Wiltshire Air Ambulance has special discounted places – costing just 22p – for people who would like to run the Devizes Half Marathon.

The event takes place on Sunday 7 April and this is the second year the charity is involved.

Kenresa Stratford, events co-ordinator at Wiltshire Air Ambulance, said: “We’re delighted to be involved again with Devizes Half Marathon. Last year’s event raised £3,415 in sponsorship for us by 11 participants and there was a great atmosphere, with people coming out to support the runners all around the course.

“As well as the half marathon there is a family race, which we are extremely grateful to be the beneficiary. The Devizes Half Marathon is a popular event so we would encourage runners interested in having one of our places to book quickly. Thanks to a special discount it costs just 22p to sign up and we ask our runners to commit to a minimum fundraising target of £200.

“We are a charity and rely on donations to keep saving lives. In 2018 the number of missions that our aircrew undertook increased by 26% and in the Devizes area we were called out once a week on average.”

The Devizes Half Marathon starts at 9.30am from Church Walk, takes in surrounding villages and finishes on The Green in Devizes.
