waitrose-logoThe second annual WAITROSE LICHFIELD HALF MARATHON takes place on Sunday May 6th at 10.30a.m and the supermarket giant has come on board to support what it sees as a very important sports event for Lichfield in this Olympic year as department manager Richard Davis of Waitrose Lichfield is quick to point out:

We are delighted to be sponsors of the Lichfield Half Marathon this year, it’s a prestigious event for the city and is also a major occasion for the wider community. We want to seen to be supporting events which promote positive messages and benefits associated with a healthy lifestyle.

Kevin Wilson of organisers KP Events is also keen to see a partnership with Waitrose grow this year and into 2013 and beyond:

The Waitrose brand is synonymous with quality and high standards so for them to be a partner with us to support the link between fitness and exercise and healthy nutrition and lifestyle is fantastic and in 2012 with the Olympics coming up we’ll have Waitrose with us at the Half Marathon and at the Florette Lichfield Dash on June 30th when the Olympic Torch comes to Lichfield along with our special guest Olympic medallist Roger Black
