Basingstoke Half Marathon hits the ground running

Basingstoke Half Marathon

Newbury Building Society staff hosted a stall at the popular Basingstoke Half Marathon event on Sunday 5 October 2014, which included an inflatable obstacle course and a lucky dip to raise money for St. Michaels Hospice in Basingstoke. The Society also supplied the brave runners with some much needed refreshments after the race was completed.

The race itself is well known for its hilly, one-lap route, challenging new and experienced runners of all ages. It offers fantastic views of the Hampshire countryside along the way as each participant is pushed on by friendly support across a course more than 13 miles in length. Runners set off from, and aim to finish at, Hackwood Road next to the War Memorial Park in the town centre.

Diane Long, Business Manager said: “We arrived at 8am to a cold morning and frost on the grass. However, slowly but surely, the cold weather disappeared and we were lucky to enjoy a gloriously sunny day. We gave out over 200 bags to both spectators and runners, which contained some marketing giveaways and a bottle of water. These were especially well received at the end of the race. The inflatable obstacle course was another great success this year and kept the staff busy for the entire day. The lucky dip was popular with a lot of children and we also gave out Barry bear tattoos, which represents the society’s mascot, Barry bear.’

In total, the whole team raised £286.38 for St Michael’s Hospice, which we will be presenting to the charity at the forthcoming presentation evening on 15th October at Sherfield School.
