Kenilworth Rotary Club is now in the final stages of organising next month’s annual Two Castles run.

Kenilworth’s biggest sporting event – which broke all records when the 4,000 places were snapped up in little more than three hours – will start at Warwick Castle at 9.00 am on Sunday June 14 with the winner expected at Kenilworth Castle just over 30 minutes later.

Rotary press officer Bob Kelly said the event, which is being sponsored by Leamington law firm Blythe Liggins for the 10th year, raises around £100,000 for charity.

“The Two Castles is one of the best-loved athletic events in the Midlands and is both for serious runners and for those who run for sheer enjoyment, or for charity. Each year it grows in popularity and attracts entries from all the country. We have 600 on the waiting list and I would urge anyone who cannot now run to let us know so that we can offer the place to the next on the list,” he said.

Richard Thornton, joint senior partner at Blythe Liggins, which also fields a large team of runners and provides marshals and a water station, said: “This was a fantastic effort. There has been an explosion of interest in the Two Castles over recent years and this record time of three hours reflects that. Kenilworth Rotary Club has done an amazing job yet again.

“It’s a wonderful event and the whole firm always looks forward to taking part. We are extremely proud to have been supporting it for so many years,” said Mr Thornton.
