Woodhall Spa 10k Community Road Race

It is with great regret that we have taken the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Woodhall Spa 10K and Family Fun Run which was due to take place on 6 June.

For the past six months, we have been working hard to find a solution to make the 2021 event viable whilst ensuring the enjoyment and safety of our competitors, spectators, marshals and volunteers, including discussions with Run Britain and the British Association of Road Races. Unfortunately, owing to the ongoing uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 and the lifting of lockdown restrictions we feel it is the most appropriate decision to suspend the 2021 event and give clarity by making the announcement now. The indications that restrictions on large group gatherings and social distancing will still be in place into the summer coupled with an inability for many of our volunteer groups to get together within their own setting let alone discuss whether they are able to support the 10K mean that the logistics for this year’s event just become too complicated.

We understand that this decision will be met with disappointment by our many competitors and supporters, but we know you recognise the responsibility we have to all our race and community stakeholders to stage a safe and successful event.

We look forward to hosting next year’s 10K race on Sunday 12 June 2022 and hope you will save the date to include us in your race calendars.

Please note – we will be supporting a virtual 10k and details will be published here and on our Facebook page in the next few days. Your support for this event will be greatly appreciated as it will be raising valuable funds to support Jubilee Park.

We thank you again for your understanding and send you all our very best wishes to keep well.
