Memorial Races

Update on 2020 Memorial Road Races

Given the on-going Coronavirus situation, it is with a heavy heart that we wish to inform you that the Heaton Harriers committee has decided that the club will not run the Memorial Road Races this year.

2020 would have been the 100th anniversary of the first Memorial race which has made this decision even more difficult for us, however, the safety of all runners, our club members and the wider public is our priority and we cannot in good conscience attempt to run the races.

We would like to thank NECAA and NEMAA for their understanding and support as we were due to host their 2020 championship events and to thank everyone who supports our races year to year.

We promise to return stronger than ever in November 2021 with a huge celebration of the Memorial Centenary and of what we hope will be a race packed 2021.

With our best wishes,

Heaton Harriers
