Leamington Editorial 15th Jan, 2016 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

THE RACE is on to grab a place in this year’s Regency Run.

Organisers Leamington and District Round Table are hoping more than 2,000 runners will sign up to take part in the 10K race on Sunday, April 17.

A 1.2km junior race in partnership with charity Kids Run Free will be held on the same day.

Law firm Wright Hassall has agreed to sponsor the event for the 12th year running while Leamington-based charity British Blind Sport will return as charity partner for the third year.

Mark Chambers, from Leamington and District Round Table, said: “There is always such a good atmosphere and a great sense of community so it should be a fantastic day.

“The run has helped raise thousands of pounds for British Blind Sport over the last few years and we’re looking forward to supporting the work of the charity again.

“The junior run has also grown in popularity over the last few years and we’re planning to extend the race this year.”

Ian Carr, fund-raising manager for British Blind Sport, added: “We’re really grateful to the Round Table for supporting us.

“The event has really helped raise the profile of British Blind Sport in Coventry and Warwickshire and supports our fundraising programme so we can continue our work in getting visually impaired people into sport and physically active.”
