Stourbridge Stagger

Hi everyone – unfortunately the gazette didn’t print the full report this week so thought I’d post it here for you to see. Sorry to those who wanted their picture in the paper – keep on running and I’ll keep trying to get us in.


Malvern Joggers took part in the popular annual race put on by Stourbridge Running Club. The Stourbridge Stagger is a 10 mile multi-terrain race run on an undulating off road course which this year was extremely muddy which added to the challenge. This well established friendly event started and finished by the bandstand in Mary Stevens Par, Stourbridge. Malvern Joggers put in some fine performances on a tough course led home by Ben Toon in 1:19:44 followed by Megan Judge in 1:23:55 and Trevor Matty in 1:24:56.
