The St Albans Half Marathon is set to go ahead in 2021 after the long-term future of the event was secured.
Active Training World will organise and deliver the 13.1 mile run, scheduled for June 13, after a difficult year in 2020.
Martin Day will be the race director and the move allows its charitable work to continue.
He said: "After several years of organising the event, it’s a privilege to be joining the dynamic ATW team and being involved with a wider portfolio of events including major triathlons and duathlons."
ATW's managing director James Shipley added: "The race is a real highlight on the running calendar for Hertfordshire runners and their clubs, bringing together the whole community with a range of races to make running accessible for all ages and abilities.
"Martin joining our team will provide a wealth of experience and knowledge to ensure the ongoing high-quality of the event."
Trustee Katie Foweraker, said: “We look forward to seeing the event develop in future years and continue to raise funds for charitable causes.”
