It is with much regret that we have taken the difficult decision to cancel the inaugural Islington Half & 10K, scheduled to take place on Sunday November 15 2020.

We were initially optimistic that given its November date there was a chance that the event would be able to go ahead as planned, however following consultation with our stakeholders and the completion of extensive and robust scenario planning, it has become clear that it is not possible to do so.

The health and safety of our runners, volunteers, staff, partners and surrounding communities is of utmost importance to us and given the current social distancing measures that are in place and the ongoing threat of further surges in Covid-19 and the associated local lockdowns, we hope you understand why we are unable to deliver this event for you.

We’re so disappointed that we haven’t been able to deliver any live events this year, but we’re determined to come back stronger next year. We are currently putting the finishing touches to our 2021 calendar and we will be launching next year’s exciting series in the coming weeks – watch this space!

There are several options available to you for your Islington Half & 10K entry which are outlined in the email we sent to all entrants and in the FAQs below. Please make your selection before midnight on Sunday 6 September. Runners who do not make their selection before this deadline will automatically have their entry rolled over to Islington Half & 10K 2021.

To read our full cancellation FAQ’s, please see below.
