TJ sponsors Portsmouth Marathon


TJ are pleased to be supporting the Portsmouth Coastal Waterside Marathon 2019 by supplying much-needed waste management services free of charge for the third consecutive year (and until 2022).

The event, which will take place on Sunday 22 December has been running for 10 years and also offers a Festive Half Marathon option as well as the 50k Ultra for those wanting to push themselves a bit further.

TJ will provide four eurobins, which will be placed along the route to ensure that any waste generated throughout the event is captured, minimising littering and pollution. TJ will deliver the bins to the site the day before the event to ensure that they are located in the optimal positions ahead of time.

TJ will also supply a 7.5 tonne van and driver to enable the bins to be emptied and the waste will be transported back to TJ’s materials recovery facility in Tipner for sorting and recycling. As much as possible will be recycled or reused in line with TJ’s policy to divert as much as possible from landfill.

The marathon route will start at South Parade Pier, going to the end of the Hayling Billy Line and back. It’s a unique multi-terrain marathon with fantastic views across Langstone Harbour and a great way for keen runners to kick off the festive season!

Believe and Achieve Events Ltd are proud to organise and run this event to raise money for the Portsmouth RNLI, which is the lifeboat station that provides search and rescue for the eastern Solent and has been doing so since 1965.

Believe and Achieve offer one-to-one and group personal training sessions at your home or in the open air. Ideal for those looking to lose or manage weight, improve their fitness, tone up or train for a particular event such as a marathon. They also deliver effective motivational and supportive life coaching.

The event will kick off at 8.05am with the start of the 50k Ultra, followed by the Marathon at 08.35am and the Festive Half Marathon at 09.35am. Medals will be presented to all finishers and category winners will receive trophies.
