The Sue McCann Harwich Runners 5k Series - UPDATE

We would like to confirm that sadly we also have to postpone the Sue McCann Harwich Runners 5k series for the dates that were originally scheduled this year. A decision that has now become inevitable as with all other sporting events. But also following the advice of UK Athletics who have confirmed this week that no races should take place before the 1st July. UK Athletics will not provide licences for races before this date.

We have been waiting to provide you with this confirmation as we have been discussing options for running the series later in the year. This is something the organising committee were keen to explore. We have carefully considered all options as well as a postponement until next year. At this stage, we have decided on a proposal to hold the series later in the summer of 2020. Subject to this being permitted by the UK Government advice about the Coronavirus.

We plan to offer the same 5k series of five races on a Tuesday Evening commencing on the 4th August. They would take place every two weeks and start at a slightly earlier time of 7.45 pm (to allow for the darker evenings). Of course, at this stage, this is only a proposal and will be subject to following the UK Government and UK Athletics advice given the current situation.

We appreciate that this may not suit every runner and you may, of course, prefer to carry forward this year's entry to next year's 5k series. At this stage, every runner who has a place in this year's series will have their place automatically carried forward to next year's series, with no further action.

However, if we can offer a 5k series in the summer starting with the proposed date of 4th August we will be in touch again in the coming months, to advise you how to proceed should you wish to pursue this option.

Kind regards Trevor Lewis - Race Director
