Calling all runners! You may remember hearing a while back that the new Hull Half Marathon will be passing through the University in June, which is pretty exciting. Entries for the race are now open (they’re £30 plus processing fee, or £28 plus processing fee if you’re a UK Athletic Club Member). We would absolutely love to see some of you flying the flag for the University (and we reckon some of you could do pretty well too).

If you feel like you’re not up for the half marathon then there’s also a 10k run around the centre of town and the marina, but you won’t get to race around the campus.

And if you’re not quite ready for the half marathon OR the 10k (a bit like most of us in the office if we’re being honest) then we think it would be fantastic if the whole campus was lined with staff and students to cheer on all the runners. It’s shaping up to be a great day out and we’re sure there will be lots going on as well as the running.

You can find out more about the Half Marathon and the 10k, including how to enter, here.
