Leading Salisbury-based law firm Trethowans has announced it will be the headline partner for the city’s new half marathon event for 2023, to be named the Trethowans Salisbury Marafun.
Set to take place on Sunday, 8th October 2023, the event will see around 2,000 runners hit the streets of Salisbury.
With a mix of historical streets, landmarks and countryside views, the route will showcase the city, with highlights for runners including passing through the grounds of Salisbury Cathedral and crossing the finish line in the heart of the city centre by the Guildhall.
The Trethowans Salisbury Marafun is organised by ReesLeisure, which also manages the ABP Southampton Marathon and Winchester Marafun.
Local community groups, sports clubs and charities are invited to enter and volunteer at the event and ReesLeisure will provide donations to volunteer groups and support individual charity runners raising key funds for their chosen causes.
Mike Watson, managing partner at Trethowans, said: “We’re excited to announce our partnership with this new half-marathon in Salisbury, which is bound to be a great
day and a chance for runners from all over to enjoy this scenic route through the city next autumn.
“Several members of our team have already signed up to take part. We’ll be there to cheer them on and hope to raise lots of funds for our chosen charities.”
Chris Rees, director of ReesLeisure said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Trethowans for the Salisbury Marafun. A huge thank you to Trethowans for their support of this new event in the city.
“We look forward to developing the partnership over the year. We are excited to be taking our Marafun brand across to Salisbury and welcoming all of the runners next October.”
