Fabulous Local Events this August
This August sees the welcome return of two of the area’s most popular sporting events and Eden Hall is proud to be a sponsor of both again this year.
The Newark Half Marathon starts at 10am on Sunday 12th. 1500 runners will be making their way from Newark Sconce Park through Farndon and passing Eden’s door between 10.30-11.30 before heading through the village of Elston and back towards Newark.
Road closures will be in place during the Marathon period so please check your route before travelling on the Sunday.
Once again, a representative from Eden’s Leisure Team will be motivating the runners with a pre-race warm up. We also have a team of volunteers manning the water station just outside Eden Hall. We’ll be sure to encourage all runners with a warm welcome and a huge cheer.
Our Restaurant Manager’s husband will be representing Eden as he aspires to meet his own personal challenge of running 3 half marathons in 3 months to raise money for MIND. We are right behind him and wish him every success. To read more about Graeme’s journey and to donate, please visit https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/3in3forjoanne
Sunday 19th August is another busy day in the local and national sporting calendar. From 11am, Southwell Racecourse opens its gates for Ladies Day. We’ll be there meeting and greeting race-goers, offering a little pampering, as well as presenting prizes for Best Dressed, Best Hat and Best Shoes, not to mention sponsoring one of the races. With an expected crowd of over 8,000 people, it’s a great day out – it’s not too late you get yourself a ticket!
If you’re not running or into racing, why not join us for a relaxing day at the spa.
