Jane Tomlinson’s Run For All are the new race organisers for the Derby Ramathon and will be introducing a new name and sponsor for the event. The top East Midlands race will now be known as the Asda Foundation Derby Half Marathon and is set to take place on Sunday 3 June 2018.
Not-for-profit events company Run For All have added the old Ramathon to their 2018 race diary with the aim of using their considerable marketing fire power to strengthen this half marathon. The event already attracts thousands of runners each year who enjoy the fast, flat course that starts and finishes at Derby FC’s Pride Park Stadium. In addition the existing event benefits from first-class facilities at the Race Village, outstanding crowd support and the much sought-after t-shirt and medal.
Derby joins Leeds, Hull and Sheffield as part of the half marathon series of events from Run For All. They hope runners will flock to their newest race and as a further incentive have offered a special deal. Any runner who signs up before 5pm on Tuesday 16 January will pay a discounted entry fee.
The key organiser of the former Ramathon will be working closely with Run For All to deliver the 2018 event and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. Events Manager Tristan Batley-Kyle acknowledged this assistance, saying: “We look forward to working with everyone involved to make the Asda Foundation Derby Half Marathon a huge success.”
