THE Eastbourne Half Marathon 2021 is cancelled.

The race was due to be held on Sunday, 7 March 2021.

Event organisers have advised: “After much deliberation and with great sadness, the organisers of the Eastbourne Half Marathon have taken the difficult decision to cancel this year’s event.

We take the safety and health of all our entrants, volunteers and spectators very seriously and with the ongoing Covid 19 situation, especially locally here in Eastbourne we have had to take this decision.

Let us hope we can return bigger and better in 2022 and the date for next year will be Sunday March 6th 2022.

If you wish to take part in the 2022 Eastbourne Half Marathon and help support some fantastic local charities, further details can be found on the Eastbourne Half Marathon website.
