Halifax Tough Marathon & Half Marathon

Taking place on June 28th, the 2020 Halifax Marathon a great way to bring your summer to an exciting and fulfilling start. Incorporating a half Marathon It's already on many "to-do" lists for the year!

The Route: is certainly a bit different. With a single lap for Half-Marathon runners and two for the Marathon, its a hilly opening few miles before a kinder run in to the finish. It's challenging, it's hilly and it's very much a taste of Halifax, with urban, upland, woodland and industrial heritage all mixed together!

The Charities: Our charity partners for 2020 are still TBC
they will be handing you out your finishers bags containing your t-shirt* + medal*. looking after you on the route and generally being the people cheering you on throughout the day.

Sorry but it's the sad news we think you were expecting!

We’re writing to let you know that we have made the decision to postpone the 2021 Halifax Marathon & Half Marathon but we are pleased to have a little positive news for you;

At this moment we do not have a new date set for 2022, it will however be in September at our new venue the ‘Piece Hall’ Halifax, a new route, new location and a new challenge, all in all, a fresh start for the Halifax based event, that's the good news.

The following is pretty much a repeat of the situation we have had with the Huddersfield event so bear with us as much of this is copied!

We have been working incredibly hard to try to deliver the race in a socially distanced format this year, ensuring a safe race day for everyone. We like many of our landowners were waiting on the news from Mr Boris on Monday, sadly as you are aware it was not the positive news we were expecting. There were still outstanding permissions that our going ahead was to be based around with the release from lockdown, as you can imagine they are now not giving us the go-ahead, without these, we simply can not go ahead. (we organise many events and they are all affected differently!)

We really hope you can join us for the new date as we look forward to welcoming runners to a safe and very special race day. As soon as we have this confirmed and all the permissions in place we will announce the date.

Your place will be automatically transferred to the new date September 2022. If you can take part on the new date, no action is required.
As we know you will understand, although we are hopeful that events will go ahead as planned in 2022, we are not in a position to provide an unconditional guarantee and will be keeping the situation under review. We will contact you nearer the time if we consider it necessary to change the format of events or to postpone or cancel the 2022 September event.
If the event is unable to go ahead in September or the format of the event needs to change to accommodate social distancing, or other measures, implemented by the Government or which we consider necessary in order to ensure everyone's safety, we will email you your options once we know more.
Cant make September 2022 - DEFER TO 2023 AT NO ADDITIONAL COST
If you can’t make the postponed event on September 2022, you can defer to the 2023 date at no additional cost.
If you select this option, later this year, (we can not do anything until we have the new date so absolutely no point contacting us!) We will send you a registration link which you will need to complete to secure your place in either the Huddersfield Marathon or Half Marathon.

We very much hope to see you on the start line September 2022
Any further questions please email [email protected]
Best wishes

Events 2020

sent by Organic Adventure on 07/05/2020 at 18:45

All 2020 events from April 1st through to August 31st will be moved to 2021 dates as follows, please see image. 

Your Entry

All entries already registered and paid up to May 7th 2020, will automatically move forward to the 2021 date above, if the 2021 date is not suitable we will move your entry over to the 2022 date for you. This can only be done in the month leading up to the event so please do not send us emails requesting this now as we will not be able to process them. We are hopeful that we will not have to add any events later in the year to the list. 

If you have already entered and paid your entry fee you do not need to do anything further. There will be no name changes or additional transfers for any of these places, they are yours for either 2020 or 2021.


We wanted to inform you ourselves! 

As many of you are aware there have been a few event companies go into liquidation over the past 5 to 6 weeks, leaving many people out of pocket with no option of a future event or anything. We fear many more companies will be joining them, we have lost a t-shirt supplier and at this moment we are uncertain as to where we will be able to acquire medals or other mementoes as many of those suppliers have disappeared as well. 

We know at the beginning of this current situation we had mentioned that we would offer a 60% refund to those who genuinely could not make an adjusted date for an event, sadly, after looking into the situation we are now presented with now, financially we just can not offer to do this without ending the rest of the events and the business.

Other Events.

The smaller events such as Urban Night Series, 4 Seasons 10k etc will all go ahead on revised dates as soon as we have the go-ahead from the government. We are working on a few new events that will join in as midweek races and will let you have more info on these, but again won’t be able to release dates just yet! 

Organic Adventure

It is not all doom and gloom and as we have always done we are evolving and growing, we have a couple of new team members joining us they are already working on the new events and will be taking over the race directing at many of the other events too (Wane knows some of you just cheered!) will tell you more about them in the next few weeks or as soon as they dare send a photo in for a little bio. 

We know this is possibly not the news any of us want to hear at the moment, but we feel this is the best way to keep the events going for us all.
