The Lake Vyrnwy Half Marathon, which normally takes place in September, is a hugely popular event, taking place in some of the region's most scenic surroundings.

Chair of the local organising committee, David Thomas, said that given the current situation they were not confident the event would be able to go ahead as wanted.

He said: "Things may have improved by September but, at the moment, we cannot foresee 1,500 people running around the lake and up to 150 participants mixing in our community hall so we have taken the reluctant decision to cancel the race again this year.

"We're looking forward to staging the race in 2022 and welcoming a bumper crowd."
