Stourbridge STAGGER Marshals – Thank you!

Dear Marshal

Thank you so much for your support yesterday at the Stourbridge Stagger. I was overwhelmed from the very beginning when so many of you turned up early to help set up the course and registration area.   The atmosphere in and around the Hub and out on the course was positive and uplifting. The feedback given by the runners, both at the end of the race and on Facebook is how motivating and friendly the marshals were and the photos already posted reinforce this. You all played an important role in the success of the race and I cannot thank you […]

Stourbridge STAGGER A BIG Success & Thank you

Dear Members,

I would like to say, on behalf of the whole club, a very big THANK YOU to the race sub committee for organising and executing a very successful 2019 Stagger. We had nearly 500 people enter the main event and 85 in the 7k run. That’s nearly 600 entries, more than we have previously had before.
I was particularly struck by the way everyone supported Helen and her team and turned up to prepare the park for the race. There was even a large contingency there at 7.30am….and it wasn’t just the offer of bacon sarnies […]

We Want to form a Race Sub Committee

We on the committee cannot stress enough, the importance THE STAGGER plays, in the financial health of the club. (THE STUMBLE usually makes a small loss.) THE STAGGER accounts for over 63% of the club’s income and 100% of any financial surplus the club has. This surplus contributes to club events including, our race teams, many social events like camping and coach trips, club B.B.Q.’s, Christmas events and our charitable giving. It has contributed to our weekly food bill and kept our membership fees low. As Mark Carney, Head of the Bank of England, was heard to say,“it’s to big […]
