Run 4 Wales has announced that this years ABP Barry Island 10k has been postponed, after closely following government guidance.
In a message on its website on Monday, organisers said "We have been closely monitoring the situation surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak and the guidance issued by the Government, whilst making arrangements to ensure a safe race day experience should the ban on major public events be lifted ahead of Sunday 2 August."
"It is now clear that although restrictions on movement and social distancing measures may be relaxed ahead of the event – it will not be possible to stage the event this summer."
"Doing so as planned will risk the spread of the virus and place unnecessary additional strain on emergency services and the providers of medical support required to safely stage an event of this kind."
"We know that many of you will have been training hard, or looking forward to attending a mass participation event after a period of lockdown, but your health and that of our spectators, volunteers, event staff and the wider public is our main priority at this time."
Runners registered for this years Barry Island 10k now have four options.
In addition, the Healthspan Porthcawl 10k scheduled to take place on Sunday 5 July 2020 has also been postponed.
