Record entries for the Hornsea 3rd Marathon

Team Hudgell runners at hornsea third


Runners have put their best foot forward to achieve a record number of entries for this year’s Hornsea 1/3 Marathon.hornsea

Organisers of the annual event were expecting 300 entries for this year’s race. But with ten days still to go until the start, this number has already been exceeded – with entries for the team race particularly high.

The 1/3 Marathon, now in its fourth year and organised by The Rotary club of Hornsea and East Riding, is 8.7 miles long and is the only race of this distance in the UK.

This year, for the first time, teams are able to enter the 1/3 Marathon’s Corporate Challenge with the chance to win £500 for the charity of their choice.

John Gosnold, organiser of the race which takes place on Sunday April 1, comments: “We’re absolutely delighted with the number of entries we’ve received and more are coming in every day.

“It’s particularly pleasing to see that the team race is proving popular this year, with a number of local businesses supporting the event and hoping to win £500 for their chosen charity.

“When we started out planning this year’s event, we set our sights on 300 runners. But we already have in excess of this number which is fantastic and the highest number of entries to date.”

Neil Hudgell, managing director of Neil Hudgell Solicitors, the race’s main sponsor, will be official starter for the race and will also be running the 1/3 Marathon as part of an eight-strong team from his practice. The team hopes to win the £500 prize to give to their nominated charity for 2012.

Neil Hudgell Solicitors specialises in claims for personal injury and medical negligence and serves the UK from offices in Hull and Leeds.

Neil Hudgell comments: “We are delighted to sponsor the Hornsea 1/3 Marathon and I’m pleased there’s going to be such a good turnout for the event from all over the country.

”I hope the event will go from strength to strength. It’s a great way to attract visitors to the area and that’s got to be good for the local economy.

“Me and the team at Neil Hudgell Solicitors have been putting the miles in training and are hoping to get a good result on the day.”

The Hornsea 1/3 Marathon follows a picturesque rural course through the East Yorkshire countryside, starting and finishing at Densholme Organic Farm.  As the route is flat, it offers a good opportunity to achieve a personal best and is ideal preparation for the Hull Marathon (April 8) and the London Marathon (April 22).
