A HOTEL has announced it will be sponsoring a running club.
Village Hotel Club in Portsmouth Lakeside North Harbour will be Rural Running’s main event sponsor with the team from Village Gym hosting pre-race day number collections and provide pre-race warm-up as well as a range of giveaways for racers through the year, including exclusive membership offers for use in the Village Hotel gym.
Jeff Clark, founder of Portchester-based Rural Running, said: ‘When I started Rural Running in 2016 I could barely run a bath, let alone a marathon!
‘Village Hotel Club’s support will help us to reach even more runners and encourage them to get involved the sport.’
Village Hotel Club Portsmouth general manager Mike Horner added: ‘Village Hotel Club Portsmouth is dedicated to supporting our local community and using the skills of our health club and gym staff is a great way to do this.’
