Cllr John Harrison, Executive Member for culture, delivery and public protection said:
“We know how disappointing this is, but we are sure that everyone will understand why this decision has been made. We would like to thank our partners Everyone Active, The Lexicon and our community volunteers who help make this event so special. We hope that you will join us next year in making the next Bracknell half marathon a real success.
Rob Morris, general manager at The Lexicon said: “We are hugely disappointed that The Lexicon Bracknell Half Marathon has been cancelled this year, but having reviewed the event with all partners, and considering current guidelines, feel this is the right decision to make in such unprecedented times. We of course look forward to making next year’s event even bigger and better, when we can come together as a community to celebrate The Lexicon Bracknell Half Marathon on May 9 2021.”
