Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19)

Updated Tuesday 17 March 2020, 21:10 GMT

The revised response of the UK government to COVID-19 on Monday 16 March and England Athletics’ statement on Tuesday 17 March makes it clear that we will have to postpone the Open 5, which was due to be held on Saturday 28 March.

We are working to establish a new date later in 2020 and will email you when this has been confirmed. As per clause 7.1 of the conditions of entry, this is a change to the event, rather than a cancellation.

Apologies for any inconvenience, thank you for your understanding and good luck in these difficult times.

Joe Feltham, Race Director
