Nayland 10k
- Update

Hello Everyone,

Hope you are all keeping safe and well.

It is with huge sadness and regret that we have decided to cancel the 2020 Nayland 10k, 5k and 1k Fun Run. It has become very clear, that following the Government’s guidance and restrictions surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be unable to hold the event, as it would not be considered safe to do so.

This decision has not been taken lightly as we absolutely love holding this event, however the health and safety of everyone attending and taking part remains our top priority.

We know this will be disappointing but perhaps somewhat anticipated news, and on behalf of myself and the team, I wanted to say how truly sorry we are to have had to make this decision.

If you have purchased entry tickets for the 2020 Nayland 10k, 5k or 1k Fun Run, there are three options – 

-You can transfer your entry to the Nayland 10k on Sunday 4th July 2021 to guarantee your place


-You can request a full refund of the ticket cost (minus the booking fee)


-You can choose to donate your ticket money to our designated local charity, SESAW, Suffolk & Essex Small Animal Welfare. With some of you hoping to have raised money for this charity from your participation, donations are arguably more important now than ever.

Simply click on the following link where you will find a form to fill in your details and select your preferred option: https://forms.gle/cRwK8WV221xyjMYx5

I understand the commitment and dedication you make when you enter the Nayland 10k but your safety is our number one priority.  I hope you can understand why we have taken this decision and sincere thanks for remaining patient and positive in this challenging period.

On a final note, as by way of a “replacement” and to offer a fun challenge, we’re looking at the potential of holding a virtual running event but we’ll need to gauge how many of you would be interested in entering this type of event.  You’ll find a couple of questions about this at the bottom of the form and we welcome your feedback and any comments/suggestions.

All the best and stay safe,
