Cancelled for 2020

It is with deep sadness that we must announce that the 2020 Bermuda Half Marathon Derby has been cancelled due to the current situation with the Covid-19 virus.

We are living in uncertain and unprecedented times, and the safety of our participants, volunteers and spectators is our top priority. This was undoubtedly a difficult decision taken by Bermuda's leaders, and we must do all we can to keep Bermuda safe.

To those of you who had already registered, your race registration will be rolled over to next year's event.

We would like to thank the community and our sponsors (especially Argus, Burrows Lightbourn Ltd., KErin Oral Care and Bermuda Broadcasting) for their continued support, and we truly apologize for any inconvenience this cancellation may have caused. We know this decision to cancel may be disappointing but please try to stay positive and let's all look forward to a stronger, healthier Bermuda.

We look forward to 'Doing the Derby' with you all in 2021
