Organisers of the JCP Swansea Half Marathon have issued a call for votes in The 2016 Running Awards as they aim to make the top 12 shortlist again in the ‘Best Half Marathon’ category.

The JCP Swansea Half Marathon has been growing in size and popularity since the inaugural event took place in 2014, with entries sold out for the last two consecutive years. The JCP Swansea Half Marathon is establishing itself as a must do race and was a finalist at The 2015 Running Awards for the UK’s Best Half Marathon, which has helped raise the profile of the event.

The Running Awards is an independent annual awards ceremony that takes place on Friday 22nd April 2016 at indigo at The O2, London, and celebrates the best of running and its culture. Runners can nominate and vote for their favourite products, brands, publications, sports retailers, charities and events.

With some of the best races competing across the UK every vote counts, so make sure you get yours in today. The first stage of voting is open now until 4th December, and shortlisted races will be announced on 8th December. Voting will then re-open until the Half Marathon category closes on 20th April 2016.

Voting is free, quick and simple, to place your vote for the JCP Swansea Half Marathon visit:  
Race Director David Martin-Jewell said: “We would love to make the top 12 shortlist again, and ultimately we would of course love to win the UK’s Best Half Marathon trophy! We need as many votes as possible from our runners, supporters, volunteers and everyone else who would like us to bring The Running Awards trophy back to Swansea.

“If you ran or came out to support, cheer on the runners and soak up the inspirational atmosphere then please give us your vote!”
