Westbury 5K

**** Race Update **** 
 

Following advice from UK Athletics that all running events be suspended until the end of May. We have made the decision to cancel the May edition of the AVR Westbury 5K 2020 series. However disappointing I’m sure you’ll agree this is the right decision.

At present we are hopeful that events will be able to resume in June but if not there is still July and August events to come.  Once events are able to commence again we will review the situation and if appropriate and possible we will try to reschedule.

For those entered into the May event you can have your entry automatically transferred to the first available event once normal services resume. 

Finally I’d like to thank you all for your continued support, stay safe and see you all soon!
