Bay-to-Bay run cancelled

The 2020 Bay-to-Bay Run has been cancelled.

The event, due to be run for the 17th time on June 14, had been expected to attract around 3000 runners.

Last year's event raised more than $130,000 for local charities and community groups.

Festival director Ms Jenny Barker said: "Planning for the festival is a monumental task and one that the committee does not take lightly."

It took nine months to gather the necessary approvals, sponsors and volunteers to make the festival a success.

"With the current situation, we just could not see how it could proceed as planned," she said.

If the festival had been postponed, aside from having to reapply for approvals from Central Coast Council and NSW Police, the event would then be competing with events traditionally held in the October-November period like the Central Coast Half Marathon and Relay for Life, as well as any other postponed events looking to return around that time.

"Cancelling was the right decision."

The run would return on June 20 next year.

Both major beneficiaries of this year's festival, Camp Breakaway and Aspire, will be main beneficiaries next year.
