COVID- 19 UPDATE – 1st June 2020

This is the message that we would never have wished to write but sadly, as a consequence of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and uncertainty around sporting events at this time we have to postpone this years North Wales Half Marathon to 2021. Due to the nature of this event, the window in which the event can be held safely around the tide times we are unable to find a new date for 2020. Every runner who has entered to date will be automatically entered into the 2021 addition, once the tide times have been announced for 2021 we will then confirm the date as per usual.
We understand this years event was apart of the 2020 Coastal Series and for you who are still wanting to claim your medal in order to complete the set, this can be done virtually. As medals and many other items like licences and insurance, timing chips all are ordered and paid for months in advance we have all the 500 medals as originally planned here with us. Full details on how to complete you run virtually and claim you medal will be shared before July. You will then have the opportunity to complete the event in the original month as planned.
Again, we are really saddened and sorry to have to share this news, but with our friends, family, staff, volunteers and participants all in mind we feel this is the best and safest option for everyone involved. We hope you can understand the situation we are currently facing and continue to support all our events in the future once safe to do so!
Stay safe, healthy and we hope to see you back on our start lines soon.
