Green Leek Run

NEXT EVENT: SUMMER/AUTUMN 2022 (TBC)

Due to COVID-19, we do not plan to hold an event in 2021

NEXT EVENT: SUMMER/AUTUMN 2022 (TBC)

Dear runner, hope you’re safe and well. After consultation with our Green Leek Run volunteer group and associated PTFAs, we have taken the difficult decision not to hold this year’s 2021 Green Leek Run, which had been pencilled in for Sunday, 10 October 2021. At a time when the country is relaxing restrictions, this may seem an unusual decision. However, an event like this takes months of planning and you will have seen in the news that there is now some emerging uncertainty around new variants, too.

This, along with experience of what happened last Autumn (gradual increase in cases) means that we feel it is inappropriate to open for entries and booking our various suppliers (racing timing, road closures etc). If the event were to be scheduled and then cancelled at short notice, this would leave us with significant financial obligations that we would be unable to cover due to the nature of this not-for-profit event. We may also cause uncertainty and disruption to others, which we feel is unfair.

We appreciate many of you will be disappointed by this decision; we are, too. We can’t wait to put this event on again safely in 2022, subject to us returning to more normality.

Meanwhile, stay safe and enjoy your running in the meantime.
