Kenilworth is gearing up for the May Day Mile and Schools Race which will return on May 1 with young runners and local schools competing for top honours.
Organised by Kenilworth Runners, in collaboration with Warwick District Council, the event promises to be a fun-filled morning for young runners of all abilities.
The May Day Mile, starting at 9am in Abbey Fields, is a family fun run that covers a distance of one mile.
The run is open to all ages and abilities, and every finisher will receive a medal.
In addition, prizes will be awarded to the first, second and third boy and girl under 15 years old. Although well marshalled, young runners will require a responsible adult to run with them.
At 9.30am, the Schools Challenge Race will kick off, featuring Year 5 and 6 children from local schools.
The one mile race will include an overall team trophy presented to the winning school, as well as individual prizes for the top runners.
The Schools Challenge Race promises to be a closely contested event, with 2022 winners Crackley Hall School the team to beat.
The event will take place in Abbey Fields providing a scenic and challenging backdrop for the runners.
Entry and more information is available online, so sign up now and get ready to run.
