Garmin® have announced its continued support for the Garmin New Forest Marathon, set to take place from the 24th – 26th September this year.
Returning to St. Giles House in Wimborne, the Garmin New Forest Marathon is a COVID-secure event perfect for runners of all levels, with distances spanning from junior races to full marathon distance.
In 2020, the New Forest Marathon was one of the UK’s only running events to meet COVID requirements and go ahead in physical form.
Building on this success, this year’s Garmin New Forest Marathon will again be hosted at St. Giles House, allowing the flexibility to welcome more runners and spectators while remaining in line with government requirements.
To celebrate the event, Garmin is providing a 25% discount off selected products to those who have registered for a race.
This includes the newly announced Forerunner® 55, perfect for those wanting support on their running journey.
Offering detailed running data, this easy-to-use GPS smartwatch tracks distance, speed, pace and heart rate data, making it a great training buddy in the lead up to the event.
The Garmin New Forest Marathon offers a range of distances for all levels, including a Woodland Walk and junior races, plus four adult distances: 5km, 10km, half-marathon and marathon.
The race village will be better than ever this year, with traders, food outlets and a host of activities including paddle boarding, yoga and more.
Theo Axford, Head of Marketing, Garmin commented: “We are proud to continue our support of the Garmin New Forest Marathon.
It’s an amazing event for the running community, and this year is set to be better than ever. There’ll be lots of new runners out there looking for their first race, and they’ll be hard pressed to find a better one than the Garmin New Forest Marathon.”
Andy Daish, Event Director at the Garmin New Forest Marathon commented: “We’re delighted Garmin is continuing its support of the Garmin New Forest Marathon.
COVID has hit the running community hard, so we’re very pleased to be able to offer this COVID-secure again in 2021.
This year it’s going to be better than ever, with camping, live music, entertainment, activities and more, so we hope to see many new and returning faces on the start line.”
