The Redbrik Chesterfield Half Marathon has confirmed a new official soft drinks supplier for its 2019 event in Queen’s Park.

Franklin & Sons Soft Drinks, part of the Global Brands franchise of businesses, will provide drinks for runners, spectators and volunteers at the 2019 Redbrik Chesterfield Half Marathon, which this year takes place on 20 October 2019, starting at 9:30am.

With its main outlet stationed in Queen’s Park at the start/finish line, Franklin & Sons will also provide additional prizes for the Redbrik Half’s event winners – details of which will be confirmed soon.

Ruby Sterland, Assistant Brand Manager at Franklin & Sons, said: “We’re really proud to have partnered with the Redbrik Chesterfield Half Marathon.”

“To be part of what is one of the region’s biggest – and best! – mass-participation events is fantastic, and gives us a brilliant opportunity to give back to the local community.”

Ruby added: “As a community-focused organisation, it’s great to be involved – we take part in a huge amount of CSR activity as a business and as individuals.”

“We look forward to supporting event runners, volunteers and spectators, and also a great cause in the form of our charity partner, Ashgate Hospicecare.”

John Timms, Event Director at Redbrik Chesterfield Half Marathon, said: “We’re delighted to have Franklin & Sons on board for the 2019 Chesterfield Half – and runners, spectators and volunteers no doubt will be, too.”

“This is the latest in a long line of important partnerships with renowned local and regional businesses, all of which are crucial to growing the Redbrik Chesterfield Half Marathon event and its brand awareness locally, regionally and nationally.”

“We want to make the Redbrik Chesterfield Half an event for all ages – we’re really excited to see everything come to fruition on event day and seeing our runners get some refreshing drinks when they cross the finish line after all their hard work!”
