We are delighted to be back once again with the Cannock Rotary 10km which takes place on our usual weekend of Sunday November 20th 2016 at 11.00 am. This event is now in its seventh year and gives runners the opportunity to race an accurately measured 10km race on the roads through Cannock Chase, starting close to the Cannock Chase Visitor centre on Marquis Drive (same place as the Staffs Knot finish). PLI is covered under the Rotary Club policy, and the course will be fully marshalled on the day. A full certificate of course accuracy is held from 2010, fully updated each year.  All finishers will receive a good quality medal, and there will be trophies for the first three men and first three ladies to finish, plus bottles of wine to category winners as listed below.

2015 RACE

 

NOVEMBER 23 :: We have full results now available.  All your individual positions within the male and female races, as well as full category positions have now been added.  CLICK HERE to download the full results listing.

NOVEMBER 22 :: Whilst offering thanks to all of our helpers, we must also apologise for errors at the prizegiving after the race. We were hit with power failures after TWO generators went down meaning I was unable to prepare results and prizewinners in the usual way and had to do it on a wing and a prayer. Apologies to those who I messed up on the day – we are confident the provisional results are correct, and the right people were credited with their successes eventually on the day. Again my apologies to those involved (Remi, Pippa, Louise and Lisa).

NOVEMBER 22 :: Our grateful thanks to all those who helped to make the 6th Cannock Rotary 10km another success. All the Rotarians who came out on a chilly, but sunny morning to marshal, those who spent their Saturday putting signs out, those who volunteered (or who were volunteered) to assist us with the times & number recording on the day. Thanks also to FOUR SEASONS CONSERVATORIES who were our main sponsors for the first time – love the camper van !!!!

NOVEMBER 22 :: 2013 Ladies Champion and 2014 Runner up REMI FLAVELL of Birchfield Harriers took the 2015 title in a time of 40.26, comfortably ahead of PIPPA STEELE who finished second in 43.27 and LOUISE ANDREWS of Kenilworth Runners in 43.45.

NOVEMBER 22 :: Congratulations to the 2015 Cannock Rotary 10km Champion MATTHEW WILLIAMS from Notts AC. Matthew finished in a time of 34.14 which is only 30 seconds outside the course record set in the very first race in 2010. None of our Champions since have managed to get anywhere near this time. Indeed the first three all finished in a faster time than any previous winner other than MALCOLM MUIR in 2010.  2012 and 2014 Champion JONATHAN CARTER came second in 34.53, with GEORGE BIRT of Hinckley RC third in 35.09.

NOVEMBER 22 :: PROVISIONAL results are now available to view. If there are any queries or problems please contact us over the next 24 hours, but with the help of our checkers we believe everything is correct.  Full results will be ready as soon as possible, but probably in 24 hours time.

NOVEMBER 21 :: There will be a short race briefing at 10.50 outside Race HQ. PLEASE DO NOT WALK UP TO THE START UNTIL THIS IS COMPLETED and everybody can head off together. The road is usually busy and we dont want anybody hurt before (or during) the race.  ONCE AT THE START AREA, PLEASE REMAIN ON THE GRASS AREA AND NOT ON THE ROADS !

NOVEMBER 21 :: All prerace entries have now closed. Registration for ON THE DAY entries will open around 09.15 tomorrow morning AND WILL CLOSE AT 10.45 in order to brief runners and walk up to the start.  On the day entries will cost £13 for all runners. PLEASE HELP US AND BRING THE RIGHT MONEY WITH YOU.  Cheques should be made out to CAMBA EVENTS please.

NOVEMBER 21 :: The BBC weather forecast for Sunday has changed twice since the 19th. No overnight rain or sleet is now expected, but it suggests a foggy night with lingering fog and mist into Sunday morning. By 11 oclock however it should have cleared, with light cloud and sunny intervals forecast. Temperatures no higher than 3 degrees though, so wrap up warm.

NOVEMBER 20 :: Online entries close at midnight tonight, so last chance to preenter Cannock 2015.

NOVEMBER 19 :: According to the BBC weather site, you may well need your thermals on Sunday. After some overnight sleet the forecast is for a dry morning with light winds BUT the temperature isnt expected to rise above 4 degrees. There is the chance of a light rain shower around midday, a perfect excuse for you to run that little bit faster and finish before the rain.  We will try and update the forecast on Saturday.

NOVEMBER 18 :: Please note that Postal Entries HAVE NOW CLOSED. With earlier collections it is almost impossible to guarantee the receipt of your race number after todays post. However, any further postal entries received will be processed with your number ready for collection on Sunday. We will e-mail you with acknowledgement of your entry being received.

NOVEMBER 17 :: We have extended the deadline for on line entries until Friday 20th November.

NOVEMBER 12 :: IMPORTANT MESSAGE :: Cannock Rotary Club have in conjunction with 2015 race sponsors FOUR SEASONS CONSERVATORIES agreed to increase the number of category prizes this year by two in each of the mens and ladies categories. In addition to the usual eight prizes, we will also be rewarding the first man 60-70 and first man over 70, plus the first lady 55-65 and first lady over 65. Should there be no finisher in the highest category, we will split the M60-70 and F55-65 categories and award each five year age group winner. Prizes will be bottles of wine.

NOVEMBER 11 :: Medals and trophies have been received to-day and are all packed up ready for Race Day.

NOVEMBER 10 :: We have opened up another 50 online entries for anyone who prefers this entry method. As before, go to www.runnersworld.co.uk and follow the usual links.

NOVEMBER 23 :: Thank you all for coming out on a grey, cold morning to join our 10km race across the Chase.  199 finishers crossed the line before heading home for a nice warming cuppa and a rest.

NOVEMBER 22 :: WEATHER WATCH !!!  Don’t you just love weather forecasters ?  To-day, the same forecast says that the light rain will cease between 07.00 and 08.00 and the rest of the morning will be dry with just light cloud. There is even sunshine forecast for 2.00pm – 4.00pm, but hopefully you’ll all be in the pub by then.

NOVEMBER 22 :: Thank you all for supporting Cannock Rotary Club – we have our highest ever pre-entry this year, and in fact have more runners entered in advance than we had in total last year.

NOVEMBER 22 :: IF ANY PRE-ENTERED RUNNERS ARE UNABLE TO TAKE PART AND HAVE GIVEN THEIR  NUMBER TO A CLUB-MATE OR FRIEND, CAN YOU PLEASE LET US KNOW BEFORE RACE DAY ! All we need is your number and name, and the name, club and age of the person taking your place. This is to avoid problems with results, and for health & safety reasons in the event of an accident.

NOVEMBER 21 :: WEATHER WATCH !!!  Less than six hours after the previous posting the forecast has changed.  Still only 7 degrees, but light rain until just after 10.00am, then light cloud but NO rain for a couple of hours, and sunny intervals in the afternoon. Guess you may not need your cagoule after all !

NOVEMBER 21 :: Your medals and the trophies for the first three men and first three ladies have arrived.

NOVEMBER 21 :: WEATHER WATCH !!!  At the moment, the BBC weather forecast for WS12 is offering a chilly morning on Sunday (just 7 degrees) with light rain early on turning to heavy rain around mid-day.  Bring your cagoule !

NOVEMBER 21 :: Don’t forget there will be teas/coffees/bacon sarneys etc available on the day next to the registration tent.

NOVEMBER 20 :: Our medal suppliers RUNNING IMP INTERNATIONAL have phoned to-day to advise they do not have enough medals in stock to fill our order – 11 DAYS AFTER WE HAD PLACED OUR ORDER !!!  We have had to therefore switch to a different medal and we apologise unreservedly if the medal you receive on Sunday isn’t as good as the one you would have had ! Seems RII have virtually no stock of anything we would have wanted, so we have had to compromise. Fortunately, for next year, there are other suppliers !

Wrap up warm folks !

NOVEMBER 13 :: 250 medals and our winners' trophies have arrived to-day from Running Imp International so all is now set for Sunday's third Cannock Rotary 10km.

NOVEMBER 13 :: It's a huge postbag to-day with 20 entries, all have been processed and race numbers/information packs sent back to all but one, who has asked to pick up his number on Sunday morning.

NOVEMBER 3 :: We have received TWO "fee to pay" cards from Royal Mail to-day - two A4 letters in envelopes marked Do Not Bend, but with standard stamps on them.

OCTOBER 12 :: We believe that the information booklets are now ready, and hopefully we will receive them over the weekend. As soon as we have them, we will post out race numbers to all entries.

OCTOBER 11 :: PLEASE ensure that you have put the correct postage on your entry - we have received a card from Royal Mail this morning advising that they cannot deliver because the sender paid 19p less than the correct postage. This is the difference between a second class large (A4) letter and an ordinary letter, so looks like somebody used an A4 envelope with an ordinary stamp. THIS WILL NOT BE COLLECTED FROM ROYAL MAIL so if you believe this was you, please contact us.
