The Race Organiser can't wait to see you
Full programme of licensed events starts on Easter Saturday
The Race Organiser is getting ready for a cracking Easter Saturday launch of his extensive and varied race programme, following the easing of coronavirus pandemic restrictions in England.
England Athletics has announced its 'return of athletics and running' guidance after the UK Government's roadmap was implemented on 22 February. The key date is 29 March, when organised outdoor sport can return, and TRO will be hitting the ground running with a cracking Easter event in the wide-open spaces of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London.
The QEOP monthly 10K series kicks off on 3 April, when you will be welcomed in waves for a socially-distanced tour of the iconic London 2012 Olympic venues. Details are being finalised by Sport England and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport but that has not stopped a steady stream of entries from race-starved runners.
TRO promises slick COVID-safe event measures will be in place at all their races and there is always the TRO copper-bottomed COVID back-up that if an event is postponed or cancelled, you'll be able to move your entry to any of TRO's 150+ races throughout the year at venues in Greater London, Essex, Berkshire, Surrey and The Midlands.
April's highlights include the popular multi-sports Dorney Lake Duathlons and Runs (5K, 10K, 15K and half marathon) at Windsor on 17-18 April and the new to TRO's portfolio, multi-terrain Loseley Park 10K and 5K, near Guildford on 18 April.
Looking further ahead the Burnham-on-Crouch 10K in Essex on Sunday 30 May caught our eye. This multi-terrain race on the coastal wall of the Dengie peninsula is described by TRO as: “One of the most exhilarating runs you'll get all year, along with a mix of country field pathways and town centre streets. Delivered with the Rotary Club of Burnham-on-Crouch, this event is the best-kept secret of our races in the south - you won't regret coming to discover it”.
So for a huge variety of fully licensed road, cross country and multi-terrain races with all the necessary COVID-safe conditions in place and a COVID guarantee in the event of cancellation, Craig Thornton of TRO has this message: “With the announcement of the UK Government roadmap on 22 February, we're so excited to plan for the return of running events. Our team are working flat out to be first out of the starting blocks to get you safe, brilliant event experiences, in the best places, on the soonest possible dates. We can't wait to see you”.
