Lawyers ready to run

Leamington Editorial 26th Apr, 2022   0

LAWYERS from Leamington solicitors Blythe Liggins have been in training for the Two Castles Run which is sponsored by their firm.

The event, which is organised jointly by Kenilworth Rotary and Leamington Spa Cycling and Athletics Club, has not been run since the beginning of the pandemic.

It is now scheduled for Sunday June 12 and Blythe Liggins is fielding a squad of some 30 runners, as well as providing some marshals and running the water station at the finish.

It will be the 15th year that Blythe Liggins has been the headline sponsor.

Senior partner David Lester said: “The charities supported by the runners have been hard hit by the pandemic with most of their main fundraising events cancelled, so it is even more important this year that as many people as possible dig deep to sponsor the individual runners.

“The Two Castles is a hugely popular event, which we are delighted to be giving our support to once again,”

Rotary president Philip Southwell, who also chairs the race planning team, said that all those who were successful in registering for the cancelled 2020 run had been given first choice to enter this year.

The 10k race, which is staffed entirely by unpaid volunteers and raises more than £100,000 for local and national charities, is run between the castles at Warwick and Kenilworth and more than 4,000 runners take part each year.

As there are still places available, simply apply via the Two Castles website or the Facebook page.

Mr Southwell said: “The race attracts people of all abilities from near and far. Each year we have far more people who want to take part than we have places for, which proves just how popular the run is. It is a hugely enjoyable event and a perfect way to raise substantial sums of money for charity. We are so grateful to Blythe Liggins for their continuing support and generous sponsorship.”
