Well, the time came for us to face the facts. There was no way we could run this race without breaking physical distancing guidelines and putting our participants’ health at risk. The decision to cancel was easy but heartbreaking.
If you have already registered, you will receive an email asking you what you would like us to do with your registration money: credit, refund, or donation to the Legion.
The Glen Tay Block Race has been run every year since 1967 when it was resurrected as a Centennial project. History and tradition are important to Perth, so we don’t want to break that streak. If you can find the time to run the GTBR route sometime before August 25th, go out and run it, record your time, and send it to us (use our Contact Page). On August 27th (or thereabouts), we will publish your time on Results Page. Any time recorded on the actual route between July 12th and August 25th will be considered an “official” time for posterity. No need to photograph your time…we trust you! However, no medals or t-shirts will be awarded this year.
Like so many other events this year, our wee race has fallen victim to this global pandemic. But don’t worry, we will be back next year! Stay strong and keep running!
