This years’ Phillips Basingstoke Half Marathon is taking place on Sunday October 7. A team of 60 runners are set to take part and they will be running as members of Team Phillips with the aim of raising money for Pelican Cancer Foundation. Among the runners are Pelican trustees Howard Gardener, whose firm Phillips Solicitors, are the headline sponsors of the event; and Consultant Colorectal Surgeon Brendan Moran. This will be the fifth time that Howard and Brendan have taken part in the popular, if gruelling event together!
It’ll be a challenging course which goes through some beautiful countryside and passes through the delightful villages of Cliddesden, Farleigh Wallop and Ellisfield. The 13.1 mile route returns the runners to Basingstoke ending at the War Memorial Park.
This year Phillips has chosen Pelican Cancer Foundation as their charity of the year. If you would like to show your support to Pelican for this event, please visit the Phillips fundraising page to make a donation.
