Nearly £250,000 raised at Regency Run

Nearly £250,000 has been raised so far for local charities, thanks to the ninth Regency Run in Leamington.

The Wright Hassall Regency 10km Run has taken place each year since 2005 and draws large crowds as well as around 2,000 runners.

Entry fees and sponsorship money had already passed the £200,000 mark prior to this year’s event and another fantastic turnout saw another £29,000 raised this time around.

The money is distributed by race organisers Leamington Round Table to a range of local causes such as Round Oak School, Support Service and Sports College, which receives money to allow children with learning difficulties to compete in ‘Special Olympics’ events across the country.
