Dear runners, dear friends,
2020 is behind us. Very hard year that has changed our lives, with our passion for running and well-being growing even stronger during these difficult times.
Two months before the Napoli City Half Marathon we were ready to recreate the images that characterized one of the most beautiful half marathons in Italy, with over seven thousand participants from sixty countries around the world.
We were ready to welcome runners who would have run our event for the first time and others, who, year after year, are running with us and showing their passion for Naples and its half marathon.
We were ready to welcome them and their families and hear their stories as they get to know or rediscover our beautiful city; running the Twingo Relay and the Family Run & Friends with the children.
At the same time, as much as passionate and motivated we are to build, after careful consultations with local and international (political and sports) institutions, we have to announce that due to the public health situation we are forced to cancel the Napoli City Half Marathon, originally scheduled on 28 February, 2021. The safety of the runners is of utmost importance and we were guided by this absolute priority for our organization.
Irrespective of this unfortunate development, we will remain close to the runners, we wish to motivate them to keep on running and training, and we want to share our passion and commitment.
We are working on a digital event (virtual race + virtual expo) that will be announced in the coming weeks. All runners who have already registered for the Napoli City Half Marathon 2021 will have the options to:
1) Transfer their registration to the Napoli City Half Marathon 2022 sending an email to [email protected] with subject “Transfer registration to Napoli City Half Marathon 2022”
2) Request a full refund of the registration by sending an email to [email protected] – with subject line “Napoli City Half Marathon refund”. This needs to be done within February 28, 2021 at the latest.
3) Register for the Napoli City Half Marathon Virtual Race and ask, if due, for a refund of the difference in price between the cost of registration for the Napoli City Half Marathon and the cost of registration for the virtual event. In this case, please send us an email to [email protected] – with subject “Napoli City Half Marathon 2021 digital”.
We are looking forward to seeing you again soon,
Carlo Capalbo President of the Napoli Running Organizing Committee
