Raceways is a successful community interest company organising running events which 1000’s of adults and children have participated in over the years.
Seeing a need to create opportunities to inspire children to also run, founders Martine Verweij and Catherine O’Carroll knew that their community events had to be more accessible and inclusive and the challenge was that it had to be more regular and free for all children to take part….a big ask!
Making this their personal mission, in 2010 the charity Kids Run Free, rebranding as Marathon Kids UK in 2020.
Raceways were incredibly proud to begin supporting The Myton Hospices as charity partners for the Leamington Spa Half Marathon, helping to raise funds and awareness of this incredibly important local charity. We are also huge supporters of Friends of Isaac’s Food Bank as our charity partners for the Redditch Kingfisher 10K!
Our challenge at Raceways is to bring together the local community (runners, spectators, volunteers, local business sponsors), raising money and awareness for our charity partners.
We appreciate your taking part in our events as your fees are directly helping to transform the wellbeing of our communities!
Set in the heart of Warwickshire, this half marathon takes in the beautiful surroundings and countryside of the historic spa town, Royal Leamington Spa.
We are proud supporters of the Myton Hospices as our charity partners!
We are thrilled to announce the Alcester 10k is back for its tenth year on Sunday 6th October 2024! Starting and finishing in the beautiful market town of Alcester near Stratford Upon Avon it’s a race not to be missed!
