The 10km was won by Michael Wilesmith in 32:59 with Molly Browne the first woman in 40:38 which was good enough for 7th overall.

The full results are available on our results page.

That's another year over for the School Out 10km & 20km road race and what a beautiful day it was. The weather shone down on all of our runners, the spectators certainly enjoyed the beautiful weather, not so sure the runners appreciated it quite a much? The feedback Raceways has received has been very positive and we are so pleased you all enjoyed the day. We must first say a huge THANK YOU to all of our volunteers, without whom we would not be able to make this such a success. Secondly thank you to all of our competitors for coming along and making the School Out race so successful. The final results have now been published on our web-site and all age group winners will be receiving an email shortly with details of how to receive their vouchers. Lastly but most definitely not least, don't forget to go onto the www.yourraceday.co.uk and check out your finisher photo's. We have been privy to some of the finisher photo's and they are fabulous, so thank you to Mike and his team for producing such great momentos for each competitor.

  • Alcester Minster Steeple Chase

    It's A Family Affair

    Monday 30th May 2016

    Have a fantastic bank holiday Monday exploring the Alcester Minster trails with your family and friends, choose from three distances, 20, 10 or 5 miles. The biggest decision that day is wether to Run, Walk or Cycle.

    All profits from this event will be donated to St Nicholas Church, to go towards the restoration and urgent repairs of the stonework.

     

    St Nicholas Church

    St Nicholas Church Alcester is the lead church of eight churches which together form the Alcester Minster. St Nicholas Church is situated in the middle of Alcester town and has been on this site since the 12th century when it was part of Alcester Abbey.

    The church boasts a tower dating back to the 14th and other parts of the building were reconstructed at various points in Georgian and Victorian times.

    It can claim to be the largest public space in the town and the centrepiece of this historic market town.

    A truly historic building of fantastic heritage but now in need of urgent repairs to the stonework to ensure the church can continue to be used as both a place of worship but more broadly for use by individuals and groups throughout the community.

    St Nicholas Church need to raise £250,000 to be able to carry out this work so by participating in the Alcester Minster Steeple Chase you will be helping us to carry out the necessary restoration of the building
