Birmingham 10K: ByteSnap Runners Among Record-Breaking Participants


Birmingham 10K: ByteSnap Runners Among Record-Breaking Participants ByteSnap Runners Join Thousands for City Run   L-R: Calum, Chris and Ville at the end of the run Three ByteSnap engineers have vowed to take on the 2019 Birmingham 10K Run after a snap decision to join this year's event. Calum, Chris and Ville were among a record-breaking 8,000 runners participating in the Simplyhealth Great Birmingham 10k earlier this month, on May Bank Holiday Sunday. The engineers were last minute entrants: "As an alumnus, a few weeks ago I got a letter from the University of Birmingham urging me to take part," explained Chris. "I'd done quite a bit of trail running, so I thought I'd try an official, timed run - and managed [...]
