The 7th annual English Half Marathon (EHM) takes place on Sunday 20th September. With a new course that incorporates many of Warrington’s landmarks including the Golden Gates, Halliwell Jones Stadium and the Cultural Quarter, it promises to showcase Warrington at its best. EHM also fits into the wider Warrington Festival of Sports and Culture, which will see the town activated with music, heritage and community events throughout September.
This year, Warrington & Co. and Contest Sports are launching a NEW Corporate Challenge for local businesses to pit themselves against colleagues, senior staff and competitors whilst empowering their employees to become more active and work towards a common goal.
Incorporating the Half Marathon and 10K routes, each company that enters the Warrington & Co. Corporate Challenge will be placed into a league table, with points awarded under the following categories:
+ Top 3 finishers
+ Most money raised for charity
+ Best Fancy Dress Theme
+ Average Team Time
There will be a number of spot prizes throughout the challenge – entry into prize draws and social runs, best individual fundraiser and personal achievement awards.
Corporate Challenge participants will receive a commemorative Warrington & Co. Challenge Medal and Race T-Shirt, access to pre and post-race hospitality and support from a team of experts to provide training programmes for beginner, intermediate and advanced levels.
Employers will also receive the option to subsidise their employee’s entry fees, have their logo’s included on marketing materials and company details included in press releases and social media posts. There will also be opportunities to display banners along the route.
Steve Park, Warrington & Co. Managing Director said,
“Warrington & Co are proud to be working with Contest Sports to establish the new Corporate Challenge as part of the famous English Half Marathon. This is a fantastic opportunity for businesses in the region to get their name out there, feed their competitive appetite and have some fun. I have no doubt that this will be successful event and I look forward to welcoming all businesses on the day.”
