Associated British Ports along with race organisers, Tape2Tape, launch entries this Thursday 27th February at 10am, for the fourth ABP Humber Coastal Half Marathon.

The event, due to take place on Sunday 20th September from the Cleethorpes Promenade, will also include a 10km race and a fun run, sponsored by St Hugh’s Hospital.

The 10km race has been added this year, after many requests from runners. The flat race could promise a great course for runners to achieve their personal best.

A special 10% discount will be given to anyone who signs up between 10am Thursday and midnight on Sunday, as a payday treat to kick-start the opening of entries. Just use the code ‘ABPOFFER’  at the checkout.

Runners from all over the country are encouraged to sign up and take part in the scenic race which takes in the sights along the river Humber, the busiest estuary in the country.

At the finish line, runners will receive an ice cream with a flake, a bespoke medal and a finisher t-shirt.

With an anticipated 2,500 participants due to take part in this year’s event, the future of the ABP Humber Coastal Half Marathon looks promising.

“Each year, not only do we see thousands of runners take to the streets, we also see the community come out to cheer and support the participants." Simon Bird Regional Director for ABP Humber

"The event is a great chance for ABP to give back to the community, and work with local businesses to bring even more footfall to the ever popular Cleethorpes.”

“Tape2Tape are delighted to be working with ABP Humber to again organise the annual ABP Humber Coastal races. As a result of runner feedback we are delighted to introduce a fantastic new 10km race in addition to the well established half marathon." Nicola Pattison Race Director from Tape2Tape

"Without the kind support of ABP Humber it would not be possible to put the race on with such great value for money entry fees. We love this race as it really shows off what our coastline has to offer. With a promenade finish this race will prove to be a fantastic event for everyone.”

Nicola continued: “The St. Hugh's hospital supported 1 mile family fun run opens the day up to the rest of the family, where you can run, jog, walk or stroll. Come along to Cleethorpes and have a lovely family day out.”
