Winchester Marafun gathers momentum from new partnership with Persimmon Homes
We are excited to announce a new partnership with Persimmon Homes to support the Winchester Marafun event on Sunday 25th September.
This is the first year that a Hilly 10k has been included in the event and we look forward to creating an exciting day of running, promoting the cities many charms and encouraging a fun day out for friends and family too.
As part of the partnership, Persimmon Homes will be making a donation to the dozens of community groups and sports teams who have volunteered to marshal the race and assist runners including local University Sports Clubs, Scout Groups, Girl Guides, WI’s and Running Clubs.
“We couldn’t put on this amazing race without the help of all the community groups and volunteers involved. I’m incredibly pleased that we have partners like Persimmon on board who are able to support those groups who help make this event happen" - Chris Rees, Event Director
“The Winchester Marafun is in every sense a community and family event and we’re delighted to support this brilliant spectacle through Winchester’s iconic streets and stunning landscapes. From our sponsorship of Team GB to the Winchester Marafun, we want to create a positive legacy in the areas where we build homes. Encouraging people to lead active, healthy lives while also supporting local groups and sports teams is a powerful way that we can achieve this.” - Ian Beal, Managing Director, Persimmon Homes South Coast.
