On behalf of Worksop Harriers, I thank everyone who contributed to the great 
success of this year’s 33rd Worksop Half Marathon, which incorporated the 
Nottinghamshire AAA’s County Championships, once again. We were very 
fortunate with the weather this year, especially after the high winds earlier in the 
week. On the day, we did have reasonable running conditions, although a little 
windy at times, and this was reflected in many personal best performances, 
even though the course could be described as more undulating than flat.

 

I would especially like to thank those runners who have taken the time to place 

comments, on the various social media sites, they are extremely positive and 

are a great source of encouragement to the organising committee and our large 

band of volunteers, without whom it would not be possible to promote such a 

large event. There was a fraction under 2000 runners entered into this year’s 

Half Marathon, and well over 200 entries in the Fun Run, with almost 2000

finishers in the two events combined

 

Set in, and around, the spectacular autumn woodlands of Clumber Park, this 

race regularly ranks amongst the most scenic, well organised and ‘value for 

money’ races, in the Country, according to those voting on Runner’s World 

and, in 2012, the race was ranked 2nd most scenic course in the UK Half 

Marathon list. We will, however, continue to take note of all of the comments 

again, this year, as we strive to improve even further.

 

I thank all the runners who continue to support our event, in such large 

numbers, and all of the members, friends and families of Worksop Harriers 

who perform all the various tasks leading up to the race and on race day 

itself. Today, the setting up and dismantling of all of the equipment, and 

drinks and sponge stations, was done quickly and to a high standard and, 

after such an early start, I was pleased that all of our helpers, on the day, 

managed to get home much earlier than normal.  I am very grateful that 

the Highways Authority allow the roads to be closed and to the Police, 

Traffic Management Services, Fire Brigade, Cascare Medical support and 

Bassetlaw District Council workers who all provide a tremendous service 

on the day, to ensure that the athletes are able to perform to the best of 

their abilities and live their dreams, in a safe environment.

 

We now support three main charities, Cerebral Palsy Sport (CP Sport), 

The Northern Society for Autism in Children and Adults (NORSACA) and 

Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice, and it is hoped that all of these Charities, 

and the other charities which individual runners support, will enjoy significant 

benefits from being part of our Event.

 

This year, once again, Dave and Julie’s ‘Tea and Cake’ stall did exceptionally 

well, once again raising over  £1000 for P.A.C.T. at Sheffield Children’s 

Hospital – Oncology Department, a fantastic fund raising achievement for a 

tea and cake stall.  They both wish to thank everyone who contributed to 

the baking of the cakes and to those who bought them.

 

I hope that the volunteers, as well as the runners, enjoyed this year’s 

experience and that you will continue to give your support in future years, 

perhaps even adding a friend, or two, to our much needed band of helpers, 

and that the runners will encourage their club mates and colleagues to take 

part next year.

 

And finally, I thank our sponsors and supporters, because without their 

contribution the event would not be possible:

 

Sports Systems, Sweatshop, Vision Express, ASDA, GK KIA Motors, 

Asics, Nottinghamshire County Council, Bassetlaw District Council, Eve, 

Worksop Police, Worksop Fire Brigade, Cascare for their medical back up 

and support, Worksop Guardian, Nottinghamshire Highways Authority, 

Raynet, Angel Water, Wilkinsons, WH Smith, Marks And Spencer, Halfords, 

Frontrunner, Barnsley Premier Leisure, Wilkinson, Savoy Cinemas, TMS, 

The Green Toilet Company, One in Tent, Worksop College and National 

Trust (Clumber Park).

 

Thank you ALL, for making this year’s race such an enjoyable experience 

for so many people.

 

Peter Fendley

Race Director and Chairman of Worksop Harriers
