We’re getting really excited in the fundraising team, on Sunday 24 March over 4,000 runners will take to the streets of Colchester and run the Colchester Half Marathon. The start and finish line is at Weston Homes Community Stadium, almost a stone’s throw away from The Headway Centre.
Returning for its ninth year, it has firmly established itself as one of the biggest and best races in the region. Organised by a group of dedicated volunteers from Colchester Round Table, alongside many individuals from in and around Colchester, it really is a fantastic community effort with people working tirelessly throughout the year to ensure a great race day experience.
Headway Essex has been involved with this event for years and manned one of the official water stations, but this year Headway Essex has been chosen as one of the benefitting charities and will receive a share of the income raised this year and in 2020.
As a partnership charity we’ve been given 20 guaranteed entry places, all we ask is that you donate/raise £30 and we’ll register for you. In return you’ll receive a Headway Essex technical running vest and a massive cheer on the day. If you’re up for a challenge please get in touch with the fundraising team to register your interest by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 01206 547 616.
If that sounds too energetic then why not join us on the day and help us marshal the event. We need to recruit 100 people to help, if this sounds more your cup of tea please get in touch with us at email@example.com or calling 01206 547 616.
Whichever option you choose it’s guaranteed to be an amazing and rewarding experience being part of such a large iconic event.
