REGISTRATIONS are now open for Southend’s biggest event of the running calendar.
Havens Hospice will again be orchestrating the Southend Half Marathon, which this year is happening on June 9.
The hospice charity state: “Whether you’re a seasoned runner, just breaking into the world of half marathons or lacing up your shoes in memory of a loved one, this is the running event to add to your Strava stats in 2024.”
The 13.1-mile coastal course is fast, flat and traffic free, with lots of support and an event village at the end.
Havens continue: “What makes this half marathon truly special is the impact each mile has on the families Havens Hospices cares for.
“With every step, you contribute to ‘Making every day count’ for people of all ages who are living with incurable conditions and their families.
“The demand for our care is ever-increasing, so we need 2024 to be our biggest and best fundraiser to date.
“Your entry fee covers the costs of running the event and this year we are asking participants to become a “Havens Hero” and purchase the Havens Hero entry tickets, which includes the cost of providing half an hour of essential care at the hospice, making a real difference for someone in need.”
