17/03/2020 Guernsey Athletics Club confirm the cancellation of the Easter Running Festival 2020.
As always, the health and safety of all the participants – runners, officials, marshals and other support services – are at the forefront of our minds when organising such an event.
We are all by now aware of the rapidly changing COVID-19 situation and in light of the measures being put in place to respond to it and concern for all involved, the Guernsey Athletics Club has made the decision to cancel the 2020 edition of the Easter Running Festival.
Competitors who have already entered can claim either a deferral to next year’s event or a refund by following the instructions on the website www.guernseyeasterrunning.com. No further entries will be taken.
We are grateful to everyone who has given their time and support for the Festival in these uncertain times to this point. We hope to see you all next year.
Endurance Director, Guernsey Athletics Club
We continue to reiterate the general advice to contain the virus in terms of general hygiene and self-isolation, which can also be found at (Guernsey) or for the UK here.
