Sunday 19th December 2021
Unfortunately with the ongoing Pandemic and no clear date on when Wales will be allowed to host an event at the moment, it’s again with a heavy heart we have to postpone our RunFest Wales event to it’s back up date of 19th December 2021. As with all our decisions, we have tried to take everything into account during these strange times and totally understand another event postponement isn’t what everyone would like to hear. However, the decision is made in-line with both Welsh Athletics and Welsh Government guidelines and ultimately the safety of all the runners, volunteers and marshals during the event. All current entries will automatically be transferred to the new date.
We would like to thank you again for all the support over this past 12 months and we look forward to welcoming you back to one of our events very soon! The first race within our calendar now it set to be the North Wales Half Marathon 1st August 2021.
For now, stay safe, keep fit and we will all be back doing what we love again soon.
Please note, we are still working with local authorities and National Governing bodies to host this event in June. If COVID-19 continues to in-pack the safety of this event, we will be postponing to the back up date of 19th December 2021. Thanks for your patience and understanding during this difficult time. We will update everyone as soon as possible.
