We are pleased to announce we have signed up as a sponsor for the Ilkley Half Marathon 2019.
The half marathon will be taking place on 14th July 2019, and as the intrepid runners pound the streets, quite possibly in the summer sun, they will be cheered on by hundreds of well-wishers as this high profile local event returns for another year, and this time with the support of Ison Harrison.

Supporting Ilkley Half Marathon
As well as sponsoring the event and also taking part, we are pleased to announce a new initiative that will help us to raise money for local charities.
For every runner that takes part, (that’s every single runner, not just Ison Harrison staff), we’ll donate £1 to the Ison Harrison Fund which will be used to support our local community through charity donations and sponsorship.
Ison Harrison Ilkley
Our Ilkley branch opened in 2010, and being situated centrally on The Grove it has grown to become one of our most successful branches, providing accessible legal help to local people and proving to be a vital resource for the community.
Each of our local branches aims to provide key support on everyday legal issues such as wills and probate, residential conveyancing, personal injuries and family law. We also have access to legal expertise in all areas of the law, so it is easy to see how our Ilkley office has grown to become a trusted part of the community, and hence why we felt it was important to contribute further to local events.
The Ilkley Half Marathon is organised by the Ilkley & District Round Table, who have raised over £500,000 in the last ten years, all going to local causes and all benefiting local people across the age spectrum. As a central feature of the community, Ison Harrison are proud to lend their support to something that brings the community together and also promotes health and well being.
Our managing partner Jonathan Wearing commented:
“Continuing our charitable initiatives from last year, we are really pleased to be sponsoring a prominent local event with the Ilkley Half Marathon this year. We are proud of our Ilkley roots and look forward to seeing the local community come together for the event in July.
There will be members of Ison Harrison volunteering at the event and we may also have some energetic runners taking part too! We can’t wait to be involved and cheer on our team.”
