 We have been closely monitoring the ever-evolving situation around the Covid-19 pandemic, the latest government guidance and developments emerging throughout the events industry.

 We have taken into consideration the responses and comments received as part of our decision making. A huge number of people have said they would not be comfortable taking part in the event in 2020.

 It is clear that mass-participation events this year are inappropriate. It is with regret and a heavy heart that we announce the cancellation of the Lion Quays Ellesmere 10K on 3Oth August 2020.

Our overriding priority is the safety, health and wellbeing of our runners, staff, contractors, volunteers, spectators, and the local community.

 Runners registered for our event will be contacted confirming the cancellation and outlining the next steps regarding deferrals for 2021 event.  Places will be automatically deferred to next year.

We appreciate many of you will be disappointed with our decision and may feel frustrated. As a team, we have spent a significant amount of time exploring, considering, and planning numerous alternative scenarios, to enable the event to go ahead safely. The amount of uncertainty surrounding large scale events and the lack of clear direction has been challenging and has only extended the time to come to a final decision. We are sincerely sorry for this, and for having to cancel our race. It is not what anyone wanted but it is essential that everyone’s health and wellbeing take priority over all else. We would like to offer a huge thank you to our runners, sponsors, volunteers, local council, medical teams and other key stakeholders for their understanding and support throughout this incredibly difficult time. Please use this disappointing news as motivation for your next event. We certainly are! With the amount of new lockdown runners and the continued appetite for events within the running community, we are anticipating that the post Covid-19 demand for running events will be greater than ever. We will use this time to bounce back and prepare for the 10th anniversary in 2021.

We are looking forward to seeing you all cross our finish line with the smiles, sense of achievement and celebrations that our event is renowned for. Keep training, stay active, remain fit, healthy, and most importantly stay safe.

 Best Wishes, Paul Davies (Race Organiser)
