Anais' Two Castle's Run

Anais after completing the Two Castles 10km runFor the 2012-13 Rotary year, the Club are Hosting Ambassadorial Scholar Anais Salson from France. Anais is studying for a Masters Degree at the University of Warwick and performed an amazing service on behalf of the Bedworth Rotary Club by representing us in the Two Castles' Run - a 10km run between Warwick and Kenilworth Castles - on Sunday 9th June. Anais has been sponsored by almost every member of the Club, among others, with all the money going to The Rotary Wheel Appeal - one of our charities for the year. Anais completed the 10km is 57 minutes and 21 seconds, achieving her personal target of finishing in less than an hour. There is an online fundraising page still available if you would like to add to Anais' sponsorship. Anais approached local shops and businesses for sponsorship. You can see the ones that agreed to support her and a little about her build up to the 10km run in her blog.

Two Castles team for 2013


Five members of the Bedworth Rotary Club, supported by Toichiro Sugiura (another Rotary Scholarship Student), were involved in the event in a different way. They organised the official Race Car Park near the finish line in Abbey Fields. The objective was to provide safe and secure parking for as many of the participants and their supportors as possible - with the hope of a donation to the Club's charity fund being the only reward. Some people must have appreciated our efforts as we collected £314.07 in donations.

Thank you to everyone and congratulations to Anais!
