Chippenham Half Marathon 2020 COVID - 19 EVENT CANCELLATION

With a heavy heart we have had to make the regrettable decision to cancel this year's event.

With so much still unknown about the decision on large sporting events, coupled with the fact that our race is a charity run and sponsored event we do not believe we can efficiently run the event given the short time frames. We operate on a very tight non-profit budget where significant costs need to be incurred months before the actual date.  Most purchasing decisions need to be made now but we cannot commit to them given the uncertainty on the lifting of restrictions in place due to the Covid-19 outbreak.

In addition to the above, we are now facing many clashes as the autumn calendar has become saturated and are faced with supply chain issues for our race finishers medals and shirts.

Please be assured that Chippenham Half Marathon will be returning in 2021 bigger, better and stronger!  Our “rainbow” finishers medal design will now hold an even deeper meaning to us all.

Our committee wish all our runners and participants good health and we can’t wait to see you in 2021!
