Sun shines for Worcester Marathon

Hundreds of runners turned out in glorious sunshine to take on the Worcester Full and Half Marathon.

The popular race took place on Sunday, May 20, and followed a course through the beautiful Worcestershire countryside – starting and finishing at Sixways Stadium, near Worcester.

St Richard’s Hospice was the beneficiary charity for this year’s event – while a number of runners also took on fundraising for the hospice too.

So far, around £5,000 has been raised for St Richard’s – an incredible amount which will help support the free care it provides to patients, their loved ones and bereaved people across Worcestershire.

Aly Parkes, Fundraiser at St Richard’s, said: “We would like to say a big thank you to everyone who took part in the Worcester Full and Half Marathon – including all the fantastic volunteers.”

Now in its seventh year, the Worcester Full and Half Marathon was organised by Tempo Events and sponsored by Hewett Recruitment.
