We have taken the decision to suspend entries to the Marcus Gynn Newmarket 10k 2020 for the time being until the Coronavirus situation is clearer.
If we do have to postpone the race, we will offer to transfer or fully refund all those that have entered. Please do not instigate a chargeback with NoChex as this will cause us further expense and work. Any questions, please contact me, firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your understanding.
