Sponsors of the THHN City to Sea Event (2015)
Torbay Holiday Helpers Network provides free fun filled memory making holidays to families who have seriously ill children, families who are recently bereaved and to families who have a terminally ill parent.
This year we are delighted to be sponsoring the THNN City to Sea Event; A 23 mile Walk/Run or a 53 mile Ultra Marathon along the coast through some of Devon's finest scenery. You will find us at the second checkpoint at Victoria Hall in Shaldon cheering on the fantastic participants including a team of our own who have chosen to walk and run the route.
The City to Sea 53 Mile Ultra starts from Exeter Quayside and winds its way to Berry Head in Brixham before heading to Torquay and finally up to Babbacombe Downs for the finish line and event village.
The City to Sea 23 Mile run or walk starts from Exeter Quayside and takes a more direct but still very scenic route to Babbacombe Downs and the event village.
Update - September 2015
On Saturday 5th September over 200 people made their way to Exeter to run or walk back to Babbacombe via a challenging 23 or 53 mile road and coastal route. Our Team at Shaldon's checkpoint had a brilliant day clocking in the runners and walkers. Despite us being stationed a grueling 18miles into the route, the atmosphere was brilliant and the runners (and volunteers) were fantastic.
Over £14,500 was raised in total, a fantastic achievement for their first 'big event' which will go a long way into providing families with quality time together to build those all important memories that they will treasure forever.
