St Coca's 5K Road Race
St Coca's AC 5K 2020 Cancelled due to COVID-19 - 26th April 2020
It is with great regret that St Cocas AC has taken the decision to cancel our 5K road race for 2020.
The safety of our members, volunteers, friends and the community are our overiding concern.
We are looking at the options available in respect of refunds or deferrals for those who had already entered this race and we will notify each entrant directly as well as posting an update here. We sincerely hope that the sacrifices people have made, and the measures taken allow us to return to some kind of normality over the coming months, and in the hope that may include races in the future, we will hold off on any decision regarding our 10 mile race in August.
On behalf of St Cocas AC may we extend our sincere condolences to those who have lost loved ones during this pandemic and to the many who have lost jobs or are challenged by illness, isolation or suffering due to Covid19, we extend to you our best wishes and hope that better times are not far away.
