Hereford Times backs the Herefordshire Running Festival

Hereford Times: The Hereford Times is among those backing the Herefordshire Running Festival The Hereford Times is among those backing the Herefordshire Running Festival

THE Hereford Times will be among the businesses backing a major new event in Herefordshire this September.

The Herefordshire Running Festival is set to bring thousands of people into Hereford and there will be around 1,200 runners competing a fun run, a 10k, a half marathon and a full marathon - all on the same day.

The festival, on September 21, is the result of a two-year partnership between Herefordshire MIND and local fitness company Fit+Healthy.

That partnership is known as Fit+HealthyMinds.

Behind the festival is the aim of not only promoting wellbeing and resilience to the wider community but increasing awareness of mental health issues – and the impact that good physical health can have on them.

And the Hereford Times will be covering the build-up and the stories behind the festival in the weeks leading up to the big day - as well as being there on the day, to cover this unique event for the county.

Watch out for our coverage each week in print and online.

The organisers have “road-tested” their festival plan over two successful 10k road race events.

Race and performance director Richard Danks says that, from the off, the festival is on track to be a unique national event within five years.
