*IMPORTANT SANDY 10 ANNOUNCEMENT***

*IMPORTANT SANDY 10 ANNOUNCEMENT***

 

Dear runners,

 

We regret to announce that the Sandy 10 and 3km fun run, scheduled for 5 April, have been postponed.

 

With the coronavirus pandemic causing widespread concern among the general public, and measures set to be tightened where gatherings of people in the UK are concerned, the last thing any of us want to do is feel we are putting our runners and volunteers at risk, or adding to anyone's sense of unease.

 

One of the following options will be available to all entrants:

• Deferment to the new race date (date TBC)

• Withdrawal from the field and donation of entry fee to our charity, Sue Ryder St John's

OR

• FULL refund for those unable to make the new date

 

We will email you soon to begin these processes – you will have plenty of time to decide which option you prefer.

 

Our races pride themselves on being among the sporting highlights of the local calendar, and we don't want our community to feel that a 600-strong field running in their streets is anything to be frightened of.

Instead this course of action and the options above are our way of showing those around us that we put them first – we are certainly mindful of the financial pressures some families will face in the coming weeks and months.

 

The race committee is now exploring dates later in the year, using the rescheduled London Marathon on 4 October as a pointer.

Each year many of our runners use the Sandy 10 as a key part of their training for London, and we would love to be a part of that once more.

 

Moving our events to later in the year does however raise many logistical headaches, not least slotting into an already packed athletics calendar.

For our part we will move quickly to re-book our suppliers, many of whom rely on races such as ours for their income – it is not lost on us that it is an extremely stressful time to be in the events business.

 

We will also liaise with our neighbouring clubs to try our utmost to ensure we do not clash with events of their own.

It is not a straightforward task – please bear with us and we will update you once progress has been made.

 

This is an extraordinary situation for race organisers everywhere, but the health of our runners and volunteers, and by extension that of the wider public, comes way before the importance of our events.

Still, we at the Sandy 10 are extremely sorry for any stress and inconvenience that these race postponements add during these difficult times.

 

Once we are in a position to do so, we fully intend to make it up to you.

 

Many thanks for your understanding.

 

Stuart Goodwin

Race director, Sandy 10

 



SANDY 10 RACE UPDATE - 14th March

SANDY 10 – RACE UPDATE

 

Dear runners,

 

We at the Sandy 10 are of course tracking the latest coronavirus advice and developments. As things stand nobody is telling us not to proceed with the race on 5 April and no measures are in place to prevent us doing so. However, if that changes we will of course act accordingly.

 

Please bear with us – we know it’s an extremely stressful time to have imminent events in your diary, particularly when you’ve dedicated so much time to training. The Sandy 10 team have worked incredibly hard to put on a brilliant race for you, and we feel that stress too.

 

We also appreciate that this is an awful time for our suppliers, some of whom are small businesses completely reliant on income from races such as ours. We will do everything to help bring clarity as soon as we can.

 

Many thanks,

 

Stuart Goodwin

Race director, Sandy 10
