Employees from Redbrik Estate Agency will be taking on Chesterfield Half Marathon on 22 October
A group of staff from the title sponsors of this year’s Chesterfield Half Marathon are putting their best feet forward to take part in the event themselves.
The seven employees from Redbrik Estate Agency will don their trainers to tackle the 13-mile race, which is set to be one of the town’s biggest and most successful community participation events.
Mark Ross. Peter Lee, Michael Parry, Lindsey Holdsworth, Tracey Gurney, Ross Bateman and Dave Passell will run to raise money for Redbrik’s three chosen charities for the year.
The charities to benefit from the money raised are Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice and Ashgate Hospicecare, which are both also official charity partners for the race, and The Children’s Hospital Charity.
Mark Ross, director of Redbrik, said: “After becoming a headline sponsor for the Chesterfield Half Marathon for the next five years, we thought what better way to further showing our support than taking part in the event ourselves.
“It’s going be a fantastic day that we are delighted to be a part of and running it will be a great team building exercise – with some friendly competition thrown in I’m sure!”
A team of eight from Redbrik will also be taking part in a one-mile fun run, which is held in conjunction with the Half Marathon at Queen’s Park and open to people of all ages and abilities.
The team are encouraging other runners to take part in both the Half Marathon and Fun Run in aid of their chosen charities and are even offering to refund the £25 entry fee for anyone that signs up to run for Redbrik and raises over £100 in sponsorship.
The Redbrik Chesterfield Half Marathon will take place on Sunday 22 October and is backed by Chesterfield Borough Council.
