Run Balmoral

When the 2019 Run Balmoral races had to be cancelled at the last minute because of the pandemic we were left with thousands of unused t-shirts which had been pre-ordered months in advance.

But now they have found a welcome new home at a maternity clinic and orphanage in The Gambia - all thanks to the efforts of Braemar charity worker Charlie Denny.

Charlie has been supporting the work of the Sheikh Tihami Ibrahim Nyass Foundation in Kunkujang Keitaya for many years.

He has previously driven thousands of miles to Africa with goods and supplies for the Foundation which is run by a wonderful lady called Fatou Gaye.

Charlie was unable to make the journey on this occasion because of covid restrictions, but arranged for the t-shirts to be shipped to Banjul then onwards to Kunkujang Keitaya where they proved to be popular with all the youngsters.

You can read more about the Foundation here: www.sheikhtihami.com

CLAIM YOUR 2022 RUN BALMORAL PLACE TODAY - 31 JANUARY DEADLINE APPROACHES

We hope everyone is staying healthy and coping with the latest lockdown situation. Thankfully most of us can still get outdoors and enjoy some exercise.

As you know, last year we contacted everyone who entered the 2020 Run Balmoral event to ask if they wanted to defer their entries until 2021 or take a refund.

Many of you chose to defer to 2021 - and we were very grateful for that.

But, as you will be aware, we then had to take the tough call not to proceed with Run Balmoral in 2021.

This has proven to be the correct decision given the way in which the pandemic has remained a serious public health issue. It remains unlikely that mass participation running events will be returning soon.

In October we asked if those of you who had deferred to 2021 would be happy to defer again, to 2022. We are delighted that a large percentage of you have again agreed to do so.

But there's still quite a number of folk who have yet to reply with their preference.

So, we would kindly once again ask those of you who deferred to 2021 - and haven't yet responded - to let us know whether you wish to either defer your entry until 2022 or request a refund.

An email has been sent to everyone in this category so please check your inbox and maybe even your spam folder in case it has gone there.

To choose which option you prefer, please go to www.runbalmoral.com
click on the 'My Entry Preference' button.

Login to your Run Balmoral account, click the 'Make Your 2022 Entry Preference', and for each entry choose your preference.

When logging in, please use the same email address you used when entering previously.

You must make your choice BY NO LATER THAN JANUARY 31 2021.

If we have not heard from you by then we will be unable to issue a refund.

Take care and we'll look forward to welcoming many of you to Run Balmoral 2022.

Thank you

Entries for the 2022 races will open later in the year. We will keep you updated as to when this will happen. Take care and stay safe.

Will it be open after 31/01 for everyone else to enter? I last did this in 2019 but didn’t sign up last year as just back from injury.

I know 2022 is a really long way away - but could you advise which day the Bristow 15 trail race would be as Etape Loch Ness is the same weekend and need to defer my Etape 2021 place and not sure if I can do both - the trail run and bike ride. Thank you

When will remaining spaces open up to people who haven't already signed up?

Will there still be places available for those who haven’t entered?

Leanne, Karen have you both deferred for 2022? I had the first time but must've missed it second time round. Just done it now 👍🏃‍♀️

That’s you Hazel Paterson!!!Xxx

I think I got a refund but can I now enter for 2022 ?

Barry Have you done this yet?

Kate Wenham have you deferred? just done mine xx

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

We regret to announce that Run Balmoral will not be held in 2021 - but the event will return in 2022.

This year’s popular road and trail races were cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic and we have now decided it's still too risky to proceed with the 2021 event which was scheduled for next April.

Run Balmoral Chair James Knowles said: "It was a tough decision to take and one we haven't taken lightly. But, there's still so much uncertainty over how the coronavirus might develop over the winter months and how that might lead to a continuation of restrictions on large participation sporting events, that we felt unable to plan ahead with any confidence.

"Every year we need to commit to significant expenditure well in advance of the races, setting up and maintaining online registration systems, buying medals and t-shirts and ordering equipment.

"We suffered a significant loss this year and simply cannot afford for a similar situation to develop in 2021 as that would put the long-term survival of the event at risk.

"It would also be unfair on the thousands of runners who support our event every year if we had to cancel once again at short notice.

"Nor do we want to let down our sponsors, who have given us loyal support throughout, or the charities with whom we have worked with so successfully for many years.

"Runners who have already deferred their entries to 2021 will be offered the option of deferring again, until 2022, or getting a refund."

Knowles added that every option had been explored in a bid to put the races on.

He added: "The London marathon has, next year, moved from its traditional April date to a new one in October and the Manchester marathon has also shifted from Spring to Autumn.

"Unfortunately, that's not an option at Balmoral as the estate isn't available at other times of the year.

"Other running events are planning to go ahead with significantly scaled down numbers of competitors to meet physical distancing rules, and with no spectators allowed.

"At the moment there is a limit of 200 participants, including officials, at events. I'm afraid that wouldn't be a viable number at Balmoral.

"We also have to consider the safety of runners, their supporters and the hundreds of volunteers who help us every year. The local community on Deeside is very supportive of the event and we need to be aware of their concerns as well. All of this is of paramount importance.

"We are extremely disappointed to have taken this decision but is one which will secure the longer-term future of this event which was first held in 1998.

"The 2022 event has been pencilled in for the weekend of April 23-24."

That’s so sad, but quite understandable. Will we be asked to roll our entries over again?

Best wishes from all the Fit Like Joggers Club. We’ll certainly miss bringing the #seaofpurple to the Balmoral lawn, but we will be back, bigger and stronger in 2022.

Understandable given the scale and location of the events. We will support 2022...I'm sure many will defer their entries until then.

Gutted! But completely understand your reasons, missed this race so much!! Can’t wait to see you in 2022!!

Sensible decision given current climate. Will be all more special in 2022

Gutted but totally understand. I'll plan to be there in 2022.

What a shame, but understand the reasons why.

Disappointed but totally understand in the current climate. Will be there in 2022 🏃🏻‍♀️👍

Gutted but completely understand, I’ve got it in my diary for 2022 🙏🏼♥️

So sad to hear this 😢 but support your decision...actually missing the hill 😅 roll on 2022!!

Shame but the right decision at this time

Sorry to hear this news. Fingers crossed for 2022!

Right. 2022 then! Xxx

Sad news for us all, but you need to take these decisions in good time for your prep. Appreciated. 😁🏃‍♀️🙋‍♀️

Brave decision 🤞

Sad 😞 but understandable

Tim Dring here we go again. Groundhog Year 😭😭

Sara Anderson just as well we didn’t defer...

Understandable

Karen, Leanne, even longer to train now... Silver linings n all that 😜🙈🤣

Kathleen Macleod Shanks not sure if you’ve seen this

Oh dear! 😞
