RETFORD HALF MARATHON 2020
RETFORD HALF MARATHON and FAMILY FUN RUN 2021
Regrettably due to the ongoing uncertainty surrounding mass participation sporting events in the first part of 2021, the Retford Half Marathon organising committee, in consultation with our event partners, have taken the decision not to host the Retford Half Marathon & Fun Run in 2021.
Whilst we appreciate the disappointment this will bring to runners, the safety of our runners, volunteers and event partners is our highest priority and as a group we believe we are unable to deliver a great event experience whilst still complying with the current restrictions and social distancing measures.
Whilst clearly some of these restrictions could be lifted over the next few weeks, there is also the risk of more restrictions being put in place, and this uncertainty presents too much of a financial and logistical risk to us as a club to schedule and open entries for a race in 2021 with the potential to have to cancel ahead of the event.
We were very fortunate to be able to hold the 2020 event in March which for many runners will have been their last half marathon in 2020, and we thank those runners who did join us, along with those who have supported the event in previous years which has grown from around 300 runners in 2013 to well over a thousand over the last few years.
We very much hope we’ll be back in March 2022, and look forward to welcoming you back then.
We will provide further updates regarding the 2022 event in summer next year.
