COVID is still affecting events and major gatherings. The Children’s Cancer Run requires ambulance cover and key medical staff in attendance. It’s not appropriate to ask for additional resources or put unnecessary pressure on the NHS.
Many of our volunteers and runners will have children who are currently going through treatment or have vulnerable immune systems.
Our main concern will always be of the safety of our 10,000 runners, supporters, staff and partners and have taken this decision in the best interests of everyone involved.
