Sponsorship

We are delighted to welcome Toby Haynes Family Butchers once again as a sponsor for 2021. They will be providing the delicious pies for all finishers. Please take a look at their online store and support a local business.


We are also delighted to announce that John Williams Heating Services are sponsoring this year’s event. They are a local firm who support numerous events in the area, including the last Hazelbury Hurrah! running in 2019. John Williams was also one of the first sign-ups for the 2021 event and it is fantastic to have him back, both as a participant and sponsor. John Williams Heating Services are generously covering the cost of this year’s race numbers and we will share the design of those in due course…


Having secured pies for 2021, Hazelbury Hurrah! HQ have been working tirelessly to source a liquid accompaniment. It was a tough job but we are very pleased to announce that the beer for this year’s Hurrah! finishers will be provided by the independent Kettlesmith Brewing Company in Bradford-on-Avon. However, the hard work is not over. Hazelbury Hurrah! HQ now have to choose a beer from Kettlesmith’s wide range of flavourful and vegan beers. That may take a little longer…
