The 9th Griffin Chapman Colchester Half Marathon organised by Colchester Colne Round Table was another huge success.
The run held on Sunday 24th March welcomed 4,000 runners. The event has raised thousands of pounds for local charities MS-UK and Headway Essex. As well as money raised directly from the event, many runners raised sponsorship for good causes.
The event is one of the biggest in the area and the atmosphere on the day is electric. It brings the community together with many volunteers (including 41 Club & Ladies Circle) helping and thousands of spectators along the route. Many local businesses also benefit form the Half Marathon with most local hotels fully booked and local pubs and restaurants bursting at the seams.
Matt Eaton, National Marketing and PR Officer and fellow Colchester Colne Tabler said: "Never believe that a few caring people can't change the world. For, indeed, that's all who ever have."
"The Colchester Colne Round Table legends today, have done just that and made their town and community proud."
