After much lockdown’ness and many deferred race events this year, The Staffordshire Knot 5 miler finally got under way at Cannock Chase.

Overall, it was an excellent turn out from running clubs, as far afield as Stoke!

Very well organised event with superb car park marshalling and then it was straight over to the bib tent to collect your number and complimentary safety pins.

The marshalling and layout of the course was excellently done with a touch of rustic sawdust on the trail route to make arrow signs to help direct the runners.

There was a good turnout from LRC and for a good solid part of the race, runners stayed tightly compact around the course. A number are competing in marathons later this year so the added team support was great for their training.

Basically, a really good evening run and a lovely atmosphere, topped off with a souvenir duffle bag to mark the occasion. A big well done to Hermione Green who finished 5th in the female category and Morgan Bradley who came 28th overall. Here’s the rest of the teams results:-

28th Morgan Bradley 00:32:12
40th Hermione Green 00:34:01
104th Paul Keighley 00:38:54
