COVID-19 Update

By Great Run Team

*** UPDATE - 11.00 GMT Wednesday 18 March 2020 ***

Following advice from the UK government and England Athletics about the spread of COVID-19 we are suspending all Great Run Local events until further notice.

Where it is safe we encourage you to still get outside and stay active and continue to support others in your group in any “virtual” way you can. Please stay aware though; protect yourselves and others and follow the advice given by the NHS and Public Health England.

We’re disappointed to have to take this step, as we’re sure you will be too, but your health and safety is a priority at this time.

Our social media and email channels will remain open, though it might take a little longer than usual to get back to you.

We hope to see you at an event again soon,

The Great Run Local Team


*** UPDATE - 11.30 GMT Friday 13 March 2020 ***

We wanted to reassure you that at this point all Great Run Local events are scheduled to go ahead as planned. We are in close contact with Public Health England and will continue to monitor the situation regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus). If the advice changes we will update you all as soon as we can. 

We ask both runners and volunteers to remain vigilant and to refrain from attending Great Run Local if you have any flu-like symptoms and to be mindful of the more vulnerable members of your community.

In the meantime, please continue to enjoy your running experience with us.
