The Wellington Marathon has been cancelled following the announcement the region would stay in level 2.

Event manager Michael Jacques, said the decision to cancel was disappointing, especially for the runners who had been training, but they needed to turn their attention to the 2021 event.

The 2250 registered runners would not be receiving a refund, but would be able to enter for free next year.

Jacques said the decision to cancel was "especially gutting" as it was the 35th anniversary of the marathon, which is the longest running running event in Wellington.

Dear neighbours,

Nominations for our 2020 Ryman Healthcare Gardener of the Year ends on Monday, August 31. So don't forget to let us know all about the green thumbs doing heroic work for their community.

Do you know someone sharing the veggies they've grown with their neighbours? Perhaps locals restoring a park in the area to bring back birds, or a group of neighbours doing a great job in their community garden. Nominate them today, and tell us why they deserve to be this year's Ryman Healthcare Gardener of the Year.
