COVID-19 Update from MSMW 2020

We were hoping that the COVID-19 emergency would settle in time for MSMW2020, however with the escalating situation, the Mid Sussex Marathon Weekend team are currently in discussion with all parties involved in delivering MSMW 2020 to agree the best course of action and we will confirm our plans as soon as possible. In the meantime, please check the Nice Work Website for their statement about all their events.

We are committed to finding the best solution for our participants, volunteers, partners, and the Mid Sussex community and will keep you updated as this situation develops.
