THIS year’s Walled City 2020 marathon has been cancelled.
Organsiers say the decision was taken by “factors outside its control”.
In a statement on its Facebook page, organisers say: “It is with regret that the organisers of the Walled City Marathon have taken the decision to cancel this year’s marathon event, originally scheduled for 31st May 2020.
“The race has been cancelled due to a number of factors outside the control of the race organisers.
“We would like to thank all supporters of the Walled City Marathon and hope that they will continue to support the event next year.
“All entrants will be provided with a full refund within the next 14 days.
“We are encouraged by the continued growth of the 10-miler which sold out in record time this year and we look forward to further building on that event whilst working to prepare for the marathon again in 2021.
“We want thank you again for your continued support and look forward to welcoming you all at the start line next year.
“We will be releasing a further statement early next week.”
