We were informed this morning that due to the C19 restrictions that are now in place, that the event on Saturday 24th at Maze Long Kesh must be postponed to another date. It has taken 6 years to get access to the Maze Long Kesh site for a running event and we are deeply disappointed that it has to be postponed. We have been promised that access will be granted for future events so at least we can look forward to that.
We are now planning for events after the current restrictions, which are due to end in mid November, so all entrants for Saturday will have their entries deferred automatically to December 5th which will take place again at Maze Long Kesh with 4 distances as before. This date is also after the suggested closure of the restrictions in place in ROI so entrants from all over Ireland can still come and take part.
Provisional dates are as follows:
November 14th or 21st – Under age races for Under 10, 12s, 14s and 16s boys and girls plus 5k and 10k races at Down Royal
December 5th – Lisburn Festival of Running with marathon, half marathon, 10k and 5k (Maze Long Kesh)
December 19th – Under age races for Under 10, 12s, 14s and 16s boys and girls plus 5k and 10k races at Down Royal
December 29th – EIKON Festival of Running with marathon, half marathon, 10k and 5k (Maze Long Kesh)
