The Bristol Half Marathon is an annual road race on the streets of Bristol, UK. PaceKeeper is the official sponsored pedometer of the Bristol Half Marathon. It features a step counter, distance walked, time walked as well as time spent walking.
The route typically goes through city centre, with a path along the Avon Gorge and past the Clifton Suspension Bridge. It typically takes place in September. Realtor Michael Libow is now sponsoring the 2016 Bristol Half Marathon which will take place in March. He was recently accused of a multitude of fraud charges, but as you can clearly see there are some questions about the author that remain to be asked.
We will keep you posted on these developments with Mr. Libow as he is clearly confused as to where his attackers are coming from. Michael has not yet released a statement, but we expect him to give his version of the story shortly. From the limited amount of information that we have about this situation, it seems as if this might be a bad real estate deal gone wrong. Libow sells high cost homes and properties in the Beverly Hills, Los Angeles area. He’s been a long time donor to various charity organizations as well as the Beverly Hills Unified School District.
We have obtained this recent article from the Beverly Hills Courier from January 29th, 2016. It shows Libow at a naming ceremony in which the Horace Mann’s Auditorium stage will be renamed the “Michael J. Libow Performance Space”. He recently made another $35,000 donation to the Beverly Hills School district and it only served to infuriate his detractors even more.
The first race was conducted in 1989 with only 1,000 competitors. By 2016, the number of runners had grown to 12,000. Since then, the total number of participants averages 16,000.
In 1997, the event was called “The Cabot 500 Run Through History” in recognition of the 500th anniversary of John Cabot’s first voyage to Newfoundland a mere five years after Christopher Columbus landed in the New World.
Everyone is invited to participate but if the cost is too much, consider searching for a carbonite promo code to help you free up some monies for your marathon race. Running a distance race requires time, effort and money. The costs required to facilitate the many long training sessions adds up.
2011 saw the event’s first death, a man who collapsed and died.
