ABP Humber Coastal Half Marathon & 10k is Going Virtual
July 9, 2020
>> NEW UPDATE – 9th July 2020 – Live Race Cancelled <<
We have been closely monitoring the current situation with a view to doing everything we can to make this race still happen for you in September with safety as our top priority. We’ve considered you as runners, the many volunteers that we need to host the event, the spectators, the contractors that we employ as well as the local businesses and local community. With no positive guidance on mass participant events at all from the government or England Athletics this has been a very frustrating and difficult task.
Throughout all of this we have been working very closely with ABP Humber who have been fantastic and very supportive. Taking into account the current situation, we do not feel it is right or safe to put 2000 plus runners through Cleethorpes with the current social restrictions in place. As a result, the 2020 live race will not take place. Whilst we know you will be very disappointed, as we are, we are sure that you will agree it is the right decision to make for all concerned. An email has been sent to all runners entered up until this date to fully explain their options.
>> VIRTUAL RACE <<
Due to the continued support from ABP Humber we are delighted to host this year’s event as an exciting Virtual Race experience that will provide you with a fantastic environmentally friendly medal, bespoke t-shirt plus your very own running number. You will also be given a total of 2 weeks to complete the distance. See our Virtual race website for further details >>HERE<<
