    When we told Pickle we were going for a day out to a Castle – he had no idea what to expect. In his head, we were going to a bouncy castle. Imagine seeing his face when he was actually confronted with the mightily impressive Warwick Castle, and it’s gorgeous grounds. read more

  • Warwick Castle running

    How soon is too soon for a 10km?

    Even as I typed the title for this blog post, I already knew the answer to my own question. To explain: I just received an email alerting me to the registration opening date for the biggest local 10km run in the racing calendar around here: The Two Castles.

    It’s a great event! You start the run at Warwick Castle, where literally thousands of runners line up ready for the 10 kilometres of Warwickshire countryside ahead, and you ultimately finish at Kenilworth Castle, where a medal, your loved ones and a sweaty bus awaits to take you back to your car at Warwick. I think I’ve completed this event a couple of times now, and I’ve always enjoyed it. There’s a little bit of a hill climb at the end just to keep things interesting! The best bit is when you run past The Saxon Mill pub as they usually have staff outside with massive buckets of cut up oranges – my favourite running snack!
