Hi there

The Long Run

running into the distance

Yesterday's statements from the Prime Minister will mean huge disruption to our lives as well as the unease that comes with concern & uncertainty. Uncertainty is possibly the key word for the running community. The situation appears to be changing from day to day & is difficult to follow & make sense of.

Here at runABC South, we aim to keep our website visitors & eNews subscribers up to date with event postponements & cancellations, reports on what runners are up to during this difficult time & other relevant news. Like all of you we're playing it one day at a time but with an eye to better days ahead.

Stay calm, stay safe.

One of the key services provided by runABC South is our comprehensive events listing. Currently races are being postponed & cancelled on a daily (even hourly) basis.

We are trying to keep up with re-arranged dates but are anticipating further updates after the PM’s statements yesterday & also following further advice around mass gatherings.

Keep your eye on runABC South race listing with races listed as far ahead as October (some beyond then) & look ahead to brighter days of running, racing & socialising once again. 

Race organisers can register here & add race details to the listing.
