Lovell go the distance to sponsor Stafford Half Marathon

20 April 2018

Local developer Lovell Homes has been named as one of the official sponsors of this years’ Stafford Half Marathon.

The start and finish gantries were sponsored by the developer, which is currently building new homes at its Kings Crest development off Mansell Close near Castlefields.

After being rescheduled due to the poor weather, the marathon took place on Sunday 15th April, incorporating two steady climbs throughout the route from the town centre finishing at the Market Square.

Budding runners and Lovell employees Adam Coates and Ben Rees both participated in the Marathon, on Sunday 15th April.

Due to launch for sale in summer 2018, Kings Crest will provide a range of three and four bedroom homes for sale, in addition to 21 affordable homes.

Perfect for families and commuters, the development is situated near to the M6, offering easy access to Birmingham and Stoke on Trent.

Lovell Midlands sales director Trish Foster said: “We are extremely excited to be a part of the Stafford Half Marathon, with two of our staff members participating this year.

“We are proud to be sponsoring such a great event and helping the local community of Stafford.”
