Sunderland Strollers Pier to Pier 2021


We are unable to hold the event in May following the reductions in activity introduced by England Athletics. We have examined the possibility of rearranging the event later in the year but the constriction of tides and clashes with other large local events means that this is not possible.

All current entrants will be automatically transferred to Pier to Pier 2021 which will take place on Sunday 16 May 2021. Any entrants who wish to withdraw their entry can receive a Full Refund of all fees paid, details of how this can be arranged will be emailed to all entrants. We will also, as usual, accept entry transfers for the 2021 event until 12 Noon on Saturday 15 May 2021.  We'll open sales of the remaining places in late Autumn.

As we're sure you will understand this news comes as a bitter blow to all of the organising team who have already put in a tremendous amount of work in their own time in preparation for this years event. Sadly we are going through exceptional times; however, we are looking forward already to welcoming you to the North East Coast in 2021.
