THE LICHFIELD 10K is one of the biggest and best sporting events in the area – Lichfield’s version of the London marathon, attracting around 1,500 entries each year, encouraging people to take up a more active lifestyle and raise funds for many local causes. Organised by Lichfield Running Club, it has gained a reputation as one of the premier events in the Midlands.
It is with great sadness that we have had to announce the cancellation of Lichfield 10k Road Race.
After facing every imaginable, and unimaginable, hurdle in the last 18 months the team are devastated by this development.
Due to ongoing roadworks within the city, and with full consultation, we have decided that we cannot guarantee the safety of the runners. There is not time to re-route the course. This is completely out of our hands.
You will shortly be receiving an email with details on how you can obtain a refund or to defer your place until next year. The date will be the 11th September 2022 and we’d love to see you.
We want to apologise to all of our runners, full details of the process will follow. We also want to thank all of our volunteers from Lichfield Running Club who have worked tirelessly to make this event happen. We will be back, and we will have our 25th anniversary race.
