Last week 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 for our loyal fans of the race and look forward to seeing you back in 2021.
We would really appreciate everyone to get behind the michael Kelsall family fun for 2020.
The races will start and finish from Shobnall Leisure Centre, Shobnall Road, Burton on Trent, DE14 2BB. The course is suitable for wheelchair athletes. Changing and shower facilities are available at Shobnall Leisure Centre.
