The event is certainly one of the more unusual fundraising events we have seen over the years, and the 2019 event was the 10th year fundraisers pulled on their running shoes for this pub crawl with a twist!
The team of runners make their way from Warwick’s Market Square to Leamington Spa – this year the route took them into The Thomas Lloyd, the Tilted Wig, the Zetland Arms, The Punch Bowl, The Roebuck Inn, New Bowling Green, The Oak, the Milwright Arms, the Lord Nelson, The Elephant & Castle, The Fat Pug, The Star & Garter and finishing in Jephson’s Bar.
Tom Keeling, who helps to organise the boozy fundraiser, said:
The Emscote Run wasn’t something we did for charity for the first four years, but then we started charging an entry fee which would be paid as a donation directly to Myton and it’s grown from there. I’d personally like to thank all the people who take part in the run every year; although they don’t need much encouragement to do so as it’s the best day/night of the year! We get a huge chunk of the donations through them and their families which really helps generate the energy for the event.
Also, a massive thanks from all of us, to the pubs and the people we meet whilst on the run, who seem to be getting more and more supportive each year! Well done to Lucas King who was awarded the gold medal for his outstanding fundraising efforts on the night. A special mention also goes to Stu James, who could not participate this year, but attended the first hurdle to buy a round for everyone.
Let's take a look back through the years!
We want to thank everyone who has taken part in The Emscote Run over the years and to everyone who has helped them to raise over £3,000 for Myton in that time!
