After being concerned for some time at the amount of plastic used at a good number of events, it seemed like it was time to try to do something rather than keep supplying the throw away bottles we have for the last three events. After approaching representatives of Wessex Water at the start of the year, they have very kindly donated reusable for every finisher of our event this year which you’ll be able to fill at the finish line at this years event. We hope you enjoy receiving them and make good use of them. We’re also not going to have plastic goody bags this year as well as doing away with the plastic sleeves the mementos come in in an effort to cut waste as much as we can.
Apologies for the site being pretty quiet so far this year. It doesn’t mean nothing has been happening and it was great to meet with Beth from the Community Department of Wessex Water today. We’re still finalising details with another prospective event partner and would still welcome one or two more. If you or your company would like to be involved with this years’ event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss this further.
Don’t forget, if you want to be in the draw for the Corsham 10k spot for their event this year, you’ll need to be entered into our event by close of play tomorrow. It’s a popular event that normally sells out, so get yourself in the hat. Remember, all our race entries donated as prizes will be drawn from entrants during the build up this year, so the earlier you enter, the more draws you’ll be in with a chance of winning from. It’ll also give everyone more time to plan their year so they can do the race hopefully. We’ll announce the winner on Sunday then announce the next prize that will be drawn along the way to event night in August.
