National law firm Ashfords LLP continues its support of the Taunton Marathon and Half Marathon taking place on Sunday 2 April 2017, as the firm is once again announced as headline sponsors.
Ashfords is a long-standing supporter of this prominent event, which will see runners from across the country take on either the full marathon (26 miles) or the half marathon (13 miles) to raise money for charity. The event is well attended by both runners and spectators, and is a key event in the Taunton calendar.
Jason Squire, Partner and Head of Ashfords' Taunton office, said: "The Taunton Marathon and Half Marathon is an renowned event in Taunton and we are proud to be longstanding supporters of this race. CSR is very important to us and our continued support to this event reflects our commitment to local community."
"This year the Taunton Marathon and Half Marathon will be raising money for Alzheimer's Society, which is also the firm's chosen charity of the year. Good luck to all the runners taking part, we look forward to cheering everyone on the day."
John Lewis, Race Director of the Taunton Marathon and Half Marathon, commented: "This will be the Carnival Committee's sixth successful collaboration with Ashfords LLP. Putting on a large and complex event for 1200 runners takes a lot of volunteer planning and resource. We're very grateful to Ashfords for their continued positive support in helping us deliver a top class athletic event for the town as well as raise funds for such a worthy cause."
