🚨 Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Update: 15 Jun 2020
Sadly, and with our hearts heavier than a 35lb bergen, we have to cancel PARAS’10 Catterick. You may have seen this morning that the Great North Run cancelled its event to be held a week after ours. All discussions with the Army and local authorities tell us that 5 Sept is just not feasible under COVID. The choice is no longer ours.
All entrants will get a free transfer to another event, this year or next. We are actively investigating a Virtual PARAS’10 on 5 Sept for those keen to get the miles done. Keep up your training, as it will be good for your physical and mental health. More news when we have it.
We are also looking at what extra we can do to ensure that Colchester happens on 7 Nov, including possibly moving the course – a new challenge for you.
Please stand by us and we will stand by you, and keep PARAS’10 going for you, somehow, some way.

Update: 05 Jun 2020
Today 5 June is 3 months out from Catterick 5 Sept. It’s fair to give you an update so you can decide your own plans. You all know what’s going on in the world. There is still much uncertainty around Mass race events – we are watching like hawks.
We have sent this letter out to all those have entered Catterick, but this is for all of you in our PARAS’10 community. If you were thinking of entering Catterick, hold off for more certainty- there will be plenty of time to enter when we know for sure. Next update will be 15 June.
Update: 18 Mar 2020
Colchester event postponed until Sat 07 Nov 2020
Sadly we must bow to the inevitable – last straw was withdrawal of Emergency Services to events and we cannot risk your safety. But this will not beat us. With kind consent of CO 3 PARA (from Kenya) we WILL have a PARAS’10 Colchester on Sat 07 Nov 2020. This will be Remembrance weekend so very emotional and appropriate for what we do as a charity.
