Coronavirus disease (COVID-19)



Latest News 22/07/2020

We are unfortunately living in very uncertain times due to Covid-19 which makes planning an almost impossible task.

You may be aware now there are updated guidelines set by Run Britain which allows for the commencement of some events. We also have to respect & adhere to the local department for Public Health who have restrictions which only allows for groups of 30 to meet in a COVID secure environment. Whilst the Public Health Department has overarching authority we agree that we have to respect and protect runners, race makers, race venues but also the Lancaster & district population. 

In these circumstances and protocols we are unable to deliver the following events:
August / September
2nd August - Riverside 10m
16th August - Riverside Half Marathon
22nd August - Pilling 10km
30th August - Sport Lancaster University 5m

6th September - Golden Ball 10m + 20m

We hope everyone has been able to remain active and safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. We thank everyone who has taken part in our Virtual Lancaster Runs during this time.


It feels bizarre to say our last event was actually the Trimpell 20miles back in March, especially when you see our usual events.


This pandemic has obviously hit participation events and understandably is one of the last areas of life to return.


You may be aware that Run Britain will be issuing guidelines on how and when races can return. Until we have had a chance to review these guidelines we will not be able to make a definitive decision on a start date.


Lancaster is a small city and we have to take into account not only you the runners but also our fantastic Race Makers, Support Venues, First Aid but also the Lancaster and district population.


Our objective is to return when we can do so without reducing safety, inclusivity and also loss of local confidence.


Take care, keep running and we can’t wait to see you when it’s safe to do so.




Races after the 6th September please standby for further announcements.
