I’ve just become aware of this event scheduled to take place in Holland Park, Brownhills, on Saturday, 10th August 2013. The flyer below says entries have closed – but with 10 days to go, I’m sure they’ll probably fit your team in if you’re quick.
Last year this took place in Pelsall and was a great day out, by all accounts. My apologies for not getting it out quicker – but this looks like a fine thing that will be fun for competitors and spectators alike.
For more information, or to enquire about entering a team, call 01922 653707. The cost is £20 per team, will all proceeds being donated to Air Ambulance.
