Carlisle Resolution Run 5km or 10Km

Carlisle Resolution Heading 2

New Date – Sunday April 4th

Carlisle Racecourse, Durdar Road, 

Carlisle, Cumbria CA2 4TS

Race Update

Due to the country going back into a lockdown and the next review date set for the week of the rearranged race date, we have decided to forgo February 21st and have rearranged the date for Sunday April 4th. We believe this gives us the best change of staging the event and gives all competitors plenty of notice. It is not ideal to have a resolution race in April but it could very well be the start of the year when normality starts to creep back in. If this date does not go ahead the race will be cancelled until January 2022.
April is a big month for Sport in Action so we have our fingers firmly crossed for racing to return with the Carlisle Resolution on Sunday April 4th, 3 Village 10 on the 11th & the Kirkbride Half Marathon on the 25th.
We apologies again for any inconvenience caused.
Stay safe and healthy
