Local club, amateur and fun runners are being encouraged to sign up for the 2020 Retford Half Marathon which is taking place on Sunday 8th March.

The annual event which is organised by Retford Athletic and Running Club, and also includes a popular family fun run, attracts over 1,000 entrants each year including local runners, and many from across Nottinghamshire, Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and further afield.

The half marathon, which is supported by a number of local firms including Jones and Co Solicitors and Brown and Co, is also a regular fixture for many seasoned runners, and is also popular amongst those wanting to get in shape to take part in, and to complete their first half marathon.

A lot of runners also use the event to raise money for a variety of good causes. This year the organisers have once again teamed up with Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice, who will be the main charity partner. As well as many entrants to the half marathon and fun run running on behalf of Bluebell Wood, each half marathon entry fee includes a donation to the charity.

With almost 1000 entrants signed up already, the 2020 is set to be the biggest and best yet and the organisers are encouraging runners to sign up as soon as possible as the race is expected sell out again well before the day.
