Due to Government and UKA / BTF guidelines all events in April are postponed (see below). All other events will stay open for the time being until further advice is available. Any future race cancellations will see competitors being transferred to the following years race.
These are difficult times for everyone, and we hope that you understand that these decisions are being made in the interests of athletes, volunteers and spectators.
RACE POSTPONED - Kirkbride Half Marathon
We are looking to rearrange later in the year if a date can be suitably arranged. Unfortunately, due to Government and UKA advice, we believe postponement is the best way forward. All entries will be transferred to the new date. If you cannot make the new date, we will transfer you into next year’s race. I'm sure people are disappointed with all of the race postponements and cancellations, but we believe it is in the best interests of all concerned. STAY SAFE.
