Fun Run - 2pm

 

As you may have noticed, the weather forecast currently has potential for strong winds, so we wish to send out a few messages on how this will affect the Winchester Half Marathon. In order to keep everyone safe the Fun Run is no longer going ahead, as the wind is forecast to increase in the afternoon. Everyone participating in this event has been contacted with the respective options in regards to refunds or transfers to next years event. Please feel free to come and support the Half Marathon runners in the morning.

 

We are happy to inform you the Winchester Half Marathon is still going ahead and we are very excited to see everyone on the day.

 

WE GOT THE POWER!

WE ARE EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE THAT UTILITA ENERGY WILL BE OUR OFFICIAL PARTNER!

This race will be chip timed and participants will receive a t-shirt from Utilita, medal and goody bag! 

The Winchester Fun Run is open to all ages from 2 to 102 years old and this year we are excited to announce Utilita are going to be our official Fun Run partners!
Walk, jog, run, fancy dress or with the whole family the Fun Run is a great race through the city centre of Winchester. 
Taking place on Sunday 23rd September 2018, after the Winchester Half Marathon, the race is fully chip-timed and all participants receive a t-shirt from Utilita, medal and goody bag! 
The Fun Run aims to encourage everyone to join in with the event no matter your fitness level or experience. Start your running journey and maybe next year you'll be doing the Half Marathon! 
The race starts at 2pm and is £5 per person. Please note that children aged under 8 years of age must be accompanied by a paying adult running with the child. 

At just under a kilometre long, (~880m long), this distance is perfect for those with children or those starting their running journey. 

Winchester Cathedral has kindly allowed us access to parts of their grounds not usually accessible by the public - so this is an exciting part of the route! 

Please note that this fun run route is multi terrain as the route through the Cathedral grounds is on grass which is fairly soft. 

It'll be a great experience for young runners as the route starts and finishes under the same gantry as the adult half marathon runners!  

Come down and experience the excitement with our new partner Utilita!!

Chandler’s Ford-based Utilita Energy, one of Which?’s Top 5 energy suppliers for customer satisfaction in 2018, installed Britain’s first ever Smart Meter back in 2008 – when it was originally based here in Moorside Road, Winchester.

Since then it has moved down the M3 to a brand-new HQ in Eastleigh. It has more than trebled its number of customers in three years to nearly 700,000 – and now has nearly 2,000 staff in 11 locations across the UK.

Utilita's smart meters show you the amount of energy you use in real-time and how much you are spending in pounds and pence - giving you total control over your energy. Utilita was also Britain’s first challenger to the Big Six and estimates it has saved its customers more than £500m since 2010.

Race packs for the Fun Run will be able to be picked up from the Winchester Guildhall on the race weekend (Sat 22nd Sept from the Courtyard room 11am-1pm; or Sun 23rd Sept from the Bapsy Hall from 8am onwards). 

PLEASE NOTE THAT CHILDREN AGED UNDER 8 YEARS OF AGE MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY A PAYING ADULT RUNNING WITH THE CHILD.
