Fancy becoming a sponsor?

The Ilkley Half Marathon is set to attract 2,000 runners and reach over 200,000 people via social media when the inaugural event takes place on 11th July 2021.

Set in the picturesque surrounds of Ilkley and Wharfedale, your business has a fantastic opportunity to be associated with a high profile community and sporting event.

Organised by Ilkley and District Round Table (IRT), every penny raised by the event will go to those who need it most in the local community. IRT has raised over £500,000 in the last ten years through a variety of events but most notably for the world-famous Ilkley Beer Festival, now into its 12th year. The success of these events has been built upon understanding the local community and staging events that engage and delight those involved.

IRT wants to invite your organisation to be part of this hugely anticipated event. The beautiful spa town of Ilkley is renowned for hosting high profile sporting events such as the Fuzion 100 Ilkley Tennis Trophy, the Ilkley Town Cycle Races, the Ilkley Triathlon and as a stage finish host town for the 2018 Tour de Yorkshire. Those that live and visit Ilkley recognise its unique attraction.

Numerous opportunities are available to position your brand in the eye of the public via our event village, online marketing, social media and local press as well as tailored sponsorship packages.
