The 1st Oct 23 Lichfield Half-Marathon has had to be cancelled.
The event business as a whole has suffered terribly with many similar companies going out of business, including lots of our suppliers. Taking with them lots of runners entry fee’s with no chance of a refund.
In 2022 we made the decision to go ahead with the Lichfield Half Marathon event though we knew we were going to lose thousands of pounds due to lower entry levels and increased logistic costs. But we wanted to bring our loyal participants a well needed event.
Things have improved and the Tamworth 10k and the iconic Fradley 10k were good entry numbers in 2022. However with less than seven weeks to go until the 2023 Lichfield Half Marathon entries are again very low and we are unable to sustain a similar financial loss again, or KP Events will be unable to continue. So unfortunately I have to inform you that the 2023 Lichfield Half Marathon will not take place this year.
But it’s not all bad news!! We would like to make you a very special offer. The entry fee for the Lichfield Half Marathon was £30.00. The combined entry fees for the Tamworth 10k and the Fradley 10k are £54.00, so we would like to transfer your entry to both of these races for you at no extra cost to you.
If you are already entered in to either of these races then we will of course offer you a refund instead. We hope all runners will take up this fabulous offer, which will allow us to stage these two great events for you, and continue as a business.
Thank you again for your support. If you have any questions please email email@example.com If we do not hear from you by September 10th then we will automatically transfer you to both of these races.
