Runners will start off from Beacon Park at 9am before finishing in the grounds of Tamworth Castle where a fun day will also take place.

The ten mile route will cover a range of terrains, including roads, tracks and towpaths.

Race director Kyle Raffo said: “So much time and effort has gone into organising this event.

“It has been a major undertaking, from getting the route mapped out and approved to managing the hundreds of runners and volunteers who will be taking part on the day.

“We’re really excited to see it all come together as people take advantage of this unique opportunity to run from Lichfield Cathedral, through otherwise restricted MoD land, to Tamworth Castle.

“Demand for the event was incredibly high and we know lots of people were disappointed to have missed out on a place.

“It should be a great day, which will hopefully raise thousands of pounds for charity and become a well-known annual event.

“We invite people to come along to the family fun day in the Castle Grounds where they can enjoy the activities and entertainment on offer and give the runners a big cheer as they cross the finish line.”

The Cathedral to Castle Run is the first event to be organised jointly by the Rotary clubs of Tamworth, Tamworth Anker, Lichfield and Lichfield St Chad.
