This should be a great race for all the family to enjoy together as we have secured a local Treasure Trail Company to provide a fun treasure trail children to participate in whilst the main races are on all in close proximity to the Start/Finish area at Moreton Morrell College. The Treasure Trail will be a free fun event for children and there are prizes for all participants as well as a special winners prize. This will start just after the main race and the aim is to complete the trail before the first 10km finisher arrives ...so it will be an exciting challenge.
Hi again to everyone and thanks again for all comments, sorry you couldn't make it Mick n Phil, November we'll have a place for you again just email.
Goody bag contents - a banana, a naked oat/fruit bar, a bottle of water, a £5 voucher (which would buy a pair of socks or towards something more from Run Breeze.com) and the momento which was a 500ml plastic sports bottle with the race title on for use on a bike or gym etc....we wanted something that could be used again and again so we trialled it and majority of runners loved the bottle from what we were told.
We have probably got one of the cheapest half marathons around at £12/ £14 and we have a huge amount of people who do not want a t-shirt so we decided not to do a t-shirt to keep the cost down and just run an enjoyable race at a minimum cost with all the proceeds going towards our not for profit company 'kids run free' we did think that the momento and a few items to eat and drink plus the £5 voucher was fair and so many runners thanked us for this which was lovely.
Our description of this race will be changed for November and our wording of goody bag will be changed to momento and we will keep the fee the same and see how that works for November along with our other changes already mentioned in comments above.
It is very good for our race to be promoted well so we aim to change it and work towards it being as great as we can possibly make it....
We think it's a little bit different being at the airfield and we enjoy every minute of putting it together,
