Truro Half Marathon organisers need local businesses to sponsor key event
Tuesday 16th August, 2022
Organisers of this year’s Truro Half Marathon are looking for businesses to sponsor this key event in the city’s sporting calendar.
The race takes place on September 18 after a three-year
break and is expected to attract more than 450 runners from Cornwall and
Truro Running Club organises the half marathon and is
calling on local firms to offer their support.
Club secretary Nigel Knuckey said: “It brings a real buzz to
the city centre and creates additional footfall for retail and hospitality
“We would welcome the support of local businesses to secure
this important event for Truro. Firms can even put forward a corporate team.”
The half marathon starts on Lemon Quay. Runners make a
circuit of the city’s streets, before heading off through Newham, Callenick,
Feock, Playing Place and Porth Kea, before returning to the city
centre through Newham.
