Burton 10 Mile Race Cancellation
Good Afternoon Everyone.
Last night we had a committee meeting and we had to make the tough decision to Cancel this years Burton 10 Mile race.
This was a decision we didn’t take lightly as this is our race that dates back to 1887… This decision was made due to the Construction work on the washlands and the fact it is underwater.
We have had communication with the council and advised they have stopped pumping water out of the washlands and the building work (Where the start and finish and car park is, would not be completed until later in the year)
We could of held the race but we could not guarantee the safety of the runners on the course and the quality of the race. The safety of our runners is paramount.
We will still be holding the Michael Kelsall fun run , that ran alongside the burton and we will aim the bring the race back in 2021.
We apologise to our loyal fans of the race and look forward to seeing you back in 2021
