In 2021 the following events were selected by the Midland Counties Road-Running Committee to host the Midland Championship Race over the distance shown below.
5k Road Race
Twilight 5k – Sunday 18th July 2021
10k Road Race

10-Mile Road Race
Derby 10-mile – Sunday 14th November 2021

Last year’s experience has prompted us to expand the Midland Championships to include team races as well as individual races, with prizes for the first three teams as well as the first three individuals. The 5k will also include a Junior event as last year. We have already had some expressions of interest but would welcome more. If you are considering applying, please be aware that we will be looking for races that:
1. Are fully licenced.
2. Have fully a qualified Race Adjudicator and Referee appointed.
3. Are prepared to charge an additional £2 fee for those athletes running in the Midland Championships (to cover the cost of the Midland medals).
4. Have an entry and result system that will cope with running the Championship within the existing event.
Expressions of interest should be made to Keith Brackstone, Chair, Midland Counties Road Running via email to coachkeith53@gmail.com by Monday 31st January 2022.
