New event partner for half marathon in Plymouth


We’ve appointed a new event partner for the city’s popular half marathon. 

Event West, which is based in Plymouth and already runs the Britain’s Ocean City 10k, is teaming up with us to host the race from 2017 following a recent tender process.

The new event will be called the Britain’s Ocean City Half Marathon in line with the 10k, which attracted more than 2,500 runners in October.

Councillor Glenn Jordan, Cabinet Member for Culture, said: “We’re delighted to be partnering with Event West for the Britain’s Ocean City Half Marathon next year. The race is a hugely important event in the city calendar and we’ve carried out a rigorous selection process to ensure our new partner shares our vision for building on its success.

“With the Britain’s Ocean City Half Marathon joining the Britain’s Ocean City 10k we are creating a series of races that will really put Plymouth on the map and provide the stepping stones for runners to progress in distance.”

The date for the Britain’s Ocean City Half Marathon will be announced very soon. Details will be published on the Run Plymouth website.
