Still places. Unbelievable. I can only assume people gave up trying last week.

That's a shame. Not really a surprise though I guess.
Thanks for the update, MsG.

I've shared the post into the Fetcheveryone facebook group, but here is the statement for anyone not on FB..

Ely Runners New Years Eve 10k

Dear Runners

It has been agreed that the 2020 NYE10K will be cancelled due to the ongoing pandemic.

We wanted to make a decision early to ensure our runners and club members (who are the majority of marshals) were kept up to date. If we had agreed to go ahead it would mean arrangements have to start to be made now and costs incurred. If we leave a decision until later, organisers would have an awful lot of work to do in a short space of time, at a time when careful thought and planning would be required especially regarding everyone’s health, safety and well-being.

We are also mindful of the small village hall and toilet facilities used on the day and such a large, lovely crowd of runners and families. Things are slowly easing, but we don’t know if there could be a second spike or have any part in contributing in any way to one.

Finally, we also don’t want to cause any unnecessary strain or anxiety on the welcoming village of Little Downham and the residents. We are very lucky to have such a supporting parish for this large event and want this to remain.

The lockdown may ease more as we move forwards and by December we may be back to a ‘normal’ way of life but we just don’t know when and how, which makes planning this event so very hard. Our race organisers are volunteers and it would be unfair to add additional stress or burden on them also.

Believe me, we are just as disappointed about this as you may be.

What we do know is that we absolutely will be back in 2021 and boy what a celebration that will be!

We really hope you come back to our event then and continue to make the NYE10K the most special event it really is :-)

Thank you 💚

Ps......this pandemic sucks 😐
