Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we have taken the very difficult decision to postpone the forthcoming New Forest 10 Mile Race that was due to be held on the 5th July 2020. We are now endeavouring to host the 35th anniversary NF10 race on Sunday 4th July 2021. The following points cover the rationale of why we are deferring the race to next summer.
Firstly: The most obvious is that there is no official advice as to when this crisis may end.
Secondly: Delaying to a later date in 2020 is not an option, many events are already rescheduling to September and October, and they may well have to postpone again. The NF10 has always been a summer event, with the race village and parking on open ground, the access in late Autumn could not be guaranteed after rain.
Thirdly: We have to work backwards from latest date for order, production and delivery from our suppliers for medals and tee shirts.
We hope you all understand that, although the decision was hard to make, it was in reality, out of our hands and we all have to follow Government Health advice.
New Forest Runners running club invite you to compete with the best and enter their friendly New Forest 10 mile event. Put Sunday July 5 2020 in your diaries and enter today. The race will be held, as usual, at New Park in Brockenhurst, in the heart of the picturesque New Forest National Park.
