With just over four months to go until this year’s Chichester Half Marathon, race organisers are laying down a challenge for Chichester workplaces.
Chichester’s ‘multi terrain’ half marathon is now in its 3rd year and this year’s race will take place on Sunday 12th of October.
The organisers are continually looking to enhance the runners’ race experience and for 2014 they are launching a ‘Works Trophy’.
Any organisation or business can enter as many people as they wish, (male and female) to compete for the Trophy and the first three finishers on race day will be the scoring team. Each workplace registering five or more runners will receive a visit from one of the organisers who will provide a complimentary training workshop. Any business signing up more than 10 runners will also get a free place thrown in.
The Chichester Half Marathon is a challenging and beautiful ‘multi-terrain’ half marathon, which takes in the major City Centre sights and landmarks as well as spectacular rural scenery. The terrain is a good mixture of road, paths, cycle tracks and cross country.The Race is managed by Chichester District Council and Children on the Edge, a local based charity helping vulnerable children across the globe.
If running really isn’t for you but you’d like to be involved in a great event which brings the community together, then think about volunteering. Roles include marshalling at different points along the race route; manning water tables and handing out medals and goodie bags at the finish. Just contact Amy Chamberlain by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 01243 534797.
Prices are £24 for EA affiliated club members and £26 for unattached and other runners. You can sign up at www.chichesterhalfmarathon.co.uk. Individuals signing up can expect a Chi-half specific training plan to be available on the website by mid June.
Once Work Trophy teams are registered, just e-mail email@example.com with your team name and a list of competitors. May the best business win!
