Marshalling in Northampton

We were delighted to support this community event.

We were delighted to support the Northampton Half Marathon

A small team of volunteers from Age UK Northamptonshire helped keep thousands of runners safely on course during this fantastic community event on Sunday 26th September.  We were one of about six charities providing marshalls along the 13.1 miles around Northampton and into the countryside and back.  It was great to join in such a high profile community event in Northampton.

Simon Hollis from organisers Go Beyond Challenge.

Race Director Simon Hollis and his team at Go Beyond Challenge work hard to make the annual event a hugely enjoyable day, bringing together many local  organisations to make it such a success.  Runners get to see the many delights of historic Northampton town centre, as well as the beautiful countryside to the south east of the town, finishing in the lovely grounds of Delapre Abbey.

The fantastic choir raised all our spirits on the day!

The Wellingborough Gospel Choir did a brilliant job of raising our spirits on the day.  It was very cheering to see them there at the finish!

Why not enter next year's Northampton Half Marathon and raise funds for Age UK Northamptonshire!  We'd love to hear from you if you're thinking of running a half marathon, or even a marathon, in 2022.  We can provide you with a branded running vest and lots of support!
