St Austell Printing Company is pleased to once again sponsor the popular Imerys Trail Marathon, organised by St Austell Running Club.
Each year, for one day only, the land of Cornwall’s China Clay Industry is open to the public, giving runners the chance to take in all the very best our clay country landscape has to offer, including incredible views of St Austell Bay and beyond. A truly unique experience for the 600 runners who will take part.
Amanda Moody, Director at SAPC, says local events like the Imerys Trail Marathon are an opportunity to support St Austell and its residents:
“We’re delighted to sponsor the Imerys Trail Marathon.” she said.
“Being part of the St Austell community, not only as a business but as residents, is incredibly important to us. It’s part of what SAPC is all about. We’re a local, family business. We support local initiatives, sport and organisations to play our part in the achievements and economic growth of the town.
“In fact some of our team are involved in St Austell Running Club, so if not running themselves, will probably be involved in making sure the event runs to plan.”
The location of the SAPC factory along the marathon’s route, against the backdrop of the iconic clay mounds at the gateway to St Austell, is especially fitting.
With only short sections of road, this multi terrain route takes you on sand roads which will leave you thinking you have been on the moon! Together with private farm land and picturesque tracks and trails, the course offers stunning vistas of Cornwall’s countryside and coastline at it’s very best.
Terry Wyatt from St Austell Running Club who organise the race, says sponsorship is instrumental to the success of the event:
“SAPC’s help and expertise are invaluable. In producing the event leaflets they play a key part in promoting the Imerys Marathon.
With support from SAPC and other sponsors we’re able to give local runners the opportunity to take part in a one-off event and enjoy otherwise inaccessible routes. It is truly a remarkable and unforgettable local event.”
The 2019 Imerys Marathon and Half Marathon will take place on 19th May 2018. Click here to find out more and to enter now.
