Apperley Quarter Marathon

22 Sep 2019

Organiser's Description

Apperley Quarter Marathon (AQM) - have done ENTRIES ON DAY but unlikely now (it was assuming limit not reached, but NEARLY reached now with week to go so enter now before race is CLOSED. THank you for all runners entered), registration on Sunday opens at  9:30 and will close at close to 10:30 as we can. The AQM is a lovely independent local race with food (cake and or bbq!!!) and drink at the end and supporting  worthy cause of Severn Area Rescue Association (SARA this year. We aim to provide as in previous races the following; efficient timing system, a goodie bag, a drink, a bespoke hand made medal, a golden ticket in finish bags provided by Tesco, cakes, local physiotherapists to give physical support before and after the race.

Sunday 22 th September @11:00 (see facebook apperleyquartermarathon for more details/ photos/ times)

Children's Race or kidathlon is FREE - about 1 k (runners in past normally 5-11 but younger ones have been carried, pushed in prams!) starts at around 10:20 ish.

The AQM was first run in the early 1980s and has supported many local charities.

A multi-track Race, road and cross country (including through the churchyard of anglo-saxon Deerhust Church), over a quarter marathon (6.55 miles) course. We really encourage fancy dress (going for a cartoony kind of theme this year) ... if room with numbers will look at doing a test event of an Apperley Eighth Marathon (a mini marathon of just over 5k) - keep an eye on it here!

Raising money for SARA and also ACC.

Bar/ BBQ/ Shower and changing facilities.
