iTAB continue partnership with The Great Run Company as the Simplyhealth Great South Run Celebrates its 30th event

September 24, 2019

iTAB are delighted to partner with the Great Run Company to offer their participants the opportunity to personalise their Simplyhealth Great South Run Finisher Medal with their name and finish time.

The Simplyhealth Great South Run takes place on Sunday 20th October 2019 in the city of Portsmouth and has become one of the world’s leading 10-mile runs. From its inaugural event in 1990, the Great South Run celebrates

30 years of running this year – increasing its runners from 2,000 in the early days, to an expected 20,000 participants this year. This popular event starts and finishes on Clarence Esplanade in Southsea, taking in the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, Nelson’s HMS Victory and Henry VIII’s infamous Mary Rose – making it a maritime-lovers dream route!

Catherine Foster, Brand and Marketing Director at The Great Run Company said: “We’re delighted to be continuing our partnership with iTAB. We know our runners are all aiming to be their greatest, working towards their own personal goals and when they smash that target, they want to celebrate and remember their achievement. With this year being the 30th Simplyhealth Great South Run there will be even more reason to mark this special occasion.”

As well as the 10-mile Run, this weekend of sport also includes the Simplyhealth Great South 5K and the Simplyhealth Junior and Mini Great South Run for children.

If runners didn’t purchase an iTAB during registration, they can order via the Great Run shop, in a few simple steps: https://www.greatrun.org/itab or via the Great Run App.

The iTAB is a small engraved plate which is secured onto the ribbon with a custom-made buckle. Runners simply collect their medal at the finish line and their iTAB arrives in the mail a few weeks later, laser engraved with their name and finish time.
