Published on behalf of Run For All:
Following the UK Government announcement, advising the public to stop non-essential contact and all non-essential travel, and after consultation with the Borough Council of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk and Alive West Norfolk, we can confirm that the GEAR 10K and Mini GEAR, which was due to be staged on Sunday 3rd May, has been postponed until 2021.
Understandably there will be a lot of disappointed runners but the safety of you the runners and the public must come first.
The GEAR 10K and Mini GEAR will now be staged on Sunday 3 May 2021. Should current entrants not be able to make this date, they will be offered the opportunity to transfer to another event. We will be in touch with all current entrants in the coming week with further details.
Whilst we all enter a time of uncertainty both personally and professionally, can we ask that we all remember why these events take place in the first place. We are very proud of our community and not only the monies you continue to raise for charity but the support you offer one another on the build up and on the day itself.
Our team like you have spent hours, weeks and months preparing for these events and are as disappointed as you that we can’t deliver the events as previously planned.
Whilst we appreciate some will be frustrated by the news and the rescheduling of many events this year, can we ask that we all remember to be kind to one another.
Thank you for your continued support and here’s to seeing you on the start line very soon.
