The eagerly anticipated date for the Four Oaks Financial Services, Lichfield Half Marathon has been announced. Event organisers KP Events have confirmed it will return on Sunday 9th May 2021.
The 2020 event, which would have marked the 10th anniversary of the race, was originally scheduled to take place on 10th May this year. Unfortunately owing to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and following consultations with local authorities and other event partners we can confirm that the race will not take place in 2020.
Paul Griffin, KP Events said “When we postponed the Four Oaks Financial Services Lichfield Half Marathon, which should have taken place on 10th May 2020, we were aiming to deliver this very popular event in October. Because of the on-going situation with the Covid pandemic this will not be possible. Participants will shortly receive an email with further information and details and anyone previously registered will automatically have their registration transferred to the new date.”
Martin Ward, MD of Lichfield-based Four Oaks Financial Services said “Our two year sponsorship of the Lichfield Half Marathon will continue, only it will now be for the 2021 and 2022 races. We are in constant touch with KP Events and the safety of the runners and giving them ample time to train and prepare for the race have been at the forefront of our decision making process. Many of the team at Four Oaks Financial Services, including myself and some of my family, will be running and we are now able to put a firm date in the diary and plan our own personal training programmes for the 9th May 2021 date.”
Four Oaks Financial Services and KP Events are working closely with local authorities to ensure that the 10th annual Lichfield Half Marathon will take place in a Covid-secure manner, fully compliant with social distancing rules and Government guidelines.
