English Half Marathon 2017

Sunday 17th September 2017

We’re looking for runners of any ability to join Team Rocco this September in the English Half Marathon and 10km Road Race.

EHM 2016

Once again, St. Rocco’s has places in both the half marathon and 10k Road Race, and these places free to anyone who would like to represent St. Rocco’s and help us to raise vital funds to help us support our patients and families.

All we ask for in return for a half marathon place is that you pledge to raise a minimum sponsorship target of £200, and for a 10k the minimum sponsorship is £150.

To sign up contact Katie in our Fundraising Team, on 01925 575 780 or email katielawson@stroccos.org.uk

What?

This year, the English Half Marathon will begin at Bank Park, leading onto the Cantilever Bridge, and looping around Grappenhall before taking you back over the bridge, into the town centre and through the Wolves Stadium before finishing at the Golden Gates!

The 10K Road Race follows a similar route, incorporating Bridge Foot, the Town Centre and Golden Gates, and places for both events are available to you.

Where?

Warrington Town

When?

Sunday 17th September 2017

Why?

To raise money for St. Rocco’s Hospice which cares for people with life-limiting illnesses in Warrington. St. Rocco’s offers care and support for patients and families through our Vitality Centre, our inpatient unit, as well as through our Hospice at Home and Family Support services. Our care is free to our patients and families but as a registered charity we rely on the local community for over 75% of our funding, so taking part in the English Half Marathon and raising sponsorship is a great way to help us to support our patients and their families!

Anything Else?

Once you have registered and have been allocated a place, you will receive Fundraising Pack including an official St. Rocco’s running vest and various fundraising materials. The fundraising team will also be on hand leading up to the event to support you as much as necessary with your fundraising.

All Rocco’s Runners will also receive a finishers T-shirt and medal! We will also be there on the day to show our support and cheer you on!
