Edgbaston Runners Set PBs in Bupa Great Birmingham Run

Edgbaston’s team of runners performed admirably in yesterday’s Bupa Great Birmingham Run as several members of the team reached personal bests in the club’s fundraising drive for Lead Charity Partner, Cure Leukaemia.

Cheered on by thousands of spectators, Paul Barton of Edgbaston’s Keith Prowse Hospitality team clocked our quickest time of the 1:37:52 for the 13-mile race, just 10 seconds ahead of the Warwickshire Cricket Board’s Ed McCabe, who achieved a Birmingham personal best of 1:38:02.

Craig Flindall, Edgbaston’s Finance Director also clocked a Birmingham personal best of 1:48:12, whilst a special mention must go to the club’s Ticket & Membership Manager Andy Nichol who ran 2:23:32 on his Half Marathon debut without any training.

Craig Flindall said: “The Bupa Great Birmingham Run is a fantastic, but gruelling event that showcases many parts of the city, including a run past Edgbaston and in to Cannon Hill Park.

“This year our team of runners were committed to raise as much money as possible to help Cure Leukaemia raise more than £100,000, which will help save the lives of patients being treated for leukaemia in the Midlands.

“Remember it’s not too late to donate and you can sponsor several members of the team direct through our Just Giving page.”
