The pop­u­lar Hilling­don Half Marathon and 10k event will be back again in 2017 and will take place on Sun­day 19th Fe­bru­ary at Brunel Univer­sity. Last year there were 575 en­tries and this year we hope to reach record en­tries. It is hoped that many lo­cal London marathon run­ners will enter the event as a warm up for the marathon. Bird & Lovi­bond so­lic­i­tors, a lo­cal law firm with of­fices in Uxbridge, Ruis­lip and Green­ford will con­tinue its sup­port of the event as ti­tle spon­sors.

Gary Ben­nett, Man­ag­ing Part­ner at Bird & Lovi­bond So­lic­i­tors com­mented:

“We are de­lighted to be spon­sor­ing The Hilling­don Half Marathon 2017 re­turns for a third year. Last year the race had the full sup­port of our staff with many train­ing and tak­ing part in the 10k race. In the process, we raised £1,500 for char­ity. We are hop­ing the weather will be kinder this time around –Storm Katie was in full force at the start of last year’s race! With bet­ter weather, the Bird & Lovi­bond team are hop­ing to get new PBs and raise more money for char­ity.” The of­fi­cial char­ity for the event is the Hilling­don Hos­pi­tals Char­ity. James Ship­ley, Race Direc­tor com­mented: “We wanted to work with a lo­cal char­ity for the race and since the ma­jor­ity of the com­peti­tors are from the lo­cal area we thought it would be a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity to work with Hilling­don Hospi­tal. We are bet­ting that a good num­ber of the ath­letes will have been born in the hospi­tal them­selves…. I my­self am one of them! With the help and sup­port of Bird & Lovi­bond So­lic­i­tors we think this event will achieve fan­tas­tic things for the com­mu­nity”
