Stourbridge Runners stayed local this weekend with runners at the Birmingham and Black Country half marathon and the Black Country 10k.
On Saturday runners took on the half marathon between Wolverhampton - Birmingham, 13 miles on the Old Mainline Canal which includes the 360 yards Coseley tunnel. To ease congestion on the narrow paths runners set off in small groups meaning runners were against the clock rather than the runner in front.
Dave Sheppard posted the fastest time for Stourbridge in 1:54:16, followed closely by Helen Evans in 1:55:41, Jayne Gardner 1:56:15, Phil Dunn in 1:58:39, Andy Bernasconi in 2:08:50 and Ian Bytheway in 2:10:13.
On Sunday, runners took on the two-lap road race around Halesowen. Chris Ashcroft was first Stourbridge runner in 41:57, Kieran Burke was 2nd under 20 in 47:41 and Duncan Evans finished in 1:00:06.
