Weston Super Half will not take place this year, after the inaugural event was called off for bad weather.

The half marathon was due to take place in March but was unexpectedly snowed off.

However, organisers have confirmed it will be making a return.

They have managed to secure a date after ‘a few difficult couple of months’ and the 13.1-mile route will take place on March 24 next year.

The event, which is being promoted by double Olympic gold medallist James Cracknell, will see runners start on the town’s Grand Pier, in Marine Parade, before running along the seafront through Uphill and back again.

Booking for places is now available online at www.westonsuperhalf.co.uk There is an early bird discount offer where prospective participants can save £5. For more information, visit the event’s Facebook page and website.
