Organisers of 10k run near Lichfield delighted with early response

A 10k race near Lichfield is already proving popular – despite being two months away!

The Florette Fradley 10k takes place on March 13 and has already received record numbers of enquiries as the 2011 running season gets into full swing.

And following the success of last year’s event – which was won by James Trollop – the organisers are expecting another big event.

Paul Griffin, from KP Events, explained:

“ The event is the biggest 10k run inn South Staffs in Spring time and people always want to run it as it is a flat course through lovely countryside in and around Fradley Village. Florette are a company based in Fradley and they want to be involved in a local event too, and they have a team of 10 runners this year so there is an additional interest in how their staff perform.

“It should be a great event again and there is also the progression for people signed up to do the London Marathon on April as well as our first Lichfield half Marathon on May 1.”

Anyone interested in more information on Florette Fradley 10k or the Lichfield Half Marathon should go to or call Paul on 07947 698147.
