Raise money for Grace Research Fund!

28 February 2014

Sign up to the Two Castles Run in June to support Coventry City's nominated charity, the Grace Research Fund...

A group of runners will be raising money for a local charity, which funds research into premature births, at an event this June.

The Grace Research Fund will have 35 runners raising money for the charity in the Two Castles Run and is hoping even more will sign up when entries open on March 1.

The runners will be completing the 10km route beginning in the central courtyard of Warwick Castle and finishing in the walls of Kenilworth Castle in what will be the 32nd annual staging of the event. 

The Grace Research Fund is Coventry City’s nominated charity for the season with the charity’s name adorned on the first team’s shirts this season.

All of the money the runners raise will be going directly to the charity, which funds research into the causes of premature births and the best forms of neonatal care. 

CCFC marketing manager Stacie McDermott hopes even more runners will sign-up to support the Grace Research Fund.

She said: “It’s such a great cause and the run is a fun way of raising money and the profile of the charity. Over the past few months, we’ve got to know the Grace Research Fund really well and the fantastic work they do.

“It would be great to see more people signing up to run for them at the Two Castles Run at what should be a great event.”

The run will take place on June 8 with entry opening on Saturday, March 1. All participants looking to run for the Grace Research Fund should email Charlotte Maytum at, or call or text 07884 733047, with your name and contact details including a mobile number.
