Cathedral to Castle Run

We are pleased to announce that in conjunction with the Rotary Clubs of Lichfield, Tamworth and Tamworth Anker, Lichfield St Chad is organising a brand new 10 mile multi-terrain running event starting at the Cathedral and finishing at Tamworth Castle on 9th  April. 

The route over multiple types of terrain, actually starts in Beacon Park, Lichfield, and finishes in the grounds of Tamworth Castle.  More details can be seen on the website at

We have been overwhelmed at the response to the event, with all 500 places being taken up within 48 hours of being available.  The runners are encouraged to raise money for a charity(s) of their choice, or alternatively donate to their local Rotary Club Community Charity funds.

This event would not take place without the collaboration of the four Rotary Clubs, Local Authorities and particularly for the help and expertise given by UK Athletics, and hopefully following the success of this inaugural event it is hoped to increase the number of runners to at least 2,000 for the 2018 event.

Lichfield St Chad needs to provide twenty-five marshals for ‘our’ section of the race in Lichfield (07.00 – 10.00 hrs) can you help, or alternatively just come along and cheer on the runners?
