The Swindon half-marathon, which was scheduled for four weeks time, has been cancelled because of a lack of money.

Organisers say they have been unable to raise the funds necessary to support the race safely - despite sponsorship deals and thousands of pounds worth of donations.

A crowd funding campaign to pay for the non-for-profit race only raised £2,250 out of a £27,000 target.

Runners who have signed up for the event will be reimbursed.
