IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENTStatement regarding the New Bedford Half Marathon (Click Here)
March 11, 2020
It has been just one day since the decision to cancel the 2020 New Bedford Half Marathon. In that time, the Governor has issued a State of Emergency Order here in Massachusetts, and our 100% volunteer race committee has been working tirelessly to figure out the best path forward.
This has been an incredibly hard time for our team, many of whom have been involved with the race since its founding in 1978. The annual event is a coordinated effort on the part of 40+ vendors/suppliers, and 1,000 volunteers, so cancelling is a mammoth task on its own.
We appreciate your patience in the days ahead as we move forward to best resolve the situation related to the 2020 NB Half Marathon as well as to ensure the viability of this running institution for years to come. Please understand we will use the online registration email platform, which sends messages to ALL registered runners, as our primary method of communication. We do not have the capacity at this time to answer individual inquiries related to the disposition of this year’s race.
Thank you for your patience, and for your support of the New Bedford Half Marathon. We will update you all as we have more information.
