ABP Humber Coastal Half Marathon & 10k 2020

ABP Humber Coastal Half Marathon & 10k 2020

Information and registration

20 September 2020

>> NEW UPDATE – 9th July 2020 – Live Race Cancelled <<

We have been closely monitoring the current situation with a view to doing everything we can to make this race still happen for you in September, with safety as our top priority. We’ve considered you as runners, the many volunteers that we need to host the event, the spectators, the contractors that we employ as well as the local businesses and local community. With no positive guidance on mass participant events at all from the government or England Athletics this has been a very frustrating and difficult task.

Throughout all of this we have been working very closely with ABP Humber who have been fantastic and very supportive. Taking into account the current situation, we do not feel it is right or safe to put 2000 plus runners through Cleethorpes with the current social restrictions in place. As a result, the 2020 live race will not take place. Whilst we know you will be very disappointed, as we are, we are sure that you will agree it is the right decision to make for all concerned. An email has been sent to all runners entered up until this date to fully explain their options.

We are back for the fourth running of the ABP Humber Coastal Half Marathon. New for 2020 is a fantastic tarmac-based flat 10k race.

So what do we offer?

Our ethos is for you to have a safe and enjoyable race day experience.

Distance 'drop-down' (but no rebate of the price difference) will be allowed between the half marathon and the 10k up to 9am on Monday August 24th. Please see this FAQ page for how to manage this change.

All transfers must be completed (as in the person receiving the entry must have completed their confirmation of the entry) by 9am on Monday August 24th. No further transfers will be possible after this date.

An administration fee of 3.5% will be applied to each order by our online entry system partner, Results Base.

Time Limit

There will be a strictly imposed 2 hour time limit for the 10km race and 3h 15 minutes for the half marathon.

This is a running event so we reasonably expect everyone to finish within these timescales This is necessary to minimise disruption to the general public due to the roads being closed.

Anyone who fails to reach the half way point 1 hour for the 10k and 1h 48 mins after the last runner has gone over the start line will not be allowed to continue in the race and will be offered a lift in the sweep vehicle.
