The Cock Crow 5k and Junior Fun Run 2020 – EVENT CANCELLED

The Jarrow and Hebburn AC Committee have made the difficult decision to cancel the Cock Crow 5k race and Junior Fun Run, originally scheduled for 21 July 2020. The event will not take place in 2020 and will return in July 2021. This is due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, uncertainty about the length of emergency measures, doubts about the availability of medical cover, and the desire to protect race participants, volunteers and officials. The Race Committee had considered moving the event to later in the year, but with shorter days and an already congested race calendar, this will not be feasible. Entries had not opened online, so no one should require a refund. We look forward to welcoming everyone back in Summer 2021.
