Marathon Sponsor’s a Real Diamond
Local jewellers Hugh Rice are the headline sponsors of the upcoming Hull Marathon, which will take place on Easter Sunday, 8th April 2012, and welcome everyone to take part, from seasoned athletes to have-a-go heroes.
eskimosoup brokered the sponsorship deal on behalf of Hugh Rice Jewellers and have been commissioned by Toro CSC Events, organisers of the Hugh Rice Jewellers Hull Marathon, to manage further business engagement opportunities.
“Getting right behind the Hull Marathon offers the perfect opportunity for our company,” said Mike Rice, Managing Director of the Hugh Rice Group. “As a local family business with forty years’ experience, we’re proud to support an ambitious event like this, particularly as it really shows what the area has to offer.”
This high profile event will advance Hull’s standing in the national arena of sports and fitness, promoting a healthy lifestyle whilst offering a fun, exciting and memorable experience for all involved.
Raising much-needed funds for local and national charities, the Hugh Rice Jewellers Hull Marathon will benefit Help for Heroes, The Lord Mayor's Charity Appeal and The Bull Foundation, which was set up by the event creators to support local grass roots activities.
Participants start and finish outside the grand architecture of the Guildhall. During the challenge they take in iconic landmarks that include The Deep, the KC Stadium, West Park and Pickering Park, the Humber Bridge, the village of Hessle, the Marina and Victoria Dock riverfront. It’s going to be an exhilarating day filled with beautiful sights, fresh air and a shared buzz of excitement!
