Jack Bloor Races, Senior and Junior, cancelled for 2020
Next Race Tuesday 11 May 2021
To all our loyal runners of the annual Jack Bloor Races
Hello! Hope you’re all faring well during this challenging time
Alas, the 35th annual Jack Bloor Races will have to wait until next year when we hope to see you ont’Moor on the evening of Tuesday 11 May 2021 Meanwhile, thanks for your long-time support. If you feel able to donate all or part of your 2020 race entry fee to the Jack Bloor Fund that would be most appreciated. All donors’ names will be put in a hat to receive one of the coveted Jack Bloor Races small trophies! Also, why not go for a run on the evening of Tuesday 12th, somewhere near your home? The most original run will receive one of the redundant small trophies, you’ll need to donate as well to go into the hat!
Donations can be made via: https://www.gofundme.com/f/jack-bloor-memorial-fund The Fund has accepted several applications from young people this year although their various endeavours are currently on hold. We continue to welcome applications and will be promoting this opportunity further as outdoor adventure gets going again Thank you and stay safe From the Trustees of the Jack Bloor Memorial Fund
All monies from the Jack Bloor Races go to the Jack Bloor Memorial Fund (more info here), however we wish to raise additional sums to support more of the many quality applications received by the Fund each year.
