The 2019 Nationwide Building Society New Swindon Half Marathon raised over £100K for local charities, if you are taking part this year and have a cause close to your heart we encourage you to fundraise for any charity you like.
If you prefer to take part for your own personal achievement, you are not obliged to raise any money for charity at all.
A much loved feature of The Nationwide Building Society New Swindon Half Marathon are the charity cheerpoints along the course. The more the merrier! If you would like to host a cheerpoint and entertain the runners as they pass you then please do get in touch to discuss the best locations and access requirements.
This year we are pleased to be working with the following Charity partners:
GLL, operating under the Better brand, is a not for profit charitable social enterprise committed to delivering a better quality of fitness and leisure for everyone. We’re committed to providing access to quality community facilities – and more – at a price everyone can afford. We aim to get more people, more active, more often. We promote healthy and active lifestyles, giving communities access to facilities that help improve their health and happiness through participation in activities. It could be gyms, swimming pools, ice rinks, trampoline parks or sports halls we have it all.
As a charitable social enterprise, we invest in our communities as we are a not for profit organisation but it’s not just about money: we also invest time and effort in encouraging everyone to take advantage of our services.
We work for the benefit of everyone: the public, the communities we work in, the environment, our staff and our partners. Whether you join us on a pre-paid memberships, or use our facilities occasionally as a non member, you can get fit, stay healthy, and know that you’re helping make a difference in your community. You can also rest assured that any surplus we make now and in the future goes back in to the service as you are buying in to an ethical company. Now, that’s better.
