Organisers ‘devastated’ after cancelling Mablethorpe Marathon

The annual Mablethorpe Marathon has been cancelled this year due to the ill-health of key personnel at the event.

The marathon, which has been running for 11 years, was due to take place on October 1.

It is organised by a small team of volunteers and due to ill-health of key personnel and circumstances “beyond the organisers’ control”, the event had to be cancelled.

Helen Nicholson, chair of the Mablethorpe Marathon Committee said: “We are devastated that the events scheduled for 2017 will not go ahead.

“We will miss the runners and supporters.

“The committee felt that it was better to have no event, rather than run a sub-standard event.

“We really hope that people will support our difficult decision.”
