HU5k 2022 kilometre sponsors
Our kilometre sponsors have given generously in support of this community event, and we can't thank them enough for enabling this race to go ahead. (For more details on the kilometres on the HU5K run route, see our Course info page!)
Sodbury Fuels (www.sodburyfuels.co.uk)
A big thanks goes to long term friend of HU5k, Sodbury Fuels who are BACK on board for 2022 as one of our lovely km community sponsors - THANK YOU so much! Andy, Lisa and the crew at SF have been so supportive over the years and we're delighted that they are part of the team again for our big 10th Race event. HU5ky Bear will see you soon for some more driving, folks, that bear loves your tankers! 😜
Sodbury Fuels are a lovely, local, independent, family run business and the Number One heating fuel suppliers around - chase them down for top service on all your domestic, commercial or agricultural fuel needs!
The Parlour Pool (www.parlourpool.co.uk)
New to the gang this year are the amazing folk from @The Parlour Pool in Old Sodbury. Providing an exclusive indoor pool facility for the local community to use so everyone can have the benefit of a private pool without the burden of having to build and maintain one, The Parlour Pool also hosts a mind-bogglingly popular Super Swim School for children, specialising in a relaxed and calm environment and small class sizes. We're BIG fans.
HU5ky popped over to say welcome to the HU5k Family and offer his assistance getting everything ready for the next swim class. Sadly he got a bit distracted by all the FUN stuff and looked like he might be about to somewhat contaminate the beautiful water so we retrieved him! Massive thanks for your support, Sarah & Chris & Team PP. Hope you can join us on the 18th too!
Country Property (www.countryproperty.co.uk)
Also on the start line with us all again as km sponsor this year are the superstars at Country Property. They say "Established in Chipping Sodbury in 1989, we are the go to Sales and Letting agents in and around South Gloucestershire. Our agents are passionate negotiators, equipped with the latest technology, and always upholding the traditional values of teamwork."
HU5ky Bear can definitely vouch for the upholding & teamwork bit! Huge thanks to everyone at the Sodbury office for all your support for the event - we look forward to seeing some of you there on June 18th.
Simply Gardens (www.simplygardens.org.uk)
Back on board as km sponsors this year are the brilliant team from Simply Gardens Landscape and Maintenance. Simply Gardens offer tree surgery and landscape maintenance services to both private and commercial customers across the south west, really really know their stuff, and are a huge amount of fun to have around to boot. Thank you so much, Tom and the gang for all your support for HU5k - we can't wait to cheer some of you around the course again this year and see if you can beat your 2021 times!
HU5ky was allowed to upgrade from the training chainsaw and the flatbed truck to the BIG saw and the chipper kit for his annual apprentice session. We for one will be right behind him... just over there... right over there.... on the other side of the.... field... err maybe county! #dangerousbear #sticktorunning
The Holford Arms (www.theholfordarms.co.uk)
We are THRILLED to welcome our newest addition to the HU5k family, the wonderful Holford Arms, taking on the fifth km sponsorship spot for 2022. Now, we think the Holford really needs a visit to be properly appreciated but in lieu of that, here's their own intro for you: "The Holford Arms is a multi award winning traditional country pub. Situated within eight green acres between the picturesque counties of Wiltshire and Gloucestershire (ed. they're just over in Knockdown) with six lovely en-suite rooms, five luxury Chalets, four permanent luxury bell tents, camping and campervan facilities. Come and join us for a refreshing pint of local ale or dine from our seasonal and varied menu. We try to use local and own-grown produce as much as we possibly can making use of our beautiful vegetable gardens, cider orchards and vineyard."
Trust us, they're lovely and now we love them even more - thank you so much folks for your support for HU5k 2022, it's great to have you (literally, on race day) 'on board'.
HU5ky Bear had a marvellous time when he went to visit. He was keen to show off his pint pulling skills but got swiftly relegated back to customer status so he took himself off around the beautiful grounds on a tour of the summer-perfect outdoor bar & firepit and the Bell tent glamping facilities. 🐻Verdict: "Staying here, thanks - see you in June!"
HU5k 2022 event feature sponsors
