To all Ruby Run supporters
Important notice about the 2021 Ruby Run
COVID 19 virus
On behalf of the Ruby Run Team, I would like to thank everyone who entered for the 2020 run (which did not happen because of COVID-19) and those who are thinking of entering for 2021.
There has been a lot of uncertainty concerning the continuing crisis and how long it will last. As you might expect, we have been monitoring the situation closely as we should now be completing some of the tasks to make the Ruby Run happen. It is now clear, however, that:
- the medical situation is likely to last for many months yet, certainly past the date that was set for the Ruby Run in June, which is now about 20 weeks away.
- we understand that the present control measures will probably still be in place in early June.
We are sorry that, for these reasons, and in the interests of clarity, it is now appropriate to cancel the 2021 Run and wait until next year before organising the next one.
To those who have entered, we hope that you will agree to our holding your booking fee over until next year’s race in 2022. If you would prefer to donate your fee to a Rotary sponsored charity or would like a refund, please let us know via the Ruby Run website.
This notice will also be posted on the Ruby Run Facebook page and a separate note has been sent to those who entered for the 2020 run.
President, Rotary Club of Hatherleigh
The last Ruby Run was on Sunday 9th June 2019. We ran from Holsworthy to Hatherleigh.
Hatherleigh Rotary Club organised the event.
The overall winner of the race was Paul Piper, representing a London running club. Congratulations to him and to all those who took part. and we warmly welcome other visitors from non-local clubs to join us next year. They will certainly be challenged by our local club members and individuals!
We would also like to thank Rodney "Paparazzi" Parrish for taking the photos and for allowing us to display them; and a big thank you to all the sponsors and volunteers who made the 2019 Ruby Run such a success.
A sincere thanks to Made-Well CIC , our main sponsor for this event. Click on the image above to view their leaflet for further information.
