Congratulations to our 11 fantastic runners who completed the Worcester City Half Marathon and 10K run! We are very proud of the hard work you have put in, both in training for the event and in raising money for us.

Big shout out to our sponsors Southco Inc, who provided runners, lovely goodie bags and food to fuel our runners on race day—it would not be possible without you.

Special mentions go firstly to Judith Cumino for completing her first half marathon, while Lindsay completed his third run for us at the grand old age of 80! As you can imagine he’s a bit of a legend here at WAC, so we thought we’d speak to him about  running (and maybe pick up a tip or two!

How long have you been running for?

I ran cross country during National Service 1961. After a long break I started again in 1981. In 1984 I ran the London Marathon.

How much training do you do?

I train daily! I vary my training with steady runs, hill reps and flexibility training. My running club coaches give advice.

What keeps you motivated to go running (especially on cold, dark days!)?

I’m a bit obsessed! I’m also inspired by desire to stay fit, slim and healthy. I love running with my grandson Maxwell. He is 10, is autistic and loves to run! We’ve been running in events together (junior park runs) since he was 4!

Why do you choose to run for Worcestershire Association of Carers?

I’ve been a carer for wife Beryl since 1998 and I got help and good advice from WAC.

What would you say to someone thinking about starting to run?

Running is wonderful! If you run, you keep fit and keep happy.

What a star! Look forward to seeing you in Team WAC2020 Lindsay!
