Minehead Half-Marathon and 10k Race
12 May 2019 - 11:00 am - 5:00 pm
The Minehead half-marathon is set to return to the town on Sunday, 12 May 2019, after an absence of more than 20 years!
The reinstated race – along with a new 10k run – will start at 11am in Minehead Esplanade and follow a looped circular route which has been marked out so that the runners will be going in opposite directions, increasing the fun for participants and spectators alike.
The event is being organised by a team from Kingspan Water & Energy, based locally in Wiliton. The company is sponsoring both runs, including cash prizes for first, second and third male and female finishers, prizes for under-40s and over-40s age categories, and medals for everyone who completes the course. Kingspan staff will be marshalling the route on the day.
All proceeds will go to Elliot’s Touch, a Watchet-based charity which aims to raise awareness of mitochondria disease and genetic heart disease in babies and infants.
More information, as well as pre-event registration for runners is available at https://kingspanhalfmarathonand10k.eventbrite.co.uk, or go to the “Kingspan Water and Energy” Facebook page, and click on the Events tab.
