Guernsey's Marathon, due to take place at the end of the month, has been postponed.

It follows Guernsey government's advice not to travel to or from the Bailiwick for non-essential reasons after three cases of Coronavirus are confirmed in the Channel Islands.

The event was scheduled for Sunday 29 March 2020.

It is in the best interest of our runners, stakeholders and the wider community that we postpone the Guernsey Marathon event to a later date in the year, to support the island's wider efforts to contain the spread of the virus.
