The Wright Hassall Regency 10k - POSTPONED
Founded in 2004, this event is organised by volunteers from Leamington Round Table, and supported by Spa Striders and other local groups such as 41 Club and Kids Run Free. Now attracting around 2,500 runners each year, over £350,000 has been raised to date.
Running costs are generously supported by our title sponsor, Wright Hassall - a leading local law firm. Proceeds are used to help local good causes such as the homeless, community youth groups and school projects.
This event is intended to be inclusive and is open to all ranges of ability and experience; from novices through to club runners. Finish times range from over 1 hour 30 mins down to 32 minutes. Entrant ages range from 15 years (minimum allowed) to some over 75. We also encourage teams to enter e.g. Running Clubs or Corporate, and often have around 70 teams entered. Great for team spirit!
NOTE - This is the rescheduled event from 29th March 2020. Please see the additional note below for further details.

The race starts at Newbold Terrace East and heads in an anti-clockwise direction around Newbold Comyn (where the golf course used to be), before heading back into Royal Leamington Spa town centre, taking in Victoria Park and Jephson Gardens. The finish area is at Mill Gardens, where you will be greeted by large crowds of spectators.
The course is a combination of paved surface and bridleways. All the road sections of the course are closed to traffic, making this both a safe and quick course to get around. Click here for the course map.
There will be 217 FREE CAR PARKING SPACES at Riverside House off Mill Hill (CV32 5HZ) between 8.00am and 12.30pm. Parking is available on the roads surrounding the start and finish area. Please consider local residents and park only where it is safe and legal to do so.
Do not park on the course itself. Be aware that Leamington Spa now has pay parking. Free parking is mostly available south of the river. For more details, visit Warwick District Council parking info. Click map below to expand image.
After careful consideration and in the interests of public health, we have taken the difficult decision to postpone this year’s event.
We recognise this news may be disappointing for those taking part, as it is for us, and we sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this may cause to runners, supporters and sponsors alike. We will email all runners and others stakeholders in the coming days, and post an update on our website and social media channels.
Every runner with a place in the 2020 Wright Hassall Regency 10k Run will have their entry automatically moved to the rescheduled date, 20 September 2020. There is no further action for runners to take at this time.
All runners who have a place for the 2020 event and who choose not to take part (or are unable to do so) have the option to transfer their entry to someone they know (see www.regency10k.co.uk for details on how to do this). As all proceeds from the event go to local good causes, such as the homeless and local community groups, we hope that runners will support a decision not to automatically issue refunds.
First-hand event reviews from people who’ve been there, done that and got the breathable T-shirt, really help everyone choose their next event.
Write a review and you’ll be entered into a monthly draw to win a pair of running shoes of your choice from Pro:Direct Running.
