Thurlow 5M and 10M

Sunday 11th April 2021 – TBC
Thurlow, Suffolk CB9 7LA

Update 24th Sept 2020

Thurlow 5&10 cancellation.

After very careful consideration the Haverhill RC committee have decided to cancel this year’s Thurlow 5&10. Although we were confident that we could put on a Covid-secure event that meets the current guidelines, we were mindful that those guidelines were written when the UK was at Level 3 on the Covid Alert system. With cases rising the way they are, and uncertainty over what other restrictions might be brought in and when, we felt that this was not the right time to be holding the event.

Full refunds will be given to anyone who has entered this year’s event. These will be processed by racesonline in the next few days.

We are hoping to hold the next Thurlow 5&10 on Sunday April 11th 2021.

Held under UKA rules (Licence number TBC)
