Race Cancellation

Published in Event News, Important Information

The Mablethorpe Marathon events are organised by a small team of volunteers. We are very sorry to announce that, due to ill-health of key personnel and circumstances beyond our control, the events scheduled for 1st October 2017 are to be cancelled. This is not a decision that has been taken lightly by the Committee.

In the 11 years that the Mablethorpe events have been operating, we have prided ourselves on offering quality, safe, well organised races. The Committee is not prepared to run a below par event.

We would like to apologise to all runners and supporters. All runners which have already registered will be reimbursed.

We apologise to everyone connected to the events for the inconvenience caused and we regret deeply the effect this may have on runners, local businesses, the local community and the Mablethorpe Town Centre.

We wish to thank everyone that has supported our events over the past 11 years. We will be back and hope to be able to rely on your continued support in the future.

Helen Nicholson, Chair of the Mablethorpe Marathon Committee stated “ We are devastated that the events scheduled for 2017 will not go ahead. We will miss the runners and supporters. The committee felt that it was better to have no event, rather than run a sub-standard event. We really hope that people will support our difficult decision”.
