The Divorce Day Marathon (and Half) Fundraiser

Coalport, Telford, Shropshire

Organiser's Description

Runners will start the race married to their partner (parnters will be randomly selected, or if you really want to run with someone we can be bribed) and you will start off running together, having tied the knot. The route will take in part of the Silkin Way, Rough Park and the Valley of Ironbridge on a mixture of paths and tracks. The marathon will be 3 laps and the half will be 2 laps. After completing your first lap for the half marathon or second lap for the full marathon, you’ll go your own separate ways - one of you running on in the same direction, and the other in reverse. Will you talk to your partner half way round the route - that’s your choice!

Fancy dress is highly recommended - top hats and tiaras should really be mandatory! The race will start with speeches and confetti. All profits from this race will go towards enabling us to purchase a AED defibrillator to increase your safety when you run with us. From Coalport Village Hall.
