SUPERHALFS LAUNCH POSTPONED DUE TO COVID-19

We are sorry to inform that both the EDP Lisbon Half Marathon and Sportisimo Prague Half Marathon have not taken place in March 2020 as planned due to the spread of COVID-19. They were postponed in an effort to help control the spread of the virus and because of instruction from government and health authorities around the staging of events. 

Both races have now been rescheduled and will take place on Sunday 6 September 2020. All runners registered for the events will be contacted by both event organisers with more details on arrangements. 

We recognise that the rescheduled dates are not ideal, falling on the same day and just one week before the Copenhagen Half Marathon –also in the SuperHalfs series.

Runners, citizens and global healthcare systems around the world face significant challenges in the days and weeks ahead. It is with regret that we have been unable to find a solution on dates to suit all runners, stakeholders and city governments, who are all dealing with the challenges around rescheduling and postponing all sorts of other events into a busy autumn schedule, leading to an unavoidable date clash.

We hope that a minimal number of entrants will be impacted because of the proximity of the original race dates in March 2020 and would like to thank runners for their understanding in these difficult and unprecedented circumstances. Thankfully, with a 3-year limit on completing the SuperHalfs series (starting on the day you finish your first race) – the new dates should not impact your journey to becoming a SuperRunner although we recognise – like most things in life currently, plans may have to be adapted and those aiming to complete the series in just 12 months will be unable to do so.

We know that you will have been training hard for a long time, and were looking forward to running with us in Lisbon and Prague, but the health of our runners, and people around the world is our main priority at this time and we respect the support and measures taken by local governments. Our thoughts are with those directly affected by the Coronavirus, their family and friends and the front-line health care workers around the world keeping us safe. 

If you were entered for any 2020 SuperHalfs races you will find race updates, details on your options and answers to a number of Frequently asked Questions overleaf or on the SuperHalfs website.
