2020 Hilly Helmet Preparations Have Begun

As we near the end of January preparations are well under way for this years’ event. We’re thrilled to have an award for our 2019 event but won’t be sitting resting on our laurels as we continue to work hard to bring you another enjoyable evening this August.

We’re delighted to announce some of our progress so far.

Kyna Software, Stampede Sports, Stark Ecology and The West Wilts Magazine are all joining us as event partners once again this year along with Wessex Water for their first year who will be providing reusable water bottles (and water) for all our runners on the night.

Gary Daniell of GD Sports Massage and Personal Training will once again be providing pre and post event massage on the night with all funds raised going to our fund raise. We’re still working with a couple of other potential partners, more news once things are confirmed. If you’d like to join us as an event partner, please do get in touch via the email address at the foot of this item

Once again, we’re indebted to our good friends at various running clubs and organisations associated with them for donations of various prizes for all our entrants, a comprehensive list of these donors will be published in due course.

We’re handling the distribution of some of these slightly differently this year. There will be the usual race bib draw but all prizes of race places will be allocated to entrants before the night of the event over the lead up months as some of the events take place before ours and with some longer distances winners may well benefit from extra notice so they can start their traiming. Please watch this space and our social media feeds on Facebook and Twitter for more information. Once you’re signed up for Hilly Helmet 2020 you’re automatically in the draw for all the prizes, the first of which is a place in the Corsham Running Club St Georges 10k in April. The winner for that prize will be announced at the end of February, so still plenty of time to get signed up and in the draw if you’re not already.

We’re also once again holding a raffle of other donated prizes like chocolate and bottles etc with tickets available on the night. If you’d like to donate any prizes to that please let us know via a message to robin@orangehelmetevents.org.uk  or contact us via social media if that is easier for you.

Please remember, every penny raised will benefit the charity Brain Tumour Support who will also be there on the night congratulating you at the finish line. If you’re not running but would like to donate you can do so via our Just Giving page: https://www.justgiving.com/campaigns/charity/braintumoursupport/robinmarkruns

Finally, if you’re not able to take part you’re very welcome to come along and join the atmosphere and if you would like to help, please let us know in advance and we’ll see if we can find you a job.
