Time running out for half marathon entries as appeal goes out for volunteers

Torbay Weekly

Organisers of the postponed Ocean Healthcare Torbay Half Marathon and 10k have issued a final call out for runners to sign up before the deadline on September 6.

Organised by Torbay Athletic Club, and sponsored by local nursing and care agency Ocean Healthcare, the run attracts runners from all over the country. This year the event - on Sunday September 12 - offers both a half marathon or a 10k.

It donates to local charities and other sports clubs thanks to generous sponsorship from local companies including Kitsons, Sweatshop Running, Enterprise Bays Brewery and Ocean BMW.

This year, more than ever, support is needed from volunteers.

“We need marshalls to support the event. We only need help for a few hours from 7.45am. Our marshals love to cheer everyone along and always enjoy it" said Race Director Greg Fine.

Those interested are urged to email info@torbayhalfmarathon.co.uk. To sign up for the event go to: www.torbayhalfmarathon.co.uk
