Duff leads way for B&R at Timberhonger 10km

THE 15TH staging of the Timberhonger 10k – held in conjunction with Bromsgrove Carnival week – proved a success as it was well marshaled and organised by Bromsgrove & Redditch Athletic Club.

The 10k course is very testing on narrow country lanes with some climbs and a long, straight run into Sanders Park.

Some 542 runners completed Saturday’s event – an increase on last year’s figure.

First woman home was Leonie Balter of Birmingham Running, Athletics & Triathlon Club in 38.18.

B&R’s next event is the third of the Midweek Series races at Droitwich on Wednesday, July 12.
