Scimitar named Official Sponsor of Worcester Full & Half Marathon 2022
Sustainable sportswear company Scimitar have teamed up with local charity St Richard’s Hospice and Tempo Events to become the Official Sponsor of the 2022 Worcester Full & Half Marathon.
This year’s marathon, now in its 11th year, takes place on Sunday 22 May, in which funds from each runner’s entry fee will help support the care provided by St Richard’s Hospice across Worcestershire. The race will start and end at Sixways Stadium, the home of Worcester Warriors Rugby Club.
Scimitar, who have been working with St Richard’s Hospice for 10 years, have partnered up for the event which will see runners able to compete in either of the three formats – full marathon, half marathon and now a new 10k distance. All marathon and half-marathon finishers will receive a 2022 bespoke medal and t-shirt, while 10k finishers will receive a medal.
Alison Parkes of St Richard’s Hospice said: “We’ve worked with Scimitar closely for a decade now and we’re proud to work with a local company who put sustainability at the forefront of everything they do.
“We’ve always had running kit produced by them and we’re looking forward to seeing the clothing that’s produced for this year’s Worcester Full & Half Marathon, where we’re hoping to see over 1000 runners competing.”
Sam Carter, Managing Director at Scimitar, added: “St Richard’s Hospice has always been a charity close to our hearts and we have always admired the Worcester Full and Half Marathon so to get involved with both was a very exciting opportunity that we wanted to be a part of.
“We hope to see as many people racing as possible and we will certainly be making it worth their while by offering goody bags for all competitors. We will also be launching some bespoke deals on our retail range for all those who enter the race, so if you’re planning to take part, look out for this in the coming weeks.”
