Spicers of Hythe is delighted to announce the launch of a competition to celebrate one of the major events in the sporting calendar, the London Marathon. The iconic event, now celebrating its 35th year hosted in the capital is widely regarded as one of the greatest marathon events in the world and continues to grow in popularity.
The entry process couldn’t be simpler:
- Take a selfie with your finishers’ medal from this year’s London Marathon or take a photo of a family or friend holding their medal
- Tweet it to @SpicersofHythe using the hashtag #RunSpicersRun.
According to Virgin Money London Marathon, a total of 964,333 runners have completed the London Marathon (1981 to 2015), while a record 37,675 people finished in 2015. Nowadays, the London Marathon is shown on TV in almost 200 countries around the world. We wanted to celebrate the achievements of the incredible people that power through the 26.2 miles to raise millions of pounds for charities with a bespoke hamper and donation to their charity of choice.
We are calling on all runners of this year’s marathon or their friends and families to put them forward for a prize. You could win a bespoke hamper of handpicked little luxuries to help refuel after their victorious efforts, along with adding £100 to their fundraising total. The competition opens on Sunday 24th April – Friday 6th May and the winner will be announced on Monday 9th May.
Our very own Managing Director, Ian Spicer, commented, “Here at Spicers of Hythe we have seen first-hand the amount of dedication it requires to prepare for a marathon. We want to celebrate the tradition of fitness and fundraising by giving people the recognition they deserve for completing this iconic event and helping to boost their fundraising efforts.”
