A Chesterfield business has become the headline sponsor for the Chesterfield and Derbyshire Marathon after signing a three-year deal expected to be worth £100,000.

The PK Group, formerly PK Electrical, has agreed to sponsor the marathon, which is one of the town’s biggest and most successful mass participation events.

The event is operated by the locally-based Kids ‘n’ Cancer charity.

Charity co-founder Mike Hyman said: “This is fantastic news for the event and the profile of the charity,” said Kids ‘n’ Cancer co-founder Mike Hyman.

“We had a terrific launch last year and with the backing of The PK Group over the next three we can really push on and make the marathon, the half marathon and the fun run a significant date on the calendar for runners and charity fundraisers alike.”
