The Mablethorpe Marathon Foundation
Media Release - 23/12/2017: Future Events In New Hands
"From 2018 onwards we are placing the management of our races with an events promotion company in order to secure the future growth we envisaged" announced Foundation Chair Helen Nicholson. "For a few years now the volunteer management group have been at full stretch to put on the marathon and half marathon. Recently we added a 5k run which took us back to the three race format the original team put on back in 2006 when the event was first conceived. To grow further and ensure Mablethorpe remains a destination runners will flock to it is now the ideal time for a professional organisation to take over."
The Real Events Company, based in Lincolnshire, will take over full responsibility for the races formerly organised by Mablethorpe Marathon Foundation and local people will get used to seeing their Events Director Keith Taylor out and about in the area now that the take-over has been announced.
"Keith is particularly impressed by the commitment of the volunteers on the day and looks forward to introducing The Real Events Company to them" concluded Helen. "We feel we can retire from the scene secure in the knowledge that Keith’s team will build on the decade of success we have had".
Finally a message from the out-going committee -
"We have always received enthusiasm, warmth and support from our runners and their enjoyment has been our motivation throughout our tenure. We salute your determination, courage and achievement, and of course we thank you deeply for supporting our events, being our reason to run them in the town. We have been blessed to have met the nicest runners in the world and many will remain lifelong friends – we will miss each and every one of you."
