In a statement, the council said: “With the uncertainty that this ongoing pandemic has caused – we fully appreciate that many of you would have been looking forward to joining us in September to celebrate our wonderful community.
“But for your health, and that of our spectators, volunteers, event staff and the wider population – we believe that this decision was necessary to allow the event to reach its full potential.”
All entries will be automatically transferred to the new date.
Information about race packs, road closures and other details will be announced closer to the event.
We need your help. For the last ten years, Caerphilly Observer has provided an award-winning, balanced, and independent news service to the people of Caerphilly County Borough.
However, running a professional news service comes at a financial cost. Caerphilly Observer is predominantly funded through advertising and while this has supported us in the past, the future economic outlook in light of the coronavirus outbreak looks bleak.
We believe the public should be informed about their community, coherently and with context. We also believe that public interest journalism should not be put behind a paywall.
We are asking readers for their support to help us develop and grow our service.
Our membership costs just £3 a month and in return, you won’t have to put up with adverts on our website.
