Half marathon sponsorship

Have your say

Sheffield based SIG Insulations has announced it will return as the main sponsor of the city’s half marathon.

SIG Insulations, which has its head office at Hillsborough Works in Sheffield, is supporting the Sheffield Half Marathon for the sixth consecutive year.

Race organisers hope to attract 10,000 runners for next April’s event after a successful request to the council to lift the entry limit of 5,500 places.

Paul Gordon, managing director of SIG Insulations, said: “I’m delighted to confirm sponsorship for the sixth year running.

“In the current economic climate it’s not an easy decision to make, but SIG was founded in Sheffield nearly 60 years ago and we are determined to continue to support the local community with events like this.”
