* RUN FALMOUTH HALF MARATHON & KIDS RUN UPDATE *
Run Falmouth Half Marathon and Kids Run 2018 CANCELLED:
Over the last 24hrs, we have been monitoring the weather forecast closely in preparation for tomorrow’s Run Falmouth Half Marathon and Kids Run. Our hope was that the forecast would change and be more favourable to the events planned. However, with worsening conditions, a yellow weather warning for Falmouth and all of Cornwall, forecast heavy snow during the events, existing standing water on the course and sub-zero temperatures, we have decided to cancel Run Falmouth 2018 and the Kids Run.
We must put the safety of our diverse field of runners and our marshals, spectators and all other associated staff and volunteers, first. They are our priority and it is in the interest of ensuring the safety of everyone involved that we have made this very difficult decision.
We do not yet know if we will be able to rearrange another date for the events to take place.
We appreciate how disappointing this news will be and when the Fundraising Team is back in the office on Monday (19th March), they will be in touch with all runners.
Thank you in advance to all involved in understanding this very difficult decision we have had to make.
Oliver Hoare, Head of Fundraising, Cornwall Hospice Care, 17th March 2018.
Registration for the Kids Run is now closed. If you would still like to sign up you can do so on the morning of the event at the Falmouth Hotel.
Cornwall Hospice Care are proud to introduce Run Falmouth Kids Race, a brand new running event running alongside Run Falmouth Half Marathon 2018.
Run Falmouth Kids Run is in its first year and is organised and managed by Cornwall Hospice Care in association with the Falmouth Road Runners.
Setting off after the main race the Kids Run will follow the first mile of the Run Falmouth course along beautiful coastal scenery and Pendennis Castle.
