“All runners who have entered the 2020 race will automatically be transferred to the new date but we ask that everyone monitors the official race channels for regular event updates.”
Ms Manson explained that race organisers will now work with stakeholders and partner agencies to plan the November event.
“As with all members of the running community, the nation and the rest of the world, we will continue to monitor COVID-19 developments and UK Government guidance for the months ahead.
