The Rotary Club of Hornsea and East Riding would like to say a big thank you and congratulations to our all runners . Thank you to all those who took part in Sunday's Hornsea One Third Marathon on 7 April 2019 to help raise money for the charity.

More than 320 people took part in the Hornsea One third Marathon and was one of the most popular and exciting events in the Holderness of East Riding. Raising well over £4000 for our local charity, it was also the largest single fundraising event of the Rotary Club. Hundreds of spectators line the country lane to support the runners along the entire route.
There were 372 runners registered and all 320 crossed the finishing line.
