Connecting Crouch End and Hornsey with news, views and information

I've heard a rumour that there might not be a Crouch End 10k this year.

Last year's was billed as the 22nd so it would be a shame for a well established event to close down if this is true.

The reasons I've been given for its possible end include:

  • staff turnover at the YMCA
  • problems with safety as the runners cross Priory Road on their way back into Priory Park
  • increasing costs of paramedics and police to help maintain safety at the event

What has anyone else heard?

Hi Adrian,

Plans are in place for the 23rd YMCA Fun Run & Festival to take place on Sunday 19th May.  There are always challenges in putting on such a big event, but this is made easier by the wealth of support from partners and volunteers that have made the event what it is today.

Don't hang up your trainers!
