At Front Runner Events we’re receiving a number of enquiries on our position regarding the 2020 JCP Swansea Half Marathon due to the current Covid-19 pandemic.
We’re still planning and working towards delivering this year’s event on Sunday 14th June, and we’ll continue to work on this basis unless it becomes apparent that changes are likely or enforced.
Our advice to you, our runners, who are signed up to #RunSwansea with us this year, is to continue/begin your training plan where possible. In these times of uncertainty running can really help you to maintain calm and ease any anxiousness you may be experiencing and be a welcome escape.
Our friends at Realbuzz have produced this article that shows how exercise can help us relieve stress and anxiety.
We will continue to closely monitor advice from the UK Government, Public Health Wales, the Local Authority, as well as our own medical team in terms of what to expect and what to plan for in the coming months.
If there are any changes, we will of course update you in a timely manner with all the relevant details.
But for now, we’re planning on welcoming you to the start line in Swansea on the 14th June.
Good luck with your training and happy running!
The Front Runner Events Team
