Fast, flat and friendly 5k with family fun while you run!
Alderton 5k Run 2020 postponed to 2021
This post has something of an inevitability about it but I'm afraid that we have to cancel the Alderton 5k Run 2020. We hoped that restrictions would be eased in time to allow us to run but unfortunately the latest guidance from the Government and England Athletics require event organisers to demonstrate that they can run a COVID-secure event and I'm afraid that we haven't been able to find a way to do so. This is disappointing news for everyone concerned but I hope you understand.
As you know the Alderton 5k Run exists to raise money for Alderton Acorns our village Pre-School and Toddler group. Like many small organisations Alderton Acorns is having a difficult time financially and this cancellation will put further pressure on them at a time when they can least afford it. As such if you've entered in advance we'd ask you to please consider the options below carefully. If you can afford to donate your £10 entry we'd very much appreciate it.
Anyone who has already entered has a number of options:
1. Rollover your entry to the 2021 event
2. Donate your 2020 entry
3. Full refund
An email will be going out shortly to all advance entries informing them of their options and what to do.
For those who have not yet entered we'll be running a virtual event with loads of entries to 2021 up for grabs. Keep an eye out over the next few days for details.
I'd like to thank everyone for your support and look forward to seeing you in 2021.
Best of luck with your running and keep safe.
