It is with huge disappointment that we confirm that the 2020 edition of the Howard’s Group Weston Super Half will be postponed from Sunday 29 March 2020. To Sunday 13 September 2020.
Along with the rest of the UK, we have been closely monitoring the escalating Coronavirus situation. Following the most recent government press conference on the matter, we feel that it is only right to put the health of participants, volunteers, supporters and local Weston residents as our top priority and concern. We are therefore postponing the Howard’s Group Weston Super Half to later in the year on Sunday 13 September.
We would like to say how sorry we are for the inconvenience, and to thank everyone for your passion, enthusiasm and dedication in the lead up to the event. We know you will be disappointed as we are as it is only with your support and commitment that the Howard’s Group Weston Super Half is able to go ahead. We know how hard you have trained, fundraised, and we know how much you were looking forward to the big day, as participants, volunteers and supporters. As were we. But we know that you will agree that under the current circumstances, it is the right thing to do.
The good news! We have consulted with our partners, Howard’s Group, The Grand Pier, North Somerset Council and many others to secure an alternative date. We are pleased to be able to tell you that the 2020 Howard’s Group Weston Super Half will instead take place on Sunday 13 September.
Registrations will re-open for the Howard’s Group Weston Super Half and the Weston Community Mile and we look forward to working with you all to ensure that the 2020 event on 13 September is still as great a day as it possibly can be. We also encourage you all to spread the word and get others involved – as participants, volunteers or supporters!
