Coalport Village Hall
You are hereby invited to The Divorce Day Marathon (and half) fundraiser...
Entries are now open for the race taking part in Coalport (not the railway line route) on the new route taking in part of the Silkin Way, Rough Park and the Valley of Ironbridge. The race will take place on Saturday 22nd June and will start at 9am. The Marathon will consist of 3 laps and the half marathon 2 laps. Mixture of paths and tracks.
Now being a fun run and pee taking idiots that we are we have a few things up our sleeves...
Firstly Runners will start off the race married to their partner (these will be randomly selected or if you really want to run with someone we can be bribed) and you will start off running together having tied the knot. After competing your first lap for the half marathon or second lap for the full marathon, you’ll separate and go your own separate ways - one of you running the same direction and the other in reverse. Will you talk to your partner half way round the route - that’s your choice.
Secondly when you enter, you will see there are two prices - with the raffle or without - £35 and £50. You will all experience the same day and medal, however if you sign up for the £50 package you will be in with a chance to win a divorce settlement. We will collect all the extra £15's and at the end of the day will award one boy and one girl randomly selected with a divorce settlement. Fingers crossed this could be £500 each.
Fancy dress is highly recommended and Top hats and tiara’s should really be mandatory 😆
The race will start with speeches and confetti.
All profits from this race will go towards enabling us to purchase a AED Defibrillator for our races, to increase your safety when you run with us.
We have been involved in event management for over 13 years working on all race distances from 5K’s right up to Ultra Marathons. We are actively involved in the course build of numerous OCR’s that take place in the UK. When we launched How Hard Can it be Events, we wanted to make running events fun and put on events that we would want to take part in ourselves. That is why we have worked hard to host smaller, friendlier events, where people can relax and get to know people and enjoy the whole running experience. We think this philosophy is what makes us stand out from the crowd.
