Raceways Moreton Morrell School's Out

Hello Everyone,

On Saturday 10th August Raceways Events hosted the annual School’s Out 10km & 20km road races at Moreton Morrell in Warwickshire. At 10am just under 200 runners took to the roads to enjoy the rolling course.

The 10km runners rush past the spectacular Moreton Hall

It was a lovely morning with the sun peeking out from behind the clouds and very little breeze creating perfect conditions for a good race. The scenic challenging course was well received, with many runners relishing the battle with the final climb at 9km.

The 20km runners make their way down the scenic drive

Our lovely assistant Niamh Daly helped to give out
goody bags to our finishers
Personalised mementos for each runner

The Kids Fun Run kicked off just before the main events with over 30 kids taking part it was our busiest Fun Run to date! The children thoroughly enjoyed the goody bags which we complete with sports masks from Mask Arade, music lessons from Gail Bater and toys from Stone the Crows - all kindly donated in aid of Kids Run Free


All runners completed the course posting some excellent times and the finishers got to enjoy some delicious Eat Natural bars, fruit from Wild and Free and personalised mementos. A special mention must go to our 20km winner Rob Forbes who completed the whole course with son Heath Forbes in a pushchair!
