Following on from the post at the beginning of May announcing the sad news that this year there will be no overall GP event.
Thankfully restrictions are starting to ease a touch and hopefully we may be able to have a few of the GP races.
Watch this space for further information at the end of June.
This Sunday would’ve seen the start of the 35th Pendle & Burnley Grand Prix at the 41st Hameldon Hill Fell Race.
After consultation with all the race organisers sadly we have to announce that this year’s event will not take place.
Following UKA and Government guidelines it is very unlikely that large groups will be allowed to meet for quite some time. We can all take a guess but at this time sadly it is unknown.
Depending on how things develop over the coming months we may be able to organise some type of one-off event so watch this space.
Sorry to bring such sad news but please keep doing the things you enjoy. Hopefully soon we will be allowed to run in small groups and enjoy meeting up with friends.
Until then please keep safe.
UKA (our governing body) have instructed that no races must be held before 31st May. Sadly this will impact the first four races.
At this time the plan is to still hold the event. It may be possible to add the races at the end but the longer this situation continues then fixture congestion will be a problem.
Sadly the 2020 event may have to be cancelled if things do not improve. Please help things get back to normal as quickly as possible by following Government guidelines.
Hopefully you can manage a solo run or with immediate family. Please heed the advice and help speed up the recovery process.
Take care of yourselves and your families.
