We’re super excited to be supporting a brand new event as part of this year’s #WolvesMarathonEvents – the Paycare Half Marathon Relay! 🙌


We have signed up as a leading supporter of the Wolverhampton Marathon, providing financial support as part of the planning of the event, as well as a commitment to work with fellow sponsors Carvers to provide marketing and promotional support – how exciting!

The Wolverhampton Marathon is taking place on 1st September and will see thousands of participants taking part in a number of dedicated events including the relay race, cycling and wheelchair events, and mini marathons, with raised funds going towards its four causes — Compton Care, Scouts Wolverhampton East, the PDSA and Radio Wulfrun.

We are over the moon to be named the main sponsor of the Team Relay (the first of its kind!) and we are encouraging many of our own corporate policyholders to sign up. Whether you want to get involved with your colleagues, friends or family – there’s events for all! We are even putting forward a team of our own here at Paycare – who have been training super hard in preparation!


Our CEO, Kevin explained:

“We’re delighted to be yet again involved in the Wolverhampton Marathon and to support the organisers in making it one of the biggest and best events yet.

“The event brings together a diverse mix of individuals who are each committed to completing the course for many reasons, including raising money for a cause they care deeply about, or for personal health and fitness goals.”
