It is with great regret that the organising committee has decided that it will not be possible to stage this year’s event in a Covid-19 safe manner. We had been hoping that it would be possible but it is likely that some form of social distancing will still be required and, in common with the organisers of other running events in September, we have decided that such conditions preclude the staging of the event.

However, members of the committee intend to go for 5k or 10k runs on the day (observing any distancing rules) and we encourage others to do likewise – including children fun running – and upload their pictures to the event’s Facebook page.
