Bridport FREEDOM Half Marathon, 10km, 5km

Next Race: 07/06/2020

POSTPONED BRIDPORT HALF, 10km and 5km

NOW CALLED "BRIDPORT FREEDOM HALF, 10km and 5km"

After very hard and careful consideration, we are very sad to have to inform you of our decision to postpone the event due to concerns over public safety and the spread of Corona Virus (COVID19) and off course Government guidelines.

Beyond Events are committed to ensure that the Safety, health and well-being of our Participants, Spectators, Marshall's and Staff is always our primary concern.

However rather then postpone till 2021 at this stage the plan is to hold the event on the first weekend of FREEDOM, not just from this Lock-down but from the whole horrible Coronavirus, so be patient run and train when you can and think about the event as now a gathering of like minded people, forget times, forget speed, come and enjoy a run together, just because we can.

You dont need to do anything however if in the meantime if you want to create your own virtual run let us know (run@beyondevents.org.uk) and we will send out your medal

( when they get here, a literal slow-boat from china) 

THANKS TO ALL AND STAY SAFE

ABOUT THE ROUTE

The half marathon has a couple of tough hills, and the 10km just one.
