Clear front-runner in Swindon half marathon

There will be a clear front-runner in October’s Swindon Half Marathon – a Suzuki Vitara supplied by motor dealer Pebley Beach.

The lead car will be fitted with a race clock, and will alert spectators that the runners are approaching.

Dominic Threlfall, managing director of Pebley Beach, said: “Swindon Half Marathon is a great event and we’re proud to be a part of it.

“We like to support sport in Swindon – from football and rugby to ice hockey and speedway – and it made sense to add running to the roster of activities we’re involved in.”

This year, the 13.1 mile race is being organised by SEQOL Charity, the charitable arm of the Swindon-based social enterprise that provides quality care and support for adults in Swindon and the surrounding area.

SEQOL stepped in to save the competition after the British Heart Foundation – which had organised the event for two years – pulled out. 

Dom said: “We already have an established working relationship with SEQOL – they help us with our health and safety policies, and we talk to their candidates about careers advice and interview techniques.”

Corrina Sheridan, health and safety manager at SEQOL, brought race mascot Monty the Monkey to meet Pebley Beach staff, Swindon’s mayor, Andrew Bennett, Swindon Council leader David Renard, and Swindon North MP Justin Tomlinson. 

“It’s great to have Pebley Beach on board, and we are grateful for their support,” she said. 

The race takes place on Sunday, October 11. To register as a runner, or to volunteer or help sponsor the event, log on to www.swindonhalfmarathon.org.uk

Financial Disclosure

Pebley Beach Limited is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Pebley Beach Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
