We are looking forward to the anticipated return of the Fleet Half Marathon in just over a week’s time, on Sunday March 17th. Happily sporting the alias of “The Pre-London Half Marathon”, this is the ideal warm-up for London runners.
We’re proud to return as sponsors of this fantastic fundraising event, as we are every year, with proceeds going to both local and national charities, with a new charity this year of Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance. We also enjoy some involvement, with three of our own runners participating in this event. Fleet Half Marathon has been running for an impressive number of years, with the clock starting originally in 1982. It is a massive community event for Fleet, so the town centre will be thriving with supporters and Fleet Road closed to traffic for part of the day. The event is highly professional, having been organised by experienced runners, boasting professional photography from RandR Photos Ltd, as well as medical support.
The runners start at Calthorpe Park Race Village, going past our office on Fleet Road twice, when taking the first and fourth mile, so feel free to come and join us whilst we cheer on our team! No rain is (currently) predicted on the day, so the weather should be fairly pleasant and, of course, there is the opportunity to do a little shopping, or perhaps enjoy one of the local restaurants or pubs along the route.
The event starts from 10:30am on the day, with a Junior Mini Mile for 8-16 year-olds starting at 10.45am. We look forward to seeing you there!
