2021 Vitality London 10,000 update
31 March 2021, 12:00 p.m.
The following information will be sent to all 2021 Vitality London 10,000 runners by the end of Wednesday 31 March.
We hope you are keeping well in these challenging times and it’s good to see some sunshine as we begin to come out of the current lockdown.
We are getting in touch to give you an update about the 2021 Vitality London 10,000.
We are working hard to plan the return of mass participation events following the success of the rollout of the national vaccination programme. Sadly, however, it is not possible to stage the Vitality London 10,000 in central London on its scheduled date of Monday 31 May 2021, so we are looking for an alternative location and date later in the year. (Please note the virtual Vitality London 10,000 will go ahead during its scheduled window of Saturday 29 May to Sunday 6 June.)
We’ll send you regular email updates and share news on social media to keep you informed. Please add this email address to your contacts/address book to ensure you receive these updates.
Rest assured that everyone who had a confirmed entry in the 2021 Vitality London 10,000 on Monday 31 May will automatically be transferred to run in the rescheduled event. If you are unable to run in the rescheduled event, you will be able to apply for a full refund of the entry fee you paid or rollover your place to the 2022 event at no extra cost.
If you have a charity place in the 2021 Vitality London 10,000, but can’t take part on the rescheduled date once it is announced, you must speak directly with the charity to discuss your options as the place belongs to them. If you have a place from a sponsor and you paid the entry fee, then your options are the same as for a general entry runner – you will be able to apply for a full refund of the entry fee you paid or rollover your place to the 2022 event at no extra cost. If the sponsor paid for the entry, then you must speak directly to the sponsor to determine your options.
There is no action that you need to take now. We’ll be in touch with more details by 17 May, when the UK is scheduled to move to Stage 3 in the easing of restrictions.
Thank you for your understanding and please look after yourself over the coming weeks.
