Running the PR for the Redbrik Chesterfield Half Marathon
We are delighted to announce that we have successfully been appointed as the PR agency for the Redbrik Chesterfield Half Marathon, following a successful campaign for the event in 2017.
This year’s event is set to be bigger and better than ever, so we are thrilled to be on board.
New features include a later start time, additional races and an inaugural Wellbeing Challenge.
The event, which is backed by Chesterfield Borough Council, will take place on Sunday 21 October 2018, starting at 9.30am in Queen’s Park, Chesterfield, with our client Redbrik returning as headline sponsor for the second year of its five-year sponsorship deal.
Chesterfield-based charity Ashgate Hospicecare and North Anston-based Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice will be charity partners of the 2018 race following a hugely successful inaugural event in 2017, which raised more than £50,000 for good causes.
More than 800 runners signed up for the first Redbrik Chesterfield Half Marathon in 2017, with event organisers hoping for a four-figure sign-up total this year.
The 2018 event schedule is bolstered by an additional five-mile challenge, which will take place in tandem with the Half Marathon along with a Fun Run in the park. There will also be a ‘Wellbeing Challenge’, a team entry event that will promote healthy living – details for which will be released in due course.
In addition to the launch event, the event’s charity partners will be holding a pop up shop on Saturday 27th January 9am until 4pm at Redbrik’s lettings office on Glumangate, Chesterfield.
This will give prospective charity runners the opportunity to meet representatives from Ashgate Hospicecare and Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice and receive fundraising tips and advice, as well as the chance to sign up to the Half Marathon and benefit from the early bird sign up discount, which expires on 31st January.
Applications for the 2018 Redbrik Chesterfield Half Marathon are now open – visit www.redbrikchesterfieldhalf.com for full details.
