Roger Wilson, Phil Brennan and Chris Whateley dominated the V65 category for the top three places while Jean Hill improved her PB by a massive three minutes.
The runners reported there was a great atmosphere to the race with plenty of entertainment put on in Alcester High Street.
The event was very well organised and the rolling road closures made for very safe running. Hopefully they will host this race again next year, and it could well become a classic.
The winner of the event was James Bowler from Bromsgrove and Redditch AC in a time of 32 minutes 46 seconds.
