Birstall Running Club committee unanimously agreed at a recent meeting that we had no other option than to cancel once again our annual race from Mountsorrel due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

We had to make a judgement based on the current facts and Government guidelines leading to lifting of lockdown restrictions in 2021. We do not anticipate mass participation events being permitted by early June when this year’s race had been planned for.

At these difficult times we realise also that it is important that we are also sensitive to the views of people living locally to the race, and how they would feel about the influx of several hundred runners and supporters in their area.

For various reasons we are unable to re-plan the race at a later date this year, but we are determined to ensure that the popular Swithland 6 event does continue into the future. In view of this we have provisionally set a date for the race next year, on Sunday, 5th June 2022.
