COVID-19:
This event is scheduled to go ahead under strict Social Distancing COVID-19 measures.
Please be aware that the national or regional status of COVID-19 restrictions may change between now and the event date which could cause us to have to postpone the event. In this situation, all entries will be carried forward to the earliest date that we can run the event. We are continually monitoring the return to sporting events and liaising with the local authority and safety advisory group. It is important to us that we can proceed with absolute assurance that we are acting ethically and protecting everybody involved in our events. Please see our Covid-19 Safe Event Rules.

Update: 28/10/20 - At this point in time, we are unaware of any reasons the event will not go ahead.

Update: 07/11/20 - Providing lockdown ends on December 2nd, we are not aware of any reason the event will not take place as planned.

Update: 18/11/20 - Providing lockdown ends on December 2nd as planned, all permissions are in place and we are not aware of any reason the event will not take place as planned.  Entries close 16th of Dec (or when race is full)

Update: 05/12/20 - At this point in time, the event will go ahead as planned. We are also looking at all of the different possible combinations of a late Tier change for the surrounding areas and what impact that may have on our ability to stage the event.

Update: 17/12/20 - The change of Tier for Peterborough to Level Three has dealt a huge blow to the Advance Performance New Year's Eve 10k event. We have everything ready to go from the bibs stamped and ready for posting to the 1000 goody bags packed ready for race day. From the hundred-strong team of Crew and Race Makers to the 2-hour long start plan. The planning and preparation has been incredible for this socially distanced event. We have approval from the Safety Advisory Group, The Public Health England and all local authorities. So to have a tier change specific to the city in which the event is taking place, which then separates it's Tier status from the surrounding towns and villages is a cruel blow so close to race day. The Sublime board is meeting this evening to decide on the appropriate action. We will update this page this evening following the meeting.

Update: 17/12/20 - It is with incredible disappointment and sadness that we have to report the need to cancel our New Year’s Eve 10k – sponsored by Advance Performance.
We had planned for almost every eventuality. We could have even run the event within our covid regulations if the whole of Cambridgeshire went to Tier 3 because our Crew and enough Race Makers would be able to attend.
However, with the announcement today of just Peterborough going into Tier 3 and many of the surrounding areas remaining in Tier 2, this prevents travel into the venue address. England Athletics, our governing body and insurers state that travel to or from Tier 3 is not permitted to compete or officiate. It is almost the perfect storm that has struck just a couple of weeks before Race day.
The Team at Sublime have worked tirelessly in the run up to this event to make sure it was as perfect and safe as possible. Everything is ready, from the 1,000 plus goody bags all packed with size specific t-shirts to the 64 glass trophies all etched with the New Year’s Eve 10k logo.
The start list is prepared, and everyone’s race pack is stamped and ready to be posted tomorrow. We are truly gutted at this last-minute restriction being imposed on us.
We know how important this race was for so many of our runners, having received such lovely messages of thanks for ploughing on with the event when so many other events had made the decision to cancel and postpone. We were so sure we could make it happen and we got so very close to doing it.
I would like to personally apologize to our runners and Race Makers for this disappointing run of events. Whilst the decision has been taken out of our hands, I do not underestimate how disappointed you will be.
We are looking into a virtual option for New Year’s Eve 10k and will announce the details shortly for those that wish to take part, however the default position will be to transfer everyone to our Midsummer 10k in June, which uses the same venue and course.
We will write shortly to each participant with full details about all options, including the virtual NYE10k and the Midsummer 10k.
In the meantime, please accept our sincere apologies for this huge disappointment. On behalf of everyone at Sublime and all our Race Makers, thank you so much for supporting us and we look forward to seeing you all racing as soon as possible.
