COVID-19 Update and the Good News
As with all events entailing large gatherings, the normal Tata Steel Richard Burton 10k and the Runtech Kevin Webber Mini Miler Events, due to take place on 1st November 2020, will not be allowed to take place.
However, these well established runs will now take place as virtual events. We have been busy working on these events and are pleased to announce that as from 5/10/20 these are now open for registration on the Fullonsport site.
We are sure you will agree that primarily we address the safety of all our participants, supporters and volunteers. As virtual events, following all government guidelines, we now feel this primary aim can be met while still delivering this iconic event during these uncertain times.
We still have our main sponsors, Tata Steel and Runtech, Standing by us, alongside all our other sponsors.
By delivering these virtual events, the runners wishing to support these events now and into the future can now do so and we can all still raise money for people in need and for worthy organisations within our community. We will not cease to help the community with worthy causes.
We very much hope to be back with a full traditional race event next year on our normal first Sunday in November which will be 7th November 2021.
Yours in sport.

We are so very proud to continue our support of this iconic race. The events of 2020 have demonstrated how much we all need our community and support systems around us. The Tata Steel Richard Burton road race and Kevin Webber Mini-Miler has always pledged its support to community groups, grassroots charities and sports clubs in the Neath and Port Talbot region, and while the race might not look the same as before, the continuation of the virtual event, demonstrates that the committee are as special as the race namesake. Richard Burton was a trailblazer, and staunch advocate for his town, and the commitment from the race organisers that this year's event goes ahead is just what he would have wanted, we think.
All the profit raised by your virtual entry will go back to support those local organisations so badly hit by the Covid-19 pandemic. They have never needed your support more. Tata Steel are proud to support and look forward to seeing you all on the virtual finish line. Good luck! - Nia Singleton, Community Liaison Manager UK, Tata Steel
