City Race 2020
It was not possible to hold the race in 2021. The COVID situation was too difficult.
We are hoping to hold the race again on 3rd September 2022.
UPDATE 17th June 2020
The 2020 London City Race is cancelled.
Given the current situation in England with Covid-19, and the impact of ongoing restrictions when applied to an urban environment, we have reluctantly concluded we are sorry we must cancel the London City Race weekend for this year.
We are making provisional arrangements for a ‘forest’ event to be held on Holmwood Common, near Dorking on Sunday 13th September as a substitute, should regulations allow. Some of the courses are planned!
UPDATE 17th March 2020
With the situation regarding the coronavirus pandemic it is not now clear if this race will go ahead. It will take some time for the situation to become clear.Results from last year’s race.
Here are preliminary details for the London City Race 2020 which we are delighted is one of nine races in the 2020 Euro City Tour.
The race is on Saturday 12th September 2020, in a complex residential area with scattered parks. As usual for the City Race the map is at 1:5000 and we have extended it from previous years. Longer courses will visit the newly mapped area.
The station nearest to the event centre is Canada Water, south of the river in the old Surrey Docklands.
