The 2020 edition has been cancelled
The 2021 Thames Run will take place on Sunday 23rd May at 9:30


We are sorry to announce that the 2020 Thames Run on Sunday 17th May has been cancelled. 

The decision has not been taken lightly, but with the ongoing Coronavirus situation and guidance from England Athletics that no events should take place until at least the 1st June, we are sure you will understand that this is the right thing for us to do. 

We had considered postponing until later in the year, but as we are unable to guarantee that the event would take place in the autumn, we feel that cancellation is the only option.

As a community event raising money for Crowmarsh School PTA and Style Acre, we are a not-for profit event, with all entry fees going to good causes locally. As the race is not going ahead this year, we will automatically defer your entry to next year's race, due to take place on Sunday 23rd May 2021.

If you prefer, we will, of course, refund your entry fee. Alternatively, you can donate your entry fee to the Thames Run to cover the setup costs already incurred.

If you would like to donate your entry fee, or would like a refund, please email thamesruncommittee@gmail.com before 17th April. All entries will automatically be deferred unless you tell us otherwise.

We are sorry to disappoint you but look forward to seeing you all next year.

Take care and stay well.
