Marathon

Join our Robin Hood Half Marathon team

Life Cycle 7 is looking for runners of all abilities to join our Robin Hood Half Marathon team.

On Sunday 24 September the University is aiming to support a team of 500 runners of staff, students, alumni and friends as they run the Robin Hood Mini, Half and Full Marathons. This event will be part of our fundraising for the Children’s Brain Tumour Research Centre (CBTRC) under Life Cycle 7. We are looking for runners of all abilities and we are especially keen to encourage people who have never run a half marathon before.

Kevin Shakesheff, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Science, is championing the half-marathon across the University and sees it as a great community event for our University. “Every year the Robin Hood event runs through the University campuses and other places well known to our staff, students and alumni. About 10,000 people run in the race each year and the support from spectators as you run through the Park, Lenton, Jubilee Campus and Wollaton Park is wonderful. I know a lot of staff, students, alumni and our friends and families are keen to support the Centre for Children’s Brain Tumour Research Centre and it would be great to have hundreds of us wearing the official Life Cycle 7 running shirt and raising money for such an important cause.”

The Life Cycle 7 team and the David Ross Sports Village team will be setting up training events from now until the race as we look to create one of the University’s largest teams.

If you are interested in learning more about how you can join the team or volunteer to support the fundraising activities please email kevin.shakesheff@nottingham.ac.uk.

Information on the Children’s Brain Tumour Research Centre and the wonderful work they are doing can be found on the Impact Campaign website.
