THIS week sees the last opportunity for people to enter the Seabank Marathon as preparations for the 34th annual event enter their final stretch.
With just over a fortnight until the main event on July 17, and the deadline for entries on Monday, now is the time to pledge support to a good cause close to your heart.
Peter Arnott, development officer at Boston and District Athletics Club, which is running the event with the help of The Standard, said: “It’s a fantastic opportunity for clubs, schools and charities to put people forward to raise money for their cause.
“We are also offering one free entry for every six entered from a club, school, charity or business, so take advantage of the benefits you could reap in sponsorship.”
Shorter routes are available this year, including a mini-marathon, and a three-mile course for dog walkers.
Those taking part in the event, which runs from Skegness to Boston, have a better opportunity to fundraise for their chosen charities this year. Unlike in previous years, all the sponsorship money raised – bar the £20 entry fee – will go straight to the charity.
The trail race starts at 9am at the South Parade car park, Skegness. The fundraising walkers/joggers event is at 9.15am, and the Skegness dog walkers will begin at 9.30am. In Fishtoft, the mini-marathon sets off at 11am and the three-mile course begins at 11.15am. The start and finish for these is the Fishtoft Scout Hut.
l Entry forms are available from the Boston Standard, 5-6, Church Lane, or via www.bostonanddistrictac.com.
