Leamington Park Run

Regency Runners take over Park Run

Leamington Spa Park Run on 27th February 2016 was no different from any other – it’s still muddy, that hill is just as tough and the winter sun is still struggling to show its face – but what was different were the volunteers as this week saw the run taken over by our lovely ladies. We certainly got stuck into our various roles from leading the warm up to number checking, shouting encouragement while marshalling, tail running with a smile, barcode scanning as well as funnel management. Tina and Nicki, who were tasked with this last role, were rather bemused that they had to be aware of ‘funnel duckers’ – try saying that after a few drinks!

The reason for the take over was to promote the forthcoming Sport Relief Mile which Regency Runners have been privileged in being tasked to organise. Taking place at St Nicholas Park in Warwick at 9am on Sunday 20th March, local residents are being encouraged to sign up and run either 1, 3 or 6 miles. Bring your families and come in fancy dress, if you wish. Register here: The Warwick Mile
