St John Ambulance statement regarding the 2021 Waterloo Marathon and Ed Whitlock Half Marathon


We would first like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their understanding and patience in regards to last year's cancellation of the 2020 Waterloo Marathon and Ed Whitlock Half Marathon.

We have pledged from the start to be responsible with our decision process. St John Ambulance has been working harder than ever to make the 2021 marathon and half marathon ready to go on April 24th, 2021. There has already been a lot of time and effort allocated to make this event safe. We have also been adhering to the proper COVID-19 guidelines.

Please stay tuned for more information coming your way! We are excited to make up for lost times!

Please contact Tony or Scott if you have any further questions

Many, many thanks,

St John Ambulance
