Reintroduction of Running Events on the Commons


Although competitive runs and sponsored events have been permitted across the UK for some time, we have taken a cautious approach to reintroducing them here on the Commons.

However, we will be starting competitive runs again in early May, with the first taking place on Sunday 2 May.

Starting at the Playing Fields, organisers will have COVID-19 secure starts and finishes in place. There will be extra marshalls along the course and we have restricted the number of participants to less than half the normal amount. Organisers will also stress to entrants the need to be respectful to other visitors using the Commons.
