The Eden Project is now open daily. All visits must be pre-booked online. Read our FAQS.

Organisers have been closely assessing the impacts of the global coronavirus pandemic and decided that to ensure the safety and wellbeing of runners, marshals, supporters, Eden staff and supporting teams, the races could not go ahead this year.

All registered runners will be automatically deferred to the new date, and are being emailed directly. 

We would like to assure all runners that we share their disappointment, but we are sure they will understand why the Marathon and Half Marathon cannot go ahead this year.

We send our heartfelt thanks to everyone for their patience and understanding while we have worked through these unprecedented times to reach this decision. The good news is that the Eden Marathon and Half Marathon will be back in 2021. 

To everyone who was looking forward to this year’s Marathon and Half Marathon and to all past and future runners of this event we say thanks so much for supporting the Eden Marathon and Half Marathon.

We send our very best wishes to all and look forward to welcoming everyone back to what promises be an unforgettable race in 2021.
