Dudley Ladies Nearly Famous

A couple of weeks ago, Dudley Ladies RC were visited by Endemol, the TV Company that produces “Big Brother” 

They asked for our help in producing a TV program for the BBC called “Run for Glory” which is due to commence on Thursday evening 2nd March at 7.00pm in which 13 people from around the country volunteer to train for the grueling 26.2 mile London Marathon in just six months 

This is a huge undertaking for the volunteers, because not only are they unfit, many are battling personal traumas from cancer to disabling road accidents. World class athletes Sally Gunnell and Steve Cram are their tough coaches to help get them through. 

DL was asked to organize a 13 mile course for the volunteers to run as well as provide as many other runners as possible to give them encouragement and support during the run.

All the preparation work was done, the course sorted and the willing DL runners organized and everything was in place to commence filming but unfortunately for us, arrangements and requirements by the production team were changed at the last minute and the filming had to be moved to a different location so we missed out on being on TV 

This is the second time that we’ve been approached by TV people, so at least we now know that the media are aware of us and who knows when something like this will crop up again.

 So stay tuned for further developments.
