Your chance to design the finisher t-shirts for the ABP Humber Coastal Half Marathon

March 5, 2018

Calling all young artists! How do you fancy seeing your design being worn all over the Humber region?

ABP, the headline sponsor of the ABP Humber Coastal Half Marathon is offering children in our region, the chance to design their own finisher t-shirt for the race, which is due to take place 16th September 2018.

With almost half of the places for the event having been snapped up in the first few weeks by runners, the winning design will be worn by over 2,000 people.

The lucky winner will not only have their design created into a finisher t-shirt, but will also win free entry for their family to join the St Hugh’s Fun Run, which will follow on straight after the half marathon.

“We are encouraging local community groups, schools and children from all over the Humber region to get involved,” said Sarah West, Head of ABP’s Humber International Terminal and keen marathon runner, “it’s a great project to allow children’s imaginations to run wild.”

Competition entries are now open and hopefuls, who must be aged 15 or under. Children can download their entry poster either from the event day website or by checking out the race day social media pages below for more information.

As previously reported, the route for the 2018 ABP Humber Coastal Half Marathon has been slightly altered from the inaugural race route, set in 2017 however, participants will still be sent through the Haven Holiday Park in Cleethorpes, who will host the first water station with a team who are looking forward to supporting the race for the 2nd year in a row.

With the success of the local Park Runs in the region, a brand new 5k course has also been added to the half marathon route which will enable new runners to join in with the excitement of being part of an organised race.
