The main sponsor of next week’s (June 12) 4,000-strong Two Castles run between Warwick and Kenilworth is asking any runner who has to pull out to let the organisers know so that someone else can have their place.

Richard Thornton, joint senior partner at Leamington solicitors Blythe Liggins, who are sponsoring the race for 11th consecutive year, said: “It is inevitable that some people who were lucky enough to get a place will now find themselves unable to attend. We have 650 hopefuls on the waiting list and I would urge anyone who has to pull out to cancel now so that their place can be offered to the next one on the waitlist.”

Mr Thornton urges non-runners to either contact organisers Kenilworth Rotary Club and Leamington Cycling & Athletics Club or, alternatively, to find a substitute and hand them the race number when they receive it – after they have logged in to their Fullonsport account and changed the registrant’s details to those of the substitute. Without a race number there will be no entry to the start at Warwick Castle.

In addition to sponsorship, Blythe Liggins will also be fielding a team of about 30 runners, manning a water station and providing marshals for the event, which raises around £100,000 for charity.

The 34th year of the race, will start at Warwick Castle at 9.00 am on Sunday June 12 with the winner expected at Kenilworth Castle just over 30 minutes later.
