Entyce’s own Katie-May and Jane took on the Essar Chester Half Marathon on 21st May, raising money for our 2023 nominated charity, Hope House and Ty Gobaith.
The Chester Half is one of the UK’s longest-established and highly-regarded half marathons, starting and finishing in the city of Chester. On one of the hottest days so far this year, participants started the race at Chester Racecourse, past some of Chester’s most historic landmarks before heading out of the city into Mollington, Lea-by-Backford and Saughall, and finally finishing at the iconic Chester Cathedral. The route was diverse and picturesque for the entire thirteen miles!
The finish line was a welcoming sight, with crowds cheering runners on all the way to the end. Katie-May finished her first ever half marathon with an amazing time of 2hrs 12mins and Jane, a seasoned runner, finished in a fantastic 1hr 42mins. Their hard work (which included lunchtime training runs) paid off, adding to over £1000 raised for Hope House by the Entyce run club so far this year.
Hope House is a hospice charity that supports families with terminally ill children or families whose child has died by providing care, social work, and counselling. The funds raised by Entyce will go towards offering crucial help for families in a very difficult time.
This isn’t the first time the Entyce team has raised money for Hope House – we have a long history of supporting the charity with fundraising activities, as well as providing the charity with marketing strategy and creative support.
Entyce’s next race will be the Cheshire Half Marathon, taking place on the 10th of September at Capesthorne Hall. If you’d like to support us in raising funds for Hope House, please visit our Just Giving page.
