On Saturday, entry opens for my favourite race of the year: the Two Castles Run between Warwick Castle and Kenilworth Castle.
It would also appear to be everyone else’s favourite run because places sell out with about 3 hours!!
The website describes it as a ‘Ten kilometre run between two of England’s most beautiful castles’. They are not wrong. It is a winding hilly course through some beautiful countryside which makes a pleasant change from my normal inner city training routes.
Check out the course elevation below :
My official result from 2013 was 00:49:29
I have recently ran a sub 45 minute 10K so I am hoping to replicate that in a race environment (If not better it!)
I will post more information about the two castles race nearer to the event but if you have thought about entering before and not got round to it, I strongly urge you to get up early on Saturday and enter.
What’s your favourite race?
Do you prefer a quick course or a scenic course?
