Half marathon date set for September
12:20pm Monday 18th February 2013 in News
GET set for the half marathon after organisers confirmed the event will return to the town on September 8.
The Spire Healthcare English Half Marathon has attracted runners from all over the UK and overseas and is set for its fifth year with organisers promising it will be ‘bigger and better than ever before’.
Rob Griffiths, event director, said: "As soon as last years race finished we struck into action to develop our 2013 vision.
“We have reached out to many of our runners and local stakeholders to understand what type of event people want.
“It is now very much becoming a race for the people, designed by the people."
Early bird entrants can sign up for £20 in February and organisers hope this year’s event will include the whole town.
Mr Griffiths said: "A key focus this year will be getting out into the community - encouraging people to run, encouraging local causes to use the event to enable fundraising and making the whole town to line the streets to support the inspirational runners."
