Marking Hull's status as UK City of Culture 2017, the RB Hull Marathon will be holding an exhibition, kindly hosted by Hull College, to celebrate running within the city along with the cultural aspects of this year's marathon. Entry will be free to all.

Peter Naylor

The Exhibition will be from Friday 22 September until Sunday 24 September, opening times to be confirmed. Hosted by Hull College, local runner and award winning artist Peter Naylor will curate this exciting venture for 2017. One of Peter Naylor's most recent contributions, Pivotal Sculpture, has been a 9ft tall steel sculpture depicting 13 trawlermen standing in an overlapping line unveiled in March this year on St Andrew's Quay, Hull. The piece marks the impact of the lost trawlermen on the community.

The exhibition will feature:

The winning art installations which will be found enlarged within each mile of the marathon route on the road surface. Details of this Road Art competition can be found here.

Displays from the local running community, depicting the history of the clubs across the city and East Riding of Yorkshire.

A display around the history of the marathon, both from its origins in Greece along with its local history.

The designs of our new mile markers - more details to be announced by early May.

It is hoped to also feature photography from local enthusiasts of the running community in action.

The exhibition will also act as the Marathon Registration on the Friday and Saturday - enabling runners to both enjoy the exhibition and collect their race packs.

And there could be more!!
