Races publishing Covid-19 plans. This web page now includes several races planning to take place with Covid-19 restrictions. Where a race publishes plans for abiding by the Covid-19 regulations, the advert on this web page includes some details of those plans. All this may change if the Government alters the Covid-19 regulations. Above there's a button enabling you just to see those races that have announced some Covid-19 plans. If you know of any other road/trail races advertising their Covid-19 plans, then please e-mail me. There are also buttons enabling you to hide all the cancelled/postponed races so that you can easily see what may be taking place.
Although some race organisers say they are "postponing their race to 2021" on this web page that race is identified as "cancelled". And "postponed" is only used for those races which have a new date in 2020 or for those races where the organiser is looking for a new date in 2020. Races that have been converted into virtual runs are marked as "cancelled".

The Westonbirt House Easter 10K and Half Marathon was postponed from Apr 10th to Oct 31st. I'm been informed that "the Half Marathon has been cancelled as it goes through villages, so it would not be compatible with Covid-19 - entrants can transfer to the 10K or the 2021 event". I've also been informed that "the postponed 10K event will take place under Covid conditions". There are details about how the organisers make their events Covid-19 safe on this web page. In 2019, the event was on Apr 19th - the 10K was full on Feb 28th and the Half was full by Mar 19th. "Venue is Westonbirt House and Gardens." "K markers." "Chip timing." "Medal."

The event was postponed from Apr 5th to Nov 1st. However, this web page says it has now been "rescheduled to Sun Mar 21st 2021". In 2019 I saw this description: 'The closed road Half Marathon starts in Millennium Place leading onto Radford Road before heading into Allesley. As the race leaves Browns Lane, participants enter quiet leafy lanes with a gentle climb. - following this there is a 400m downhill run which leads into the final climb - the race is challenging but fun at this point which is about 8M into the run. Tamworth Road takes the runners on another downhill section back into the suburbia that is the Coundon area with great views of the city centre skyline - on the home straight the runners will head down Radford Road and reach their goal at the finish line on Hales Street.' In 2019 the 5K was 'a two lap, closed road city centre 5K'. "M markers." In 2017 chip timing was used. "Technical T-shirt, medal." "There is also a Wheelchair 2.5K." "Part of the  Festival of Running which also includes a Children's Mile and a Toddler Dash."

"The start is at the Crown and Garter Pub, Great Common Road, Inkpen Common." "The Hangover is a 10 mile(ish) wander around the beautiful countryside of Inkpen and Combe. The route takes in Walbury Hill, Combe Gibbet, and the  Test Way, with a good mix of road and off-road (footpaths and bridleways), and a couple of decent climbs. We also have a shorter route of 5 miles or so for anybody who doesn't fancy the full distance. The finish is also at the Crown and Garter Pub, with a drink or two in the pub afterwards. Note that The Hangover is a casual get together, not a formal race event, so there is no entry fee, and the only prize is a pint for the first finisher." Even so, in 2014-20, the organisers produced a set of results.

"Venue is The Dene, Hambleden." "The race takes place from the truly remarkable Hambleden Valley; mile  after mile of staggering Chilterns' beauty, picture perfect flint stone villages, country pubs and a fair few hills.
