In response to the continuing public health concerns caused by the global coronavirus pandemic, the event organizers, Pineda Sport, INDER and the Athletics Cuban Federation, have taken the decision to cancel the Varadero International Half Marathon, postponed to September 27, 2020 and all weekend activities related to the race.
Due to this decision, registered participants for the 2020 event will have the option to transfer their registration to a future edition of the Varadero Half Marathon and 10 Km, on March 28, 2021.
On March 28, 2021 we will offer you the chance to participate in our new distance: the Varadero Marathon, with 42,192 m. Offering the opportunity to the Running world to enjoy a new event in Cuba.
We have been forced to make this difficult decision because our priority is and will always be to guarantee the health of the runners and all the people who make possible the event celebration: volunteers, medical staff, police, citizens, judges, etc…
Together, we must take care of ourselves and maintain security in order to overcome this pandemic.
Sincerely, Varadero Half Marathon Team
