After Government advice to stop non-essential contact, the GEAR 10K and Mini GEAR runs have been postponed.

The events were due to take place on Sunday 3rd May but the new date is Sunday 25th October.

A statement from Run For All said there had been consultation with the Borough Council of King's Lynn and West Norfolk and Alive West Norfolk and this has been decided as the best course of action.

Run For All say they know there'll be a lot of runners left disappointed with this announcement:

"The safety of you the runners and the public must come first.

"The GEAR 10K and Mini GEAR will now be staged on Sunday 25th October.

"Whilst we all enter a time of uncertainty both personally and professionally can we ask that we all remember why these events take place in the first place.

"We are very proud of our community and not only the monies you continue to raise for charity but the support you offer one another on the build up and on the day itself.

"Our team like you have spent months preparing for these events and are as disappointed as you that we can’t deliver the events as planned."

Get into GEAR training sessions will also be postponed till later in the year.

Should current entrants not be able to make the new GEAR date, they will be offered the opportunity to transfer to another event.

Run For All will be in touch with all current entrants in the coming week with further details.
