As sponsors of this event we are sad to advise that the Eastbourne Half Marathon that was due to be held on Sunday, 7 March 2021 has now been cancelled.
The event organisers have released the following Press Release:
“After much deliberation and with great sadness, the organisers of the Eastbourne Half Marathon have taken the difficult decision to cancel this year’s event.
We take the safety and health of all our entrants, volunteers and spectators very seriously and with the ongoing Covid 19 situation, especially locally here in Eastbourne we have had to take this decision.
Sadly it is all the various charities that benefit from this event, and others like it that are really affecting the desperately needed income. So if you are able and keen, why not still run the event virtually and still try and raise some much needed funds for Chestnut Tree House or St. Wilfrid’s Hospice.
To all entrants that have already entered the race for this year, there is no need to do anything – your place will automatically be transferred to 2022. If you are unable to run in 2022, your place can either be deferred to 2023 or transferred to somebody else free of charge.
If you have ordered any merchandise – this order will also be simply transferred to 2022.
Let us hope we can return bigger and better in 2022 and the date for next year will be:
Sunday March 6th 2022.
The health of all people is what is Important at this difficult time, and we would encourage everyone to follow Government guidelines to protect themselves and others from this dreadful virus.
Our thanks to everyone for your valued support and understanding.”
If you wish to take part in the 2022 Eastbourne Half Marathon and help support some fantastic local charities, further details can be found on the Eastbourne Half Marathon website.
