Around 2,000 runners to take to the streets of Leamington for 20th anniversary event

Stratford Editorial 1st Apr, 2024   0

AROUND 2,000 runners are set to take to the streets of Leamington for the 20th anniversary of a popular event.

The Wright Hassall Regency 10k Run will return on Sunday (April 7) once again organised by the Leamington Round Table and supported by title sponsor local law firm Wright Hassall.

This year’s event is billed to start at the slightly later time of 10am, and participants will take the usual route starting at Newbold Terrace East and finishing at Mill Gardens, next to Jephson Gardens.

The course is a combination of paved surfaces and bridleways, with all road sections closed to traffic. A free 1k kids run will also take place at 11.30am.




There will be a host of refreshments available at the finish line for runners and spectators alike.

And the winners of each category will be also announced, with a cash prize for the first, second, and third placed male and female runners, and trophies presented to teams and age category winners.


The event will mark 20 years of the popular run, which has helped raise £440,000 for local good causes, with previous race directors from across the years invited along to celebrate its success.

A number of this year’s runners will also be celebrating their own anniversary having taken part in every single event.

Sam Tyler, from Leamington Round Table and race director for 2024, said: “This year’s Wright Hassall Regency 10k Run is extremely special as it celebrates a major milestone.

“We never imagined the event would still be going 20 years later when it was first launched, but it has grown to become one of Leamington’s biggest and most-loved annual fundraisers.”
