New Sponsor For Cheltenham

Cheltenham Half Marathon

The Cheltenham Half Marathon has a brand new title sponsor for 2015, organisers have announced. The 2015 race which takes place next month will be known as the Whole Foods Market Cheltenham Half Marathon.

Tony Edge, Cheltenham store manager, said: “Since we opened our doors in 2012 we have tried to be a very good neighbour, buying local food, helping local charities, and we are thrilled to now be supporting Cheltenham’s Half Marathon. We would like to wish all the runners a great race on Sunday 27 September! May the weather be perfect and the PB’s be bountiful!

“Remember to share your experiences with us on our social media channels, if you tweet or post us make sure you copy in your charity and we will share with our customers. And if you come to the Cheltenham store in your running gear after the race, I will personally buy you a celebratory drink! Good luck!”

Race organisers estimate that this year’s race has nearly double the amount of entrants to last year’s. The 13.1 mile journey will start and finish next to Pittville Park, taking in the sights of the tree-lined Promenade towards Montpellier, and the broad, flat streets of Lansdown Road.
