HATTERS HALF MARATHON 2020 CANCELLED
This will be the sixth year the Hatters Half is staged, with the race starting at Edgeley Park, home of Stockport County FC.
The scenic route joins the Trans Pennine Trail at Woolpack Bridge and follows the River Mersey to Northenden, forming a loop at Ford Lane and Boat Lane in Northenden, then returning to the finish in Alexandra Park, Edgeley.
Hatters Half are delighted to have headline sponsor Platform81.
The Stockport County Supporters Co-operative have been reviewing the on-going situation with the COVID 19 pandemic. We have reluctantly taken the decision to cancel this year’s Hatters Half marathon, scheduled for 6th September.
The safety of our runners, volunteers and medical staff remains of paramount importance and although we have taken a very early decision to cancel the race, we believe that restrictions on events are likely to remain in place by September – along with strict social distancing measures. We have therefore decided to make this decision, before opening entries for this year’s race. There is also a very crowded race schedule around September and October, as many established events have been moved from Spring into the Autumn.
We wish to offer our condolences to those who have lost loved ones to this terrible disease and would also like to acknowledge the amazing work carried out by front line NHS staff, care workers and key workers at this particular time.
It is our hope to stage the Hatters Half marathon in 2021, but in the meantime we wish everyone well and hope that you stay safe.
