Hudgell Solicitors delighted to become main sponsors of Humber Bridge Half Marathon for next three years

Humber Half Marathon 2016 logo


Hudgell Solicitors are delighted to have become the main sponsors for the Humber Bridge Half Marathon for the next three years.

Our partnership with the event – now in its 17th year – has been announced today, as entries have opened for 2016.

Today marks 200 days until the 2016 race on Sunday, June 26, with entrants able to claim a place at a discounted rate if they sign up before the end of the year.

It follows a record breaking year in 2015, which saw more than 2,100 runners raise a total of £38,000 for charities across the region.

Race director John Curry, of Hull Rotary Club, which runs the event with Barton Rotary Club and The Smile Foundation, said he was delighted to have extra support for 2016, on top of many long-standing business supporters.

“It is really tremendous to have secured extra support from a business of the standing of Hudgell Solicitors, who importantly have not only committed to back us for one year, but for three, which will help us with long-term planning to grow the event significantly,” he said.

“It was fantastic to achieve a record number of runners this year, as we had more than 2,100 entries, but we feel we can achieve much bigger numbers. We see other races with many more runners, but our event is better, and our setting at the Humber Bridge can’t be beaten.

“Those that do take part always say what a great half marathon it is, how well organised it is, how friendly it is, and how it is great value for money.

“We are confident that with this new support, we’ll start competing with some of the more popular races of similar length which enjoy higher runner numbers, but don’t have a course to match ours, or a stunning landmark to base it around as we have.”

Neil Hudgell, managing director of Hudgell Solicitors, is a keen runner himself and has already put his name down to take part in the 13.1 miles run, along with a number of his staff.

“The Humber Bridge Half Marathon has a reputation for being a great, challenging sporting event which is competed in a fantastic spirit, so we are delighted to be involved,” he said.

“Through our community Trust, a big focus is placed on bringing communities together and encouraging sporting participation, and this event does this by uniting the two sides of the Humber. “We agree with the organisers that it has great potential to attract bigger runner numbers in the years to come, and with it more visitors to Hull, so we are excited to be involved.

“We wanted to give our long-term support as we know how hard volunteers have worked over many years to make this event what it is today. Hopefully our support will help take it to the next level, bring more runners, raise the event’s profile and ultimately raise more money for good causes.”

Although details of new additions to the 2016 event are to be released in the New Year, Andy Barber, charity manager at the Smile Foundation, says it will include bigger and better prizes for runners, and new elements to ensure there is a hub of activity around the Half Marathon weekend.

“Knowing we have the extra support from Hudgell Solicitors has helped us look at the event and really focus on building around what we already have, and that is an excellent race which is already very popular and well respected,” he said.

“We will be announcing new elements this year which will hopefully help create a buzz around the entire Half Marathon weekend, and will also bring more elite runners from across the country to take part.

“We want people from across the county to view the Humber Bridge Half Marathon as one of the events they must take part in each year, and we are confident we can do that.

“Running over the iconic Humber Bridge makes this event truly special, and we know that runners really appreciate the support they receive from the local community along the route.”

Runners who sign up before the end of year will be granted entry at the same price as 2015, at £22 for affiliated runners and £24 for non-affiliated runners.

Runners can now sign up for the 2016 event by visiting www.humber-half.org.uk
