Up And Running At Top Sports Tours International Races

The Hero Half Marathon leg of the Tour of Tameside

Popular retailer Up and Running has joined forces with event organiser Sports Tours International to support three of their key 2018 races. They will officially partner this year’s edition of the multi-day Tour of Tameside, UKFast We Love Manchester 10K and UKFast City of Salford 10K.

In line with the partnership, Up and Running will be on hand at all of these events to share their knowledge with training hints and tips, product reviews and special offers on the race days.

Kevin Harmer, UK Events & Sponsorship Manager, commented on the news: “Sports Tours International are delighted to be working with one of the UK’s leading running retailers. We here at Sports Tours International only work with businesses and organisations which we feel will improve our offering and add to the experiences of our participants and we firmly believe that that Up & Running fit that bill.”

Jonathan Midwood, Up & Running General Manager said of the partnership: “Up & Running is committed to supporting runners throughout their training and all the way to the finish line, so we are delighted to be sponsoring these key events in the North West this year.”

In addition Up & Running's inclusive running project - STG (Social Run Group) is active in the north-west with  groups linked to stores in Chester, Clitheroe, Manchester and Oldham. Up & Running welcomes all abilities to these regular runs and they reckon SRG is an ideal way to prepare for Sports Tours International's events.

Entries for all three of the events remain open. First up is the Tour of Tameside takes place from 14-18 June, before moving on to the UKFast We Love Manchester 10K on 8 July, concluding with the UKFast City of Salford 10K on 9 September.
