Spireites’ chief joins marathon effort for September run

Chesterfield FC chief executive Chris Turner is the latest person to sign up for the Chesterfield and Derbyshire Marathon.

Chris will run alongside more than 700 others at the event in the town on Sunday, September 14.

It will include a full marathon and a relay race which involves four people taking a share of the course, while youngsters can enter a fun run.

Mr Turner said: “It’s a great opportunity for the town to come together and support various charities including Kids ‘n’ Cancer.

“Hopefully we can help get this marathon on the map as one of the best events in the country to take part in.”

Runners have until June 1 to enter the marathon for £35 for the full 26-mile route, £20 for a half marathon, £100 for the relay and £5 for a fun run.
