This report comes from Neil Croxford, Race Director, Wythall and Hollywood fun runs:

The Wythall and Hollywood fun runs have taken on the summer of 2013 like a knight takes on a dragon.

With temperatures climbing the 4th annual road race set off from Silver Street in Wythall with 371 10k and 5k runners, attracting a mixture of club and amateur contestants.

This year saw a slower 5km field than normal with a winning time of 16.42 from Rich Bayliss in the men’s race and 19:38 from Sue Street-Hall in the ladies.

The 10km record has now been set at 36:47 by Matthew Smith in the men’s and 43:27 by  Holly Chipman.

The fun run in the park 1.5km race attracted 281 runners of all ages including a couple of dogs and at least 1 teddy who seamed to look as fresh at the end as he did at the start?

The age range for all three races went from 2 years old to 74,

This year also  saw the greatest take up from running clubs due to the running club challenge with over 79 runners taking part.
