Coventry Half Marathon Update.

Unfortunately the Coventry Half Marathon has been cancelled due to the expected severe weather over the weekend. They have not yet announced whether this is to be rescheduled or not.

Below is the officil statement from the organisers.

URGENT NOTICE – Coventry Half and Children’s Mile 2018 Race Cancellation

It is with deep regret that the event has been cancelled due to the Met Office forecast of adverse weather conditions.
There is currently a Yellow warning for ice on Sunday for the Coventry area and an Amber warning for snow and ice in the North Midlands. There is also standing water on the route which will likely be frozen on Sunday morning and we are particularly concerned about the -8 degree wind chill and the safety of volunteers and stewards.

The organisers have not taken the decision lightly, and have consulted with the local authorities and medical support before making this decision.
We have taken this decision now to avoid unnecessary travel to the event.

A further announcement will be made in due course.

Many thanks for your understanding for this very tough decision.
