CORONAVIRUS - A MESSAGE TO OUR NEIGHBOURS
THE LAST FEW WEEKS HAVE TAUGHT US THAT TRULY, WE ARE ALL NEIGHBOURS. IN BEING FORCED TO STAY APART, WE LEARN HOW CLOSE TOGETHER WE NORMALLY ARE.
Sadly we have now taken the difficult but inevitable decision to cancel this year's Race the Neighbours event. While we wanted to delay making a final decision for as long as possible, it's clear that an event of this scale will neither be permissible nor advisable in July.
All runners are entitled to a full refund. If you would like a refund please log into our entry site and then follow the link at the bottom of the page marked Refunds/Transfers/Instalments. However, if you would prefer us to donate your entry fee to a worthy cause (see below) then there is no need to take action.
This is a very difficult period for charities around the country, so we are also offering runners the opportunity to donate their fee to our official race charity, All People All Places. APAP do amazing work in supporting the homeless community in Haringey and Enfield. If you would like your fee to be donated to APAP then you don't need to do anything, your fee will automatically be forwarded to the charity if you have not claimed a refund by 10th July.
We are of course very disappointed that we will not be gathering together in July, but we hope to organise a free virtual race instead, more details to follow. And of course, we will be back in 2021. When we are finally able to congregate and race together, it will be that bit more special Until then stay safe and well, and happy running.
All the best,
The Race the Neighbours team
