RB Hull MarathonVisit Event Website
Welcoming runners to the UK City of Culture 2017, the RB Hull Marathon on September 24 aims to bring a touch of culture to the race.
With a 2 and 4 person relay event running alongside the full marathon, participants have the ‘Freedom‘ to embrace the city’s history, culture and scenery on route. With four parks, art galleries, a sub aquarium, the UK’s newest Minster, street murals, crossing the Humber Bridge and a stadium finish in the KCOM Stadium, home to Hull City FC and rugby league Hull FC, you’d think that be enough. But there’s more.
‘Made in Hull‘, the route will have live musicians at regular intervals, mile markers designed by local schools and art installations within each mile, produced locally to depict each mile, be it as a painting, photography, drawing or more.
The marathon and relays are accompanied by an Art & Running exhibition at Hull College, where runners will get to see the aforementioned artwork in its original format, collect their race pack and find out more about the ‘Roots & Routes‘ of the local running scene in pictures and words. With the Fitmums & Friends’ Fun Run to give all ages a chance to be involved, why not ‘Tell the World‘? Enter by June 30 for cheaper rates. Find out more and enter here.
Those four titles in italics? They are the four seasons of the City of Culture Year!
