The Boscombe 10K Committee has taken the very sad decision to cancel this year’s 2020 Boscombe 10K.
Our usual race location at Kings Park Athletic Centre is due to be closed for refurbishment from August 2020 to early 2021. We had started looking into alternative race HQ and routes prior to lockdown, but as we’re currently unable to meet or get out and about to progress alternative plans, we have had to accept that this is no longer a realistic option. This, plus the uncertainty around mass gatherings as we move out of lockdown, has left us no option but to cancel this year’s race.
It's a sad decision for our club, you our runners and our event suppliers, all of whom will be in need of events like Boscombe 10K to lift their spirits and help their businesses once we are finally allowed to meet in large numbers again.
On the plus side, there are numerous clubs and race organisers who have already had to postpone their 2020 events. We are hoping by freeing up a weekend in the autumn race calendar, one of those affected may be able to reschedule their event to the Boscombe 10K weekend, without fear of clashes.
Rest assured we’ll be back in 2021 with the bonus of a super speedy new track for the start and finish of our race and you can trust Bournemouth Joggers to put on a fantastic event next year to mark our return!
We hope you are all keeping safe and well during these strange times. Keep running!
