THE 2020 Race for Men - Salisbury has been cancelled. 

The race had already been rescheduled once to the end of the summer, but an announcement from the race organisers has confirmed the race has now been cancelled for 2020. 

A statement from the organisers said: "It is with understandable disappointment that we announce the cancellation of the Race For Men - Salisbury in 2020.

"We had hoped, that our earlier postponement to the end of the summer - (during Covid 19 restrictions applying), may have given us a window of opportunity, but now following recent Government guidelines, with some easing of social distancing from the 4th of July in England, it seems not to have included mass participation sporting events.  

"Therefore, with the advice, and even with-holding of race licencing from UK Athletics, County Councils etc and the uncertain future for participation/sign-ups for the remaining 2020, the organisers have reluctantly decided to cancel for this year - and proceed with a meaningful and hopefully a fantastic 6th event in 2021."

The date for the 2021 race is currently Sunday, June 13. 

For those who had already signed up earlier in 2020 - the organisers are willing to honour your entry and roll-over directly to 2021.

For those who may have still considered entering for next year - they will keep the entry fee the same as 2020 until the end of the year.

Further registrations for 2021 at Early Bird prices, may take place from the week commencing July 5.

The race will include adult Female runners and walkers for the first time, and support for the Stars Appeal - when they hope to surpass the £50K for Prostate/Male Cancers - raised so far.

If not able to run, organisers always welcome volunteers on the day to help mount safely an excellent 3k, 10k and Half Marathon.

The statement added: "From all the Team at the Race For Men - Salisbury - please stay safe."
