About this Event

Statement from the Organisers of the Kingspan Minehead Half Marathon & 10k Race 2020 - March 2020

Chris Spink, race director, says: “It is with great regret that we are postponing the Kingspan Half Marathon and 10K race until further notice. The race had been due to take place on Sunday 24th May 2020.

“The health and safety of runners, spectators, stewards and everyone involved in organising the race, is paramount to us and in the light of the recent Government announcements, WHO advice, and the continued uncertainty around the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), we have taken what we feel is the only prudent decision in the circumstances.

“Runners who have already registered will be contacted directly. They will be able to claim a full refund, or have their entry money transferred to the rescheduled race, or – if they wish – they can choose to donate it to our two chosen local charities for 2020: the Freddie Pring Memorial and the 1st Watchet Sea Scout Group.

“As tempting as it is to try and set a date now, we are aware that the autumn sporting fixture lists are becoming increasingly crowded with spring events that have been postponed. In addition, no one can be sure how long it will be before the virus is contained. We will, of course, let everyone know in good time, when a new date is agreed.”

The Kingspan Minehead half-marathon is set to return to the town on Sunday, 24th May 2020.

The race - along with the 10k run - will start at 10am on the Minehead esplanade and follow a looped circular route which has been marked out so that the runners will be going in opposite directions, increasing the fun for participants and spectators alike.

The event is being organised by a team from Kingspan Water & Energy, based locally in Wiliton. The company is sponsoring both runs, including cash prizes for the under and over 40 age category for first, second and third half marathon finishers, as well as medals for everyone who completes the course.

The half marathon is open to individuals over the age of 18, while entrants between the ages of 10 and 18 are permitted to enter the 10k race subject to parent or guardian consent via the Disclaimer form.

All proceeds will go to Watchet Sea Scouts which provide boating experiences for children and the Freddie Pring Memorial Fund which has been set up to raise funds locally to provide sports coaching and development to adults and children in West Somerset.

Online registration is required in advance, with chip and pin collection from 9am available at the Hobby Horse Inn on the day
