Sunday SPRING 2021 | 3pm
It is with great sadness that we have to announce the postponement of the Children with Cancer UK Kids' Mile until Spring time in 2021 (Date TBC). We are planning to put on a socially distanced 10K inside Kew Gardens on the 12th/13th September. For more information, please .
We have been monitoring the ever-evolving situation around the Covid-19 pandemic and the latest government guidance day in, day out and we did everything we could. We have also hired expert data analysts, to try and put on this event in a socially distanced way but unfortunately the structure of these races with them running outside of Kew Gardens, means we cannot socially distance these two events. Our overall priority is the safety and health of our runners, volunteers, staff, contractors and the local community.
We are currently awaiting final approval on the two 10K’s and as soon as we have this we will contact you immediately with a final update and the socially distanced measures we will be implementing.
