There are just two weeks left for runners to sign up for a place in Plymouth’s Half Marathon 2013.
Organisers GO2 have announced that Plymouth Olympians Heather Fell, Antony James, Tonia Couch and Sarah Barrow will sound the klaxon to start the race.
“We’re so excited that the city’s Olympians will be joining us on April 28. It’s really going to be a day to be proud to be from Plymouth,” said Amy Budd, marketing manager, Plymouth’s Half Marathon.
She continued: “These incredible athletes continue to inspire the next generation to get out there and get into sport. We know that having them on the starting line will inspire our runners to smash their goals too.”
Sarah Barrow, Olympic Diver said “I’m looking forward to seeing all the runners cross the start line. Good luck to everyone who’s in training - you can do it!”
Runners only have two weeks left to sign up for the Half Marathon, which starts at 9am on the Promenade on April 28. Entries close on March 31.
This year’s race has an improved course, which organisers hope will lead to quicker running times. To register, visit www.plymouthhalfmarathon.co.uk
