Covid-19 Update - 02/04/2020
We know this may come as a disappointment, but following the latest government and England Athletics advice, Sutton Runners have decided to cancel this year’s Sutton 10K that was due to take place on Sunday 17th May 2020.
Like many other race organisers in April through to the summer, this decision has become unavoidable. This is principally due to the significant amount of non-essential travel and contact involved for runners and volunteers. England Athletics have advised against clubs holding events for the foreseeable future.

As per the terms and conditions listed on the StuWeb entry website, no refunds are given in the event of an uncontrollable forced closure of this event. However, in light of these unprecedented circumstances, every runner with a place in the 2020 Sutton 10K will be able to enter the 2021 Sutton 10K without any further payment. Next year’s race is currently planned for Sunday 16th May 2021, and your entry will be confirmed closer to the date.
We wish everyone well for the future, keep running, and we hope to see you at next year’s race!
