Carrollton Half Marathon is cancelled

The 2020 Carrollton Half Marathon has been cancelled due to the unpredictability of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic. The decision comes after careful deliberation by the Carrollton Half Marathon committee, City of Carrollton staff, board of West Georgia Track Club, and medical and public agency leaders in an effort to keep participants, volunteers, spectators, and the community safe and not detract valuable resources away from the local health facilities.

This would have marked the 2nd annual Carrollton Half Marathon.

"Taking into account the state of the COVID-19 pandemic and the necessary planning of such an event, cancelling this year's Carrollton Half Marathon was the wisest choice to make for the health of our participants, volunteers, and overall community," said Anthony Nasser, president of the West Georgia Track Club.

Tyler Woodard, Race Director also added "the decision to cancel the 2020 Carrollton half marathon was not an easy decision to make but I do believe we made the right decision. There is too much uncertainty that rests in the current nature of large group gatherings and the last thing we want to do is put participants, spectators, volunteers, and all those involved at risk."   

The City of Carrollton and the West Georgia Track Club will be creating alternative offerings during the week the annual road race was scheduled to take place. They will include challenges, and a discount for next year's race.

The 2021 Carrollton Half Marathon is scheduled for September 18, 2021.
