Runners, welcome to this update.
It is with regret that having reviewed the current situation in terms of the risks around COVID-19, and having received further advice from Sports Jersey and Environmental Health, the decision has been made to cancel the planned 31st edition of the Canaccord Genuity Jersey Half Marathon, this Sunday 8 November.
Having cancelled the June event we had hoped to be able to support our Jersey runners by holding the event later in the year and continue the 30 year history.
However, the increased risks around COVID-19 are such that Run Jersey Events cannot sufficiently control the potential risk of runners coming into fleeting contact with members of the public or breaching the one metre physical distancing guidelines. It is therefore with a heavy heart this decision has been made, albeit with the safety of our runners and the community in mind and also to ensure that the event can continue in future years.
All runners have been contacted by email with further details about an alternative Virtual Half Marathon. If you have not received this please check your inbox or contact [email protected]
The results will not stand in terms of the official records, but we hope this alternative will allow you to flex your limbs after the weeks and months of hard training.
Let’s hope that the June 13 2021 event will once again see 800 runners joined together in celebration at the starting line of the Jersey Half Marathon
Run Jersey Events and Canaccord Genuity Wealth Management thank you for your understanding and continued support in these challenging times.
