Hoka Half Marathon & 10k - NEW DATE
Due to safety concerns and access issues relating to the weather conditions this event has been postponed until 19th March
"Our decision to postpone this event has not been easy. We also discussed with other organisers, our insurance provider, and Natural resources Wales. Under the terms and conditions of entry, all participants will be transferred to Saturday, March 19th 2022. We will also offer flexibility between other events in our network and support wherever possible. Thank you so much for being so understanding in this matter. Again we are deeply sorry. The safety of our participants and crew is always our top priority. Again, we're so sorry that this decision had been made, it was a tough choice. We look forward to seeing as many of you at the HOKA Half in March.
