RUNNERS are advised to be quick off the mark to sign up for this year’s Regency Run.

Organisers Leamington Round Table say spaces are filling up for the annual 10k run and 1km Kids Run Free Juniors’ run on Sunday April 15.

The run is set to attract a record 2,500 entrants this year, with all proceeds going to local causes and charities including official the event’s official charity British Blind Sport.

Paul Grundy from the Round Table said: “Each year the Wright Hassall Regency Run gets bigger and bigger. For 2018 we want to see even more runners on the day and to help raise vital funds for the local community.

“The event has raised more than £275,000 for local causes since it began. The atmosphere on the day is tremendous, it is one of the standout days in the Leamington sport and events’ calendar.

“It’s great to be able to support British Blind Sport this year, continuing our long standing relationship with the charity. It does excellent work, both locally and nationwide, in helping people with visual impairments.

“We want to make this year’s run the best yet and the flurry of entries we’ve already received has got us off to a flying start.”

And Nick Abell, chairman of event sponsors Wright Hassall said they were delighted to support the run again.

He said: “We are delighted to continue our long history of supporting the run for a 14th consecutive year.

“Our Wright Hassall team will be taking part and everyone at the firm looks forward to the event. It is a special day for Leamington and the funds raised have a significant impact on the wider community.”
