Potters 'Arf - Competition
Hanley Economic Building Society Potters ’Arf Marathon 2021 1,000th entry competition
As part of a competition, the 1,000th adult to sign up for this year’s Potters 'Arf won free entry to the race.
Child minder Rebecca Dixon, aged 31, claimed the prize after entering the 13.1-mile run.
She was inspired to sign up for the Potters ’Arf because of memories of a commemorative china plate owned by her dad, Richard Snowden.
Rebecca, who grew up in Alsager, said: “My dad did the Potteries full marathon in the 80s before I was born and he’s got a commemorative china plate from it. I always remember seeing it on the wall growing up, so I was inspired by my dad really.”
Rebecca says she has been getting back into running after the birth of her two children. She has completed a 10k race before, but never taken on a half marathon.
The former Alsager School student, who now lives in Bristol, said: “My running has been going really well and I thought about entering something where I live. Then I thought that, especially after the past year of not being able to visit family, it would be really nice to enter the Potters ’Arf. So I signed up and it will be great to be there. It’s amazing to be the 1,000th adult to enter.”
Rebecca also won six months’ membership to Shapes Health and Leisure Club at Fenton Manor Sports Complex, Dimensions Leisure Centre in Burslem, and Wallace Sport and Education Centre in Abbey Hulton. She is donating the prize to a family member who lives locally.
