    Howards Are Proud Sponsors Of The Weston Super Half

    2017 was a great year for Howards Motor Group! We got involved in loads of local events, fundraisers and sponsorships including the Dorset County Show, Weston Hospicecare’s Mendip Challenge and Christmas Jumper Day. We’re also sponsors of local sports teams such as Yeovil Town Football Club and Weston-super-Mare A.F.C (to name a few). Getting involved in local groups as well as supporting charity fundraisers are things we feel strongly about and 2018 is already headed in the right direction!

    As we look forward into 2018 we are already planning and getting involved with local events. This time we are working in partnership with the Weston Super Half, to bring you a brilliant opportunity to run a half marathon across the glorious sites of Weston-super-Mare! Starting at Marine Parade, through the picturesque villages of Somerset and finishing up a quarter mile out to see on the Grand Pier! Other sponsors include Macmillan, Just Giving and the Grand Pier!

    Howards will be entering their own team of runners! We’ll be bringing you regular updates on our Howards teams training and progress, with a focus on one of our Technicians who will be going on to do the London Marathon in April! Tom Lewis, our Diagnostic Technician said:

    I’m very much looking forward to participating in the first ever Weston Super Half marathon and especially being part of the Howards group team. Although I’ve run many half marathons in the past it’s great to be running somewhere completely different with an unknown course. Hopefully the weather will be kind to us and everyone involved can have a great day raising as much money as possible for a fantastic cause”.


    The event has teamed up with James Cracknell OBE, a Double Olympic gold medalist to host the event! He’s already been drumming up interest with our very own Peter Haynes (MD here at Howards) and David Backes (our Finance Director). They hosted an event at the Grand Pier itself, making their appearance in a branded Lotus!

    This is a totally unique opportunity and we are really happy to be a part of it! With the opportunity to run the half marathon,13.1 miles OR (if this is a bit too much) why not enter the Community Mile? The Community Mile offers families, friends and schools the opportunity to get involved in the Weston Super Half by joining in for just a mile of the route in a fun run, jog or walk, whatever suits you!

    Why not see how you can get involved on the Weston Super Half site?
