  Did they have OAPs in mind?
