******** REVISED DATES FOR SUMMER SERIES 4 MILE ~ we will now hold 2 races and hope that this will allow as many of you as possible to complete the Series ********

Thanks everyone that responded to the poll in relation to the Summer Series 4mile. 

Unfortunately due to a clash with the England v India cricket match on 6th July, having spoken to the stadium and our need to consider the safety of our runners, we’ve unfortunately had to look to move the date. 

We want to try and avoid disappointment and accommodate as many people as possible, therefore we’re looking at running 2 x 4 milers.... Wednesday 4th July and Friday 20th July. We will then announce the Series winners after the 20th. 

If anyone can’t make either of the new dates and they signed up to the series, then please contact us so we can offer a refund for the final race, or transfer the entry to one of our other events.
