Torbay Half Marathon Sunday 27th September 2020
We hope you and yours are well and we thank you for your patience and understanding at this unpredictable time. The Ocean Healthcare Torbay Half Marathon and 10k team have been busy reviewing this year’s event in reaction to the current situation.
We are humbled to have the support of our many partners and sponsors to enable us to postpone the event rather than cancel and we can confirm that both distances will be postponed to SUNDAY 27th SEPTEMBER.
We sincerely apologise to all those who have been training hard for June and especially those who have been fundraising for charities- we hope you can continue training and online fundraising to support charities who need your support now more than ever.
What to do next:
Nothing- your place will be automatically transferred to this date.
If you wish to defer (no refunds); if you can not make this date and therefore wish to defer your entry to next year, SUNDAY 27th JUNE 2021. Please follow instructions in the email you will receive from full on sport.
Transfer; if you wish to transfer your place to another runner, please log on to the registration page (link:http://www.torbayhalfmarathon.co.uk/enter_race.php) and amend your details.
Please remember we are a community event that runs to help raise thousands of pounds for local charities- we need your support this year more than ever. Please spread the word, share our social media updates (link to facebook:https://www.facebook.com/TorbayHalfMarathon) and encourage friends to sign up too. Don’t forget we have added a 10K distance this year (link: :http://www.torbayhalfmarathon.co.uk/10k.php)
We look forward to seeing you on Sunday 27th September!
Introducing the 'Devon Double'
We are also offering you the chance to take part in the Devon Double – a unique medal you can win if you take on two half marathons in our beautiful county in the space of just seven days.
Our friends at Britians Ocean City Half Marathon (Plymouth) will be hosting their rearranged race on 4th October– a week after our race in Torbay.
We have joined forces to support each other with an exciting new challenge medal called the 'Devon Double'.
If you run both the Torbay Half and Britain’s Ocean City Half Marathon, you will receive a special ‘Devon Double Medal’- received a few weeks after the second race. There is no extra charge for taking on this challenge.
We will also have prizes for first, second, third male and female categories of the fastest combined times for both half marathons.
Those already signed up: sign back in and check the 'Devon Double' box to tell us you are intending to do both.
