Thanks to everyone that had helped to get it this far and to everyone that had signed up, refunds will be issued ASAP through event master.Stay safe!”

Sunday 25th October: John Haldane 2020 canceled in Newry

Drew Mc Kinley announced earlier this week already “The John Haldane that was rescheduled for Sunday 25th October is now cancelled. It feels like Déjà vu all over again with the Haldane back in March. The Haldane was rescheduled to take place in early October, but with the Clash of the Irish Champs, it was moved to Sunday 25th October. But with the ongoing Corona Virus and the Northern Ireland Executive unable to make a decision on what to do next it just feels any effort/time and money going forward will be wasted with further restrictions likely, and thus pulling the race at the last minute. Let’s hope we have more clarity for 2021 and get events going again, yours in Sport Drew
