Regiment race moves to east end

The annual Regiment road race is about to change course, and this time athletes will be running for charity.

The 10K run has been moved to St George's from a course that previously started and finished at Warwick Camp.

For the first time the event will be used to raise funds for good causes, with cancer care charity Pals the first beneficiary.

“It's also the last official race before the May 24th half marathon, so it's a good opportunity for people to get the miles in before the big race,” said RBR orderly room clerk Corporal Chris Matvey, a joint race director with Sergeant Major James Self.

The RBR Charity Breakfast Run, which starts at 9am on Sunday at the Royal Artillery Association in Grenadier Lane, includes a 3k junior race, a 5k walk, and a 10k run with top prizes including two night stays at the Fairmont Southampton, champagne and RBR T-shirts.

Codfish breakfasts, costing $12 with a race number and $15 without, will also be available at the RAA.

Regiment Adjutant Captain Duncan Simons said: “The RBR is part of the community we serve and we wanted a family event that will also assist a charity with the valuable work they do.”
