Leamington Spa Half Marathon - 26th June 2022


Described by the organisers: The Leamington Spa half marathon that was voted the 2nd best half marathon in the UK in 2019, takes in the beautiful town and surroundings of one of Warwickshire’s finest spa towns, Royal Leamington Spa. 


Described by Sarah: Leamington Spa Half Marathon completed today. Started in the boiling hot sun and finished in the pouring rain! Lovely course with a mix of rural and urban and great selection of goodies- that you actually want - a bright orange t-shirt, elephant medal, bottle of water, and the one I appreciated the most: the banana! Would certainly recommend the event as long as the sort the toilets out at the start!

Not my best time for a half at 2.35.41 but it’s been a bit of a struggle the last two months with chest infection after chest infection so not as many training miles put in as I would have liked. Now let the official London Marathon training begin!

Run for Beer Relay - 24th June 2022


Described by the organisers: 

Do you like beer? Do you like running? Will you run 2 miles for beer? This pretty much sums up the Tempo Run For Beer Relay.  A fun social drinking/running event where you run and then you drink!

Completing a two-mile run each in teams of 4 on a route around the beautiful Recreation Ground in Stratford-upon-Avon (you could start you drinking beforehand but that could get rather messy!)

Every runner receives a free bottle of beer (curtesy of our sponsor – Church Farm Brewery) on completing their 2-mile leg.

This is a really fun event.  Whilst there are a few running club teams battling it out at the front there are prizes for best fancy dress, fastest pub team and several others.  There will also be food available to buy on the night.

Here are the categories, ALL teams are eligible for the Fancy Dress prize:

Pub / Corporate Team
Mixed Team (2 male + 2 female)
Mens Team
Ladies Team
Veteran Team (combined age 160yrs+)

Run the Rock 10k - 11th June 2022


From Richard:

They say; Run The Rock takes place on an undulating, mainly off road course, throughout natural beauty. You will experience tracks, fields, woods, footpaths, open lanes  and grasslands.Run the Rock has a 10k and a 5k route; both are fun, fulfilling and picturesque.

I say. 2 laps of a great course in Stokenchurch, couple of tough hills but enjoyable. Marshalls were great. I was 7th man in.

Tysoe Windmill 10k - 4th June 2022


From the organisers: "The run starts from Tysoe Sports Field. After a short distance through the village, the route joins a footpath up to the top of picturesque Windmill Hill — one of the higher peaks in South Warwickshire. From there, the 10km trail continues into neighbouring Compton Wynyates Estate — opened exclusively for this event. Taken through wood copses, across lush fields, past grazing sheep and deer — and up yet more hills — runners are treated to a true 10km challenge in a stunning landscape."
