Press Report: No Spring 5 for 2021

WEST CHESHIRE Athletic Club has cancelled the 2021 Chester Spring Five Miles Road Race.

The accurately-measured and popular midweek event, first held in 1993, has been pulled because of Covid-19 restrictions.”After careful consideration and a review of the current guidance for hosting and organising road races, West Cheshire AC took the difficult decision to cancel the Chester Spring Five Miles Road Race which was scheduled to be held in April,” a club official said.

“This news is obviously hugely disappointing, but West Cheshire AC hope everyone understands the decision in the current climate.
“Under current Covid-19 guidelines and requirements from England Athletics, West Cheshire AC would not be able to organise the Chester Spring Five Miles Road Race in its usual format.

“We need to put the safety of our local community first and in the current situation we don’t feel we will be doing this if we try to put on the race.
“West Cheshire AC hasn’t taken this decision lightly and we understand that regular runners of the race will be disappointed. But please be assured we will be working really hard to make sure we are back in April 2022.”

MIKE LAMB was appointed club president at West Cheshire AC’s virtual online AGM on Monday night, with Jon Clarke (chairman), Dennis Wall (vice-chairman), Clare Mallon (secretary), and Darren Shillington (treasurer) all being re-elected as club officers.
