The organisers of the JCP Swansea Half Marathon have announced that they are offering all Passport to Leisure card holders discounted entry to the 2016 race in order to make the event more accessible to a wider range of the community and to encourage card holders to sign up for the fitness challenge next June.
The JCP Swansea Half Marathon is amongst only a handful of races in the UK to offer this discount, which highlights the organisers’ passion for the sport and the desire for their event to be inclusive. Running is an easy and affordable option to be active, and registering for a race is the perfect way to ensure focus and motivation in training in the months leading up to the race.
Residents within the City and County of Swansea boundaries who hold a Passport to Leisure are entitled to a third off the public entry fee, bringing the entry fee down to £23. The entry fee includes a medal, technical t-shirt, on route entertainment, post race massage and goody bag for all finishers and will also give the entrants access to HMT Sancta Maria training seminars.
The JCP Swansea Half Marathon takes place on Sunday 26th June 2016 on fully closed roads and is fast becoming a firm favourite amongst the running community. The flat fast course is perfect for beginners, first time half marathon runners and charity runners, whilst also attracting a large elite field from Wales and beyond to #RunSwansea.
Starting and finishing in the city centre, the route will take runners along Swansea Bay to The Mumbles and back, featuring six miles of stunning coastline, beautiful views and fantastic crowd support. A total of 8,000 public and charity places are available for 2016.
Race Director David Martin-Jewell commented: “We are pleased to offer Passport to Leisure card holders discounted entry to the JCP Swansea Half Marathon 2016. Both Nick and I are passionate runners and we feel very strongly about how running improves your physical and mental well-being, and we are always keen to promote the benefits of an active and healthy lifestyle for runners and their families. Now is the ideal time to sign up for the 2016 race and will give you plenty of time to start training and build up the miles. The course is flat and fast with one of the most scenic coastal routes in the UK, and the perfect race to sign up to for all Passport to Leisure card holders.”
