Covid-19 : 2020 Races Cancelled
Both our races in 2020 - the 5 miles Team Race, scheduled for 21 November in Morden Park and the Championship Race planned for 19 December in Beckenham Place Park - are now cancelled due to problems associated with the Covid-19 pandemic. Principally these are difficulties with maintaining social distancing within a meaningful race format, and the difficulties in obtaining permission to use land for the courses. We can only earnestly hope that by the time the 2021 races are due to be held we will have turned a corner with this pandemic.
