AP Group is one of the key sponsors of the Sportingbet Guernsey Marathon for the second year running. The event attracted more than 500 entrants in 2009 and this year is set to be even more successful.
‘A number of AP Group staff has run marathons in New York, London, Paris, Geneva and Jersey during the past years and so we like to support events that are competitive but promotes fitness as well as it being open for anyone to enter’, said Gina Le Prevost, CEO of AP Group, adding ‘Having run two myself, (London and New York), I was keen to add our support to this new competition in Guernsey – I am hoping that someone from my Guernsey office will find time to train for next year’s event.
Last year’s event not only showed the island’s spirit but also helped to raise support and awareness for charities: Mines Awareness Trust, Headway Guernsey and Hope for Guernsey. This year the money is raised for two local charities: ‘Headway Guernsey’ and ‘Get Kids Going!’.
The marathon will take place on last Sunday in August – 29th, giving the Bank Holiday Monday to rest all those sore feet!
There is still time to register! Entries are accepted until 28th August. For more information, fees and registration forms please visithttp://www.guernseymarathon.gg/.
