New scheme means runners can earn cash for their clubs in Sunderland


Clubs can start to benefit from the payback scheme as soon as 10 affiliated members have signed up to run in either the half marathon or 10K.

For the 2017 Siglion Sunderland City Half Marathon and 10K, there is a sliding scale in the payback scheme for each event. A club that enters 10-19 runners in one of the two races will earn £50, 20-29 earns £60, 30-39 earns £70, 40-49 earns £80 and over 50 runners from one club in the same race earns £100. The same scale applies to club entries for both the half and the 10K.
Entries per event

All Clubs affiliated to a national governing body will be eligible.
