Welcome to the website of the Washingbay Green Run
Statement Thursday 12th March
As the event committee of the Washingbay Green Run, the welfare of our community & participants is
always our top priority. Due to the rapidly developing coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, the event
scheduled for Saturday 14th March has been rescheduled to take place on the evening of Friday 12th
June. This decision-making process has been a very difficult one, but after deep consideration of the
wellbeing of our volunteers & runners the decision to postpone until a later date made sense.
At this time we kindly ask for your patience. Organising running events can be demanding and we have
realised that postponing an event can be even more problematic. We can confirm that online
registrations will remain valid for the revised date of Friday 12th June. We do understand that some
entrants may not be available for this new date, therefore our club can offer refunds upon request,
albeit we have been informed this morning by Athletics NI that we will incur a fee for each cancellation
which is unfortunate as a fundraising event. We kindly ask for your support at this time and we promise
to put all our efforts into making the rescheduled event even better than originally planned for all
participants & sponsors. Our donation to our partnered charity Pieta House of this year’s event will also
remain and will be presented over the incoming days. Your support is greatly appreciated.
We will try our best to communicate this message to all online entrants via email & social media
platforms, but we would appreciate your further assistance by spreading the word as best as possible.
Further information regarding race-pack and t-shirt collections will follow in the very near future.
Now into the 5th year of the event, and with over 1500 competitors taking part in the first 4 years across 3 distances, the Green Run continues to grow year on year. Whether you are a first timer or an experienced runner our event has something for you.
The first 75 online registrants will receive a free running vest and each finisher of their respective event will receive a medal for their efforts. Trophies will be presented after each race to the 1st male and female for each distance and cash prizes will be up for grabs.
We hope to see you on the evening of Friday 12th June.
