We have been considering all the options available to us. Due to Covid-19 and the vaccines not being available for the general public in time, the possibility that the 2021 Forest Marathon will not take place in the normal format is being considered. The main focus is to keep everyone safe.

In the case of timeous changes to the regulations regarding sporting events, that allows an actual race with up to 3000 runners the following will apply:- The migrated entries from 2020 (2900 total) and the early bird entries (100) will run the event. Medals and ordered t-shirts will be handed out at the event.
If we are not allowed to host the actual event all the migrated and early bird entries will be entered into the “2021 Virtual Forest”. The “2021 Virtual Forest” event will then go ahead and another 1000 entries will be made available. The distances offered for the “2021 Virtual Forest” will be 42, 21, 10km.
