She added: "I am very happy to join him in wishing Alan Bowler and the Halesowen & Rowley Regis Rotary Club and all of those who are taking part in Sunday's fun run the very best of luck.

"They are doing this for good causes. We congratulate them and wish them well."

The Black Country fun run takes place this weekend.

Over the years it has raised thousands of pounds for local charities.


The Black Country Road Run is introducing a corporate challenge this year. Organisers have partnered with The Black Country Chamber of Commerce and we are encouraging their members and local businesses to get involved.

Teams of up to five people will be able to enter into either the 10k Race or the Fun Run.
