Two Castles

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?
