Twice the fun for runners as Alcester 10k doubles up for 2022

<b>LACE up your running shoes as Alcester gets ready to double up on its popular 10k run.

The event is organised by Raceways Events, a community interest company, who are also the organisers of the Leamington Spa Half Marathon.

The aim is to involve the community as much as possible through sponsorship, volunteer groups and businesses whilst raising funds for their charity Marathon Kids UK.

After a triumphant post-pandemic return last October, and due to local popular demand, the much loved Alcester 10k will become a two race series in 2022.

It means the very first ‘summer’ edition of the race will be held on Sunday, May 29, with the traditional autumn run completing the series in October.

Raceways events manager Sam Taylor said “We are so excited to bring this new format of our longest running event to Alcester.

“There’s already been such a great response to the event, and we can’t wait to see it in action.

“After a really tough few years, it’s fantastic to finally see our events happening again.”

All event finishers will receive a race T-shirt and medal at the finish line – and for those who finish both the summer and autumn races, the medals will combine into one stylish commemorative souvenir for the Alcester 10K Series.

As with all of Raceways’ events, there will be a children’s 1km fun run which will be free to enter.
