It is with regret that after careful consideration the North Norfolk Beach Runners have to announce that the 2020 Boxing Day Dip has been cancelled; this will be the first time in over 30 years that the event will not be held.
People’s safety is paramount and whilst we may have been able to create a covid secure environment on the beach for the dippers, we could not do the same for the thousands of onlookers that give so generously to our charities each year. Therefore we feel it is the right thing to do.
We have been eternally grateful to all those that have taken part in previous years, and especially St John Ambulance, the Coastguards and the RNLI who have kept us all safe. At least they can enjoy a lie in on Boxing Day this year.
All being well, we will return for 2021 and make it yet another record event. In the meantime, we would ask that everyone respects this decision and not put others at risk by dipping on the day. Please stay safe.
