The Woodbridge 10K Road Races, due to open for entries this Saturday 14th March at noon, will be delayed as a precautionary measure as fears about the spread of Coronavirus continue.
Race event organisers, The Woodbridge Shufflers Running Club, hope that the race will take place as planned on Sunday 17th May, but are monitoring the situation carefully. Dave Alley, Race Director, said:
“We’re all wondering how the Coronavirus outbreak is going to impact our day to day lives, and for the Shufflers, this means thinking ahead to the Woodbridge 10K.
We’re hoping that the race will be able to go ahead as planned, but at the moment we just don’t know. We’re therefore delaying our race entries, so we won’t open as planned on 14th March.
In the meantime, we’re keeping a close watch on the situation, and we are hoping to be able to open entries in April. But we will follow government advice, which may mean that we have to postpone the race (and entries). We appreciate that runners won’t want to miss out on the chance to race, so please be assured that we will keep our Facebook page up to date with any news, as well as the FAQ page on our website.
We’re sorry that we have had to take this step, but we think it’s important to manage the expectations of our running community. The Woodbridge 10K is run entirely by volunteers, and we trust that everyone involved will bear with us as we work towards the best outcome.”
