RUNNERS will not be refunded after Malaga Marathon was cancelled.

A total of 3,500 people were due to take part in the December 4 race, which had to be aborted due to the shocking floods.

Many had hoped to recoup the €35 to €65 entry fees but organisers will not pay out.

However, they have promised entrants ‘favourable and advantageous’ conditions should they wish to enter the 2017 race.

Alternatively, entrants can claim a free place in the Gran Canaria marathon on January 22.

  1. Marathons are usually held for charitable purposes. If this entrance money has been donated properly, it seems reasonable to concur. If, on the other hand, it was a private profit-making exercise, then the consolation offers are an insult.
