A city’s property experts are swapping sales and lettings for shorts and trainers as the Salisbury Half Marathon returns to the streets next month.
Property consultancy Myddelton & Major is sponsoring the race on October 9 – and a team of runners from the firm will also be taking part.
Myddelton & Major Senior Partner Philip Holford said: “As a long-established name in Salisbury – we’ve been here since 1903 – we strive to support major events in the city.
“The half marathon is an excellent example – it brings in thousands of people, boosts the local economy, raises the city’s profile and puts a smile on faces.”
Philip added: “As a business entrenched in the fabric of the city, we feel it incumbent on ourselves to back this marvellous race which is taking place in such a stunning location.
“I urge runners to get their trainers on and enter the race to get it firmly back on track and hope supporters will turn out in huge numbers to cheer the entrants home on what will be a great day for Salisbury.”
The 19th running of the race on a new course begins at noon after a Zumba workout from instructor Kirstie Pugh.
Fast times are expected as the new city centre start in New Canal leads to a two-lap, mostly flat course taking in Bemerton, Quidhampton, Netherhampton and Harnham before the finish in Cathedral Close.
A bumper turnout is expected, with the Myddelton & Major team taking part including Partners Dean Speer and Peter Sammons, Commercial Negotiator Murray Waldron, Residential Lettings Administrator Fiona Thatcher and Accounts Administrator Liz Roberts.
The race is returning to Salisbury after a year’s absence as last year’s event, also organised by Total Buzz Events, was sadly cancelled due to low entries.
