MLP Solicitors supports ASICS Greater Manchester Marathon in Trafford

Firm sponsors long distance event for third year

Altrincham law firm MLP Solicitors is once again one of the partner sponsors of the ASICS Greater Manchester Marathon in Trafford and showing its support for the runners who will be weaving through the streets of Trafford on 6th April 2014, raising money for various worthy causes.

The route features just 54m of elevation gain, making it the flattest and fastest marathon course in the UK and of the flattest in the world.  Thousands of spectators turned out in support last year, including the local businesses of Altrincham, who came out in their droves to cheer on the runners. Altrincham is the half way point of the ASICS Greater Manchester Marathon and, new for 2014, also the hand over point for the Half/Half team relays.

Commenting on the decision to sponsor the marathon for a third year, Stephen Attree, director, said: “We wanted to show our continued support for a great athletic event which passes by our front door in Altrincham.  Although I’m not running on this occasion our staff will still be there on the day, offering encouragement and much needed bottles of water to those taking part.

“We take community support very seriously at the firm and events such as these are a great way to show our commitment to both sport and fundraising activity in the area.  Obviously we are biased and hope that a local person from Altrincham wins the race once again but we wish all the best to everyone taking part in the 2014 marathon and hope they can achieve some personal bests!”
