The Hinckley Half Marathon has been running since 2001 and over that period approximately £100,000 has been raised in profits and donations for the chosen charities. As the race has grown, so too has the level of organisation and the need for increased marshals, helpers and officials. This has increased the level commitment that I and Linda have had to give and the number of runners has also put a strain on the Water Park as parking has become an issue in recent years.
Both Linda and myself have over the years committed endless hours of our time, on behalf of Hinckley Running Club, to ensure that the event is managed to the best of our ability and we are proud of our achievements. Many thanks must also be noted to the generous support from fellow club members, friends and family over the years to which the race could not have been put on without their help.
However, for reasons outlined above it is with great sadness that I have decided to no longer organise the Hinckley Half Marathon and I have been unable to find anyone who is prepared to take over the duty as Race Director on behalf of the club. As a consequence the event will no long continue.
I appreciate that many of you will be disappointed but I hope that you understand my reasons. Could I once again thank all the runners and helpers who have help to contribute to the success of the Hinckley Half Marathon and wish them every success in the future.
