Two Castles

The Two Castles is one of our favourite 10k runs, despite the inclines! There was a great turnout from RR members, both running and supporting en route. Here are some of the comments from our runners:

It was so lovely to see familiar faces before the race and knowing some of you had nerves helped me at the start. I really enjoyed the run even the hills!!! I ran/walked it and was so chuffed that I wasn’t taken out by the marshall for being too slow!!!!!!!!! It was so amazing to have my mum and dad and two daughters and, of course, Olivia at the finish line with huge high fives and even bigger hugs. A huge thank you to everyone at RR, and I do mean everyone. The support from those that run on a Thursday means so much but it’s really lovely that runners I don’t run with give support as well. Thank you to all the leaders who have supported and encouraged me and had so much patience with me!! I couldn’t have done it with out you and, as always, a HUGE shout out to my personal trainer Liv for everything.

Anne was awesome! I loved it (although I thought I might not finish and cried twice thanks to the pain from my broken toe).

Further proof today of the difference it makes being part of Regency Runners – the shared nerves at the start, the company all the way round (which definitely kept me going, thanks Tanya!), and the great support on the course and from afar. It was a PB for me (on any course), which I definitely wouldn’t have done on my own! Thanks ladies xx

My plan was to run with you (Rebecca) to start and then let you go on one of the hills when I ran out of steam but I managed to keep up. And I think it may be a PB for that run! Yay! Thank you. Feeling good x

Not a 10k PB but over two minutes quicker than I’ve run Two Castles before. I think it’s because I have somehow learnt to run up hills.

It was a Two Castles PB for me too!

Very pleased with my 10k PB! And I agree Lina, they were only fairly small inclines really! Thanks so much to Elaine who I ran alongside for quite a few miles. Never dreamt for a moment when I first watched this race in the 1990s that one day I’d run it myself. Thanks so much to everyone at RR! Xx
