2020 Men’s 10K Edinburgh EVENT ANNOUNCEMENT

Over the past 4 months we have been working closely with, and drawing on the vast array of knowledge and resources available from, the UK and Scottish Governments, World Athletics, local authorities teams and medical teams to research, plan and work to adapt our delivery models. This was to ensure that, if government restrictions allowed, we were able to deliver a safe event for our Participants, Event Team, Partners and Suppliers. It is with deep regret however, we are sharing with you today that we have taken the very difficult decision to postpone the event until 2021. We think that it’s important that you understand how and why we have come to make this decision.

As you know, it is outside of our control to say when events will be permitted to go ahead, and sadly there is insufficient information currently available to allow us to estimate when this will be. The nature of the event demands a considerable amount of preparation, not only from our team and our delivery partners, but from the participants. Their preparation for an event will involve training, sometimes meaning they are dedicating many hours away from their friends and family, which for many is understandably unpalatable or impossible with the demands of home working, childcare and schooling at this time. For others it requires the booking of accommodation or travel and we feel that it is unfair to ask for your and their continuing preparation if we cannot make a firm assurance that we will definitely be able to go ahead with the event on the planned date. 

We, as a team, are devastated to be sharing this announcement with you. We know you will be equally disappointed and we are acutely aware of the impact that the loss of events is having on our affiliate charities.  We will continue to do everything we can to support them.

Current participants have a range of options available to them within their My Details account when they log in. If you are a current entrant, please log in to find out more and select your preferred option. These options will be available until the 25th October 2020. Please note that if you take no action by this date, we will automatically defer your entry to the 2021 event for you.

We’d like to thank you for your continued support of the event, and look forward to being back delivering world-class events again for you, and our affiliate charities, in 2021.

Men’s 10K

The first Men’s 10K took place in Glasgow in 2004, originally started by the Men’s Health Forum Scotland as a focal point for raising awareness of men’s health issues. The event continues to help thousands of guys on their journey to becoming a fitter, healthier and happier person. Men’s 10K events take place in both Glasgow & Edinburgh, and we want YOU to come along and take part. Maybe you’ve not done any exercise in a while and need a goal to motivate you, maybe you want to challenge your mates, or maybe you want to raise some cash for a worthwhile cause – whatever your reason, the Men’s 10K is the perfect opportunity for you to lace up those trainers and make a difference, either to your own life or someone else’s.
