Fleet Half Marathon postponed

Published at 10:11am 14th March 2020. (Updated at 10:27am 14th March 2020)

Organisers of the Fleet Half Marathon have postponed the race, that was due to be taking place tomorrow (15 March).

Fleet & Crookham AC say they have been monitoring advice from the government concerning the outbreak of coronavirus. 

In a letter to more than 3,000 runners, they've apologised for the inconvenience and said it was a hard conclusion to reach.

They added: 

"As a club, we will always put the health and safety of our runners, helpers, marshals and local residents first.

"This is not an easy decision to make the day before the event, but one that aims to ensure the wellbeing of the runners and the community."

Organisers are looking at whether to postpone the race to later in the year, or allow runners to defer their places to next year's event. 

They have asked for patience while they formulate a plan, and have asked runners to keep hold of the race numbers they will have been sent. 

More information can be found on the Fleet Half Marathon website.
