Musicians wanted to perform at this year’s EHM Half Marathon and 10k in Warrington!
We have a unique opportunity for musicians in the North-West. We’re teaming up with English Half Marathon & 10K and River Reeves Foundation to bring inspirational sounds to the runners and spectators at this year’s Half Marathon event.
Thousands of runners will take part in various events that make up the EHM event in Warrington from the 13th to 15th September. They will be raising hundreds of thousands of pounds for vitally important charitable causes including PAPYRUS – Prevention of Young Suicide, Room at The Inn – A Warrington Based Homeless Charity and Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation as well charities chosen by each runner. “Riv’s Runners” will be once again running to raise money for The River Reeves Foundation.
Are you a self-sufficient busker, solo artist, duet or unique musical act? The mission is simple; we’d like to provide musical inspiration across the running course to help the runners along their way. If you’ve ever taken part in a distance running event you’ll know just how up-lifting and powerful music can be when you need it the most.
We’d love to hear from you if you play covers or original music or maybe a combination of the two. Upbeat songs that people already know tend to energise the athletes best but we’ll trust your judgement and it’s up to you what you play. The most important part is that you need to be self sufficient. If you have a portable battery powered sound system of your own that’s great but don’t worry if you don’t, acoustic acts are just as welcome, as are musical acts from any genre.
We can’t promise that we can accommodate everyone that wants to be a part of this vibrant event but we’ll do our best to find you a suitable spot on the course or on one of our pop-up stages in the town centre.
If you want to take part we’re afraid that we can’t pay you, the main objective is to collectively raise as much for charitable causes as we can.
What the EHM team have promised though is a free beer at the finish line when it’s all over!
