Guernsey Marathon Update - Race Postponed
It is with regret that today we announce the postponement of our first event, that was due to take place on Sunday 29 March 2020, due to the ongoing health concerns surrounding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
We have been closely monitoring the situation and impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) over the past few weeks, and whilst we had hoped that it would be safe and appropriate for us to operate the event, today's update from the Director of Public Health and clear advice to avoid all non-essential travel to the Island, means that it is in the best interests of our runners, stakeholders and the wider community that we postpone the Guernsey Marathon event to a later date in the year, to support the Island’s wider efforts to contain the spread of the virus.
The new date for the Guernsey Marathon 2020 will be Sunday 25 October 2020.
All runners who have already entered the Guernsey Marathon will automatically have their entries deferred to the new event date and our team will be in touch with every entrant over the next couple of weeks to pass on instructions for registration.
We apologise for any inconvenience that this postponement may cause but thank you for your understanding as we work to ensure that we can welcome all runners back to a safe Marathon event including the Mourant Relay Race and 2K Fun Run in October 2020.
The newly designed course will incorporate some of Guernsey’s most iconic landmarks and take runners through some of the Island’s most scenic areas the beautiful coast of Guernsey.
The race is split into three categories; Marathon, Mourant Relay Race (teams of 2 and 5) & Fun Run. The event will welcome a variety of runners from elite & semi-professional athletes competing for the top prizes, to friends & colleagues taking part as a team in the relay, to families having fun whilst raising money for their chosen charity.
