*** Stop Press – Race Postponed to 11th April 2021 ***
General information about the race can be found via links at the bottom of this page.
However the following statement was made by the organising committee on 4th June 2020
Kymin Dash Race Cancelled for 2020; new date set for 2021
It is with great regret that today we have taken the decision to cancel the Kymin Dash Race for 2020. As you can imagine this is a great disappointment to us as we run the race purely for the enjoyment of runners and for the charities who have received over £13,000 from the race and generous associated funding from Barclays Bank.
We were unable to hold the race on our original date of 29th March and set a postponed date for 13th September. Since then we have been monitoring advice on the easing of the lockdown from both the Welsh Government and Welsh Athletics. It now seems very unlikely that it will be possible to hold an event of over 300 people in September and that uncertainty makes planning difficult. We would rather give runners some certainty about the race and so we have decided to cancel the event for 2020.
We hope to be back with this really popular event next year and plan to hold the race on 11th April 2021.
For runners who have entered this year we will automatically transfer your entry to the 2021 race. If this is not convenient for you we will be delighted to reserve you a place in our 2022 race or to transfer your entry to another runner. Please let us know if you wish to transfer to another runner or postpone to 2022. We will need to know this by 31st December so we know how many entries we have remaining for next year’s race.
We apologise that we are not able to provide you with a race this year but hope to see you all in the spring sunshine next April.
An email will be send to our runners who have entered confirming this information over the weekend.
