The foundation is among thousands of non-profit organisations that has felt the repercussions of Coronavirus, but is determined to continue their work in promoting health and wellbeing and to fight childhood obesity around the North West. 

The Running Bee’s Chair of Trustees Carl Austin-Behan OBE, DL commented:  “Like so many other charitable organisations, we have been hit hard by the effects of Covid-19.  

“We planned for many months to ensure we met all the health and safety requirements in order for runners and spectators to be safe.” 

“However, with the continued impact of Coronavirus in Lancashire and across the UK, we must support Preston City council in their efforts to protect the community and the safety of everyone involved in our events.  

“We hope to be back in the Autumn and our thoughts and best wishes are with the people of Preston, the council and our fantastic sponsor SPAR.”
