Run For All Joins Forces With Up And Running

Run For All Team & Up and Running Join ForcesWith the 2017 season soon to get into full swing, the Run For All team has announced an exciting partnership with Up and Running. The specialist running retailer will become the official sports retail partner of the Run For All series, which includes popular events such as the Plusnet Yorkshire Marathon, Leeds Half Marathon, Yorkshire Half Marathon-Sheffield and the Asda Foundation 10Ks. 

The partnership means that those who sign-up for the Run For All races will be able to take part in competitions and browse pop-up shops in the runners’ event villages. Up and Running will also provide prize vouchers for all of the events in the Run For All portfolio.

Jonathan Midwood, general manager of Up & Running, commented on the news: “We are delighted to be involved with such a popular series of events. Run For All events are highly regarded and we look forward to working with the team in 2017.”

Siobhan Curtis of Run For All said the partnership would be of great benefit to those competing at the events: “We very much appreciate Up & Running’s support for our events. The involvement of partners such as Up & Running serves to add value to the events we organise and offer some great opportunities for our runners.”
