ENTRIES are now open for this year’s Timberhonger 10k and Children’s Challenge held at Sanders Park on Saturday, July 13.

The Bromsgrove Carnival event will see a number of runners from the Kingfisher Harriers Club take part.

The group, who will standout in their distinctive orange running kits, will also help marshal the area by turning the junction of Timberhonger Lane and Berry Lane into ‘Kingfisher Corner’ for the evening.

Club chairman Ernie Heaton said: “We had a lot of fun supporting the event last year because it’s local, it’s fun and there’s just a wee slope!

“We’re very proud and hope to be involved for many years to come.”

This will be the 17th Timberhonger 10k which has seen more than £50,000 for local good causes raised over the years.

This year event will be supporting the Primrose Hospice, Libby Mae’s Little Angels, and the Midlands Air Ambulance.

Race director Mark Graham said: “This time there will be medals for all finishers.

“We’ve also specially commissioned a Timberhonger beer from Gadds brewery for runners over 18 which we can confirm – it tastes very good.”

The Children’s Challenge, for under 15s, will also be held onSanders Park.

Youngsters will get race numbers, chip timing and a medal.
