The end of the road!
It is with regret that we have to announce the permanent closure of the Halifax Long March.
The committee have worked extremely hard over the last few years to make the Halifax Long March a success and this is a decission we have not taken lightly.
There are a number of factors which have brought us to this point, including increased competition from other fundraising events, reduced walker/helper numbers, and reduced interest from charities. In addition we have seen several of our committee members retire recently and we have been unable to find replacements. This means we no longer have the ability to organise and operate the event safely and, as such, we are unable to carry on.
We would like to thank all of our walkers, helpers, chariities and supporters for there participation and help over the years. It has been a pleasure and honour to meet and work with you all.
