Conwy Half Marathon

2021 race entry now open

Sunday 21st November 2021

 

EVENT UPDATE 16TH OCTOBER 2020

In the last update via email/social media/website we asked runners if they would prefer to defer their race entry until 2021 or complete a virtual version of the event.

Out of over 1,000 runners entered, only 32 expressed their interest to do a virtual version, therefore we have had to make the decision to defer all entries until 2021, based on economies of scale, it would be impossible for us to secure merchandise and the logistics for so few numbers.

All special early bird offers such as free Tech T-shirt upgrade and hoodie for £10 will be carried over with your entry.
We trust you understand our decision and look forward to seeing you all next year.

EVENT POSTPONED UNTIL 21st NOVEMBER 2021

It is with great sadness that we have had to postpone this years Conwy Half marathon!!

The health, safety and well-being of everyone at our events is paramount, so with the guidance as it stands we have made this decision in line with Local Government and Welsh Government guidance. These decisions are not easy, but with the guidance and regulations as they are, and unlikely to change in the timeframe we have left, this is the only outcome available to us at the moment.

Thank you for your support throughout 2020, we look forward to seeing you all in 2021.
Yours sincerely, Chris and team Run Wales
