The coronavirus has had a devastating impact on live events, with most of this season’s races cancelled or impacted, and live events are currently closed during lockdown 2.0

But the good news is that local running event organisers have responded by creating a range of virtual events to help provide a focus for training and keep you busy until restrictions are lifted
