Promoting physical and mental health

The Hugh Rice Jewellers Hull Marathon of Easter Sunday, 8th April, proved a huge success, with around 1,500 people squeezing into their best Lycra to run the 26 miles through Hull, Hessle and twice across the Humber Bridge.
Organised by Toro CSC Events, the route took in numerous local landmarks, such as The Deep, the KC Stadium and the picturesque Marina, and the weather offered a perfect combination of cool breeze, occasional sunshine and the odd light shower to give the runners unscheduled rehydration.

With local family business Hugh Rice Jewellers as the headline sponsor, each of the ten route zones were also backed by local organisations:

Zone 1 (City Centre) - Wilberforce Sixth Form College
Zone 2 (Anlaby Road) - Time to Change Hull
Zone 3 (Boothferry Road) - David Lloyd Leisure
Zone 4 (Humber Bridge) - St Stephen's
Zone 5 (Hessle) - eskimosoup 
Zone 6 (Hessle Road) - TaxAssist Accountants 
Zone 7 (Arena) - Hugh Rice Jewellers
Zone 8 (Marina) - Spencer
Zone 9 (Victoria Dock) - Cash for Kids
Zone 10 (Old Town and Museum Quarter) - Classlane Media

The marathon also saw the launch of our Time to Change Hull campaign for NHS Hull, which aims to reduce mental health stigma and get people talking. To really grab the public's attention, our Bubbleheads made their first appearance: spreading the word that 1 in 4 of us will experience mental health problems in our lifetimes, they certainly stood out in their brightly coloured morpshuits, and a second team was in place to chat to fascinated spectators about mental health and this exciting campaign.
