Hundreds take part in Kinver Rotary 10K
6:24pm Monday 30th September 2013 in News
HUNDREDS of runners took to the South Staffordshire streets for the annual Kinver Rotary 10K road race.
More than 300 athletes took part in the event, held on Sunday September 29, in aid of Dudley’s Action Heart charity.
South Staffordshire MP Gavin Williamson officially opened the race which started at Potters Cross and finished on Edgecliff School’s playing fields.
Gavin also awarded the prizes to the winners of the event, which is regarded by serious runners as one of the most challenging in the area.
The MP said: “I had a wonderful time at the Kinver Rotary Club 10k Road Race. I am full of admiration for all the runners who took part in this difficult race, in order to help raise money for this very worthy cause.
“I would also like to thank all the people who worked so hard to organise the event. You could tell how much effort had gone into organising this day and making it a fantastic success.”
A separate 2K family fun run was also held on the day for less experienced runners wishing to get involved and do their bit to support the Rotary Club’s chosen cause - Action Heart’s cardiac rehabilitation centre based at Russells Hall Hospital which treats heart patients across the Black Country.
