“We are still hopeful the planned 12 and 6 stage Road Relay Championships will take place later in March at Redcar with New Marske Harriers the host club but again it will be subject to restrictions and guidelines, both local and nationally, at the time.

“We will be releasing a further detailed statement on a number of issues soon.”
