Frank Statue & Manchester Marathon

on . Posted in news

 

We are looking for fans to come and join us on the 6th April. If you have a Frank Head, please bring it. If not, please do not worry, but do dress up in fancy dress. We need as many of you as possible to chear on the runner as they pass by the Frank Sidebottom Statue in the heart of Timperley.

For those that are able to join us at the Frank Sidebottom Statue on the 6th April, for the Manchester Marathon, here is some more info.
We have had an offer of a singer, but can anyone help with a amp, speakers, mike etc?
We are looking for as many fans to dress up as possible, so please help and support this if you can.

Some great news! Our Friends at GForce will be bringing some young people along to cheer on the runners, and they will also be making Frank Sidebottom Masks!
So no excuse not to pop along now … You can make your very own Frank Mask on the day.
gforce transparent
We are asking for people to arrive around 9.30am and it should all be over around 12.30pm There are places to get food, and also toilets near by. Car Parking is free, but be aware that a number of roads in the area will be closed from 8.15am, so please allow plenty of time.


Here are some times and other information.
Information about the event: 

Your entertainment spot: Adjacent to Frank’s statue in Timperley
Time runners will be going past this spot: out towards Altrincham at 16kms between 09:49am and 11:16am, and back from Altrincham at 23kms between 10:10 am and 12:16pm.

Information

• Please note that the roads in the area will be either closed or subject to diversions. Please check that you can easily access and egress the event. If you think this may be an issue then please get in touch.

As a reminder there is a £500 prize for the best supporting entertainer, as voted for by the runners in the post-race survey. Last year this was won by Altrincham Children’s’ Choir who I know have used the funds to continue the work of the group.

We very much appreciate your support and the runners certainly enjoy having something to keep them going. The marathon has recently been shortlisted for a national friendly event award, and the entertainment has played (pardon the pun!) an enormous part of that.
