We’re ready for the Colchester Half Marathon!

Updated: Mar 2, 2023

All of us at Sarah’s Coffee Shop are thrilled to sponsor the return of the popular Colchester Half Marathon this spring.

Thousands of runners will take to the streets of Colchester on Sunday, May 21, making their way right past our home at Severalls Business Park.

The annual half marathon is a huge event in our city, and as a community business it is so important we support the people and events that make Colchester great.

A cheer squad will be stationed outside the shop and we’re ready to play our part in energising the runners and their loved ones with a great cup of coffee.

Runners taking part in this year’s event are encouraged to support charity partners the Robin Cancer Trust, an Essex-based organisation supporting young people with cancer.

I had the pleasure of meeting the charity’s founder, Toby, who set up the charity following the tragic loss of his brother Rob in 2011.

The charity is now dedicated to ensuring no family ever has to feel the pain of losing a loved one again – and their message of hope is one we can really get behind.

We’ll be open for the event, giving runners and their loved ones a warm and inviting space to enjoy a drink or two.

A discount offer on some Sarah’s Coffee Shop treats will also be included in the digital goodie bag offered to everyone taking part in the event.

It is set to be a fantastic day and we can’t wait to join the thousands of revellers out there to make it a day to remember.

To any of our beloved customers taking part in this year’s half marathon, good luck! We will see you for a well-deserved coffee and sweet treat afterwards.
