SWITHLAND 6 2020 - CANCELLED

It is with regret that Birstall Running Club needs to cancel the 2020 Swithland 6 race that was due to be held on Sunday June 7th. 

In light of the further restrictions on movement put in place by the UK Government on March 23rd, UK Athletics and the Home Country Athletics Federations have extended the suspension of all athletics activity in England until May 31st. 

At present there is no guarantee the ban will end on May 31st and even if it did, it leaves insufficient time to organise the event to the necessary standards.   

Whilst we are disappointed in having to cancel the event, it is the responsible action to take in these uncertain times. 

Birstall Running Club looks forward to staging the race in 2021. In the meantime we hope you and your families remain safe and well.
