It will be the sixth anniversary of the re-born event, rescued from collapse and relaunched by Davies and Partners Solicitors and supported by Gloucester Quays Rotary.

As well as providing a fast and interesting circuit its aim is to show off Gloucester at its best, provide a healthy activity for those from Gloucester and further afield and to return monies made to local charities.

Nigel Tillott, a director at Davies and Partners Solicitors and an employment law expert, said "It is wonderful that EG Carter & Co Ltd have agreed to be headline sponsors again this year.

"The company got really involved in the race last year and it was a pleasure to work alongside it."

EG Carter was founded in 1945 and is a fourth-generation family firm. Its project values range from a few hundred pounds up to £20m and it has a turnover approaching £70 million

E G Carter & Co Ltd will be going more than one step further than simply sponsoring the event. It plans to also enter a team to run the 10k route.

All proceeds will go towards local charities.

The race is due to take place on Sunday, July 7, 2019. Entry is limited.
