Nottingham Christmas Marathon, Half, 10k, 5k & 1 Mile

Due to the national lockdown announced this week we have been informed

by the authorities that we have to postpone all events until further notice.

This means that we are devastated to announce that we have had no option but to postpone the Nottingham Christmas Event due to be held on the

5th and 6th December 2020.

Having worked hard over the past 7 months to make the event COVID-19 safe

spending thousands of pounds on the event along with all the merchandise and 

medals we have produced we have decided to offer an unprecedented 

virtual option with the value of the finisher pack costing more than the entry fee.  We don't want all the finish merchandise and gifts we had for the runners to go to waste.

Please read the details below if you have entered or would like to enter.
