In January, organisers announced there wouldn't be a 25th edition of the event but it will now be back in August.

Immortal Sport, working in partnership with founder Ludo Macaulay, have saved the Salisbury 54321. 

Organisers previously said that due to trying to replace key staff that have left and not being able to find someone to take it over, the 24th version in 2019 was the last one.

But Immortal, which also puts on the Salisbury Half Marathon, has stepped in and it will return on Sunday August 9th 2020.


There are a number of different lengths of races for people to sign up to.

You can choose to walk any of the distances, but you can only run the longest four:

  • 21km (half marathon)
  • 33km
  • 42km (full marathon)

But the walkers must not run or jog.
