CONDITIONS were tricky for this year’s hilly, two-lap, 12km Arrow Valley Trail Race along the bridleways of Arrow Valley Park.

An afternoon-long downpour meant conditions underfoot were particularly challenging as 147 runners including 24 from Bromsgrove & Redditch Athletic Club lined up for the off-road event.

Leading from the start, Droitwich AC runner Paul Little won the race in an impressive 46.40 and Molly Browne from BRAT (Birmingham Running Athletics & Triathlon Club) finished in seventh place to be the first lady in 49.25.

B&R runners finished as follows: 5th Malcolm Duff – 48.53; 9th Neil Ogden – 49.38; 10th Rob Mole – 49.55; 11th Mark Tanner – 50.10; 13th Ian Keyte – 50.43; 15th Adam Parr – 50.50; 20th – Dean Hartshorne – 51.28; 29th Tom Richardson – 53.25; 30th Paul Collins – 53.30; 37th John Searle – 53.55; 38th Gavin Moorhead – 54.30; 44th Sam Lake – 55.56; 45th Phil Richardson – 55.58; 48th Robert Humphries – 56.32; 49th Katy Barden – 57.01; 65th Mel Hepke – 59.38; 80th Ian Nutter – 61.35; 90th Sarah Richardson – 64.26; 100th Jo Hounsell-Hardy – 65.01; 116th Julia Blake – 68.14; 120th Peter Taylor – 68.42; 126th – Debbie Simpson – 70.00; 133rd Jennifer Lipscombe – 71.53; 140th Holly Smith – 76.45.
