Sutton firm backs charity run between famous landmarks


Sutton Coldfield based firm, Jordan Financial Management, have announced their backing of a charity run from Lichfield Cathedral to Tamworth Castle.

Jordan Financial Management, Sutton 's longest established independent financial advisers, is one of the sponsors behind this year 's Rotary Cathedral to Castle run, a challenging ten-mile multi terrain charity event from Lichfield to Tamworth.

The run, which takes place on Sunday 26 September, follows a challenging route from Beacon Park in the shadow of Lichfield Cathedral. Taking in both streets and countryside paths, the run will finish up in the Castle Grounds in Tamworth town centre.

Managing director Mike Jordan said: “We are really proud to be backing this brilliant event, which raises funds for lots of different charities in the region.

“This is an event that starts right in the heart of Lichfield and raises money for all kinds of local charities, including local food banks and St Giles Hospice, so we really wanted to help get it off the ground in such a challenging year.

“It has been an incredibly hard couple of years for fund-raising events like this, with so many being cancelled, so I take my hat off to the volunteers from Rotary who have put this together.

“The run was postponed last year because of the pandemic but has sold out this year - which reflects the incredible effort that has gone into making it happen and the determination of local runners to get involved. ”

In light of Covid concerns, the event 's organisers have set up a staggered start for entrants.

For their £25 entry fee, runners get a race number and timing chip, a T-shirt, a Goodie bag on completion and medal.

Organisers will also lay on water stations along the route, as well as coach transport from Tamworth to Lichfield to enable entrants to park near the finish line.
