The Tenterden 10K & 5K Run and Summer Fair
Race date: Sunday 7 June 2020 POSTPONED UNTIL 6 JUNE 2021
St Michael's Primary School, Tenterden, Kent
A lovely countryside race starting in Tenterden. This event offers a choice of 5k or 10k distance starting in Grange Road, St Michael's. The route uses some of the country lanes around the area before returning to the school for the finish.
Sporting Events UK have put in place a series of options for those affected by the postponement of the Tenterden Run. The event will now take place on 6th June 2021. Those who had already registered for the 2020 event will be automatically transferred to the new date. As Sporting Events UK organise a large number of events in the region, the runners have also been given the option of transferring to another of the events currently due to take place in the later part of 2020 and in 2021. Barry Hopkins, from Sporting Events UK commented, “We are disappointed to have to delay the 2020 event. We are all faced with an unprecedented situation with COVID-19. It was clear the event could not take place in June this year – it just wouldn’t be safe for the runners, the volunteers or the local community. With the vast majority of our affected events we have moved these to later in the year when things will hopefully be in a better position. However, with The Tenterden Run this was not possible so we have moved it onto 2021. We very much look forward to returning to Tenterden and its amazing community in 2021 and to continue to support local causes and charities. A big thanks to everyone for their patience and understanding and we hope everyone stays safe until we see them next”.
In the meantime to stay fit during this time, you may be interested in one of their new Virtual Challenges on offer - relay or individual challenges over 5k and 10k. The details of this challenge are at http://www.sportingeventsuk.com/enterevent/virtual-running-challenge/
