Unfortunately, we have had to cancel the 2020 Shelton Striders’ 10k event.
Having monitored similar events across the UK it has become clear that the measures necessary to ensure we met even the minimum safety requirements for mass events during COVID would not only be very onerous and difficult for the team to enforce but they would also significantly impact on the experience we could offer to runners (no mass start for example) and spectators (who would not be able to gather at the start / finish) whilst also losing our ever-popular race village.
We appreciate this is very disappointing news as we’re all desperate to get out and compete so we are planning to put on a virtual event, details of which will be shared very soon
We look forward to seeing you all again next year on Sunday 3 October. Save the date!!
