A shame but sadly not unexpected given its public access

From LSMOC:-
Dear Mini Community,
"It is with great sadness, that for the first time in its 35 year history, we must cancel the London To Brighton Mini Run.
2020 was one of the most difficult years any of us will have ever faced and unfortunately, 2021 does not seem to be getting any easier. As a Committee we have worked tirelessly with local authorities to bring you the event you all love, but, no matter how hard we worked, we were unable to secure the required permits for the 2021 London To Brighton Mini Run to go ahead due to Covid-19 restrictions.
Throughout our work, our members and ticket holders safety had been and will always be our number one priority.
Due to the nature of our event, despite extensive talks and planning, we are unable to make this event "Covid Secure". The London To Brighton Mini Run is a huge event on the mini calendar. Each year, we find ourselves limited on space, new requirements would mean parking cars at least a meter apart, ensuring every participant wears a mask and sanitised regularly, limiting the numbers of participants and hardest of all, controlling the amount of people entering Crystal Palace and Madeira Drive. We do not have the authority to close these public spaces on our event days, both areas remain open to the public.
We understand this is incredibly disappointing, but your safety is paramount.
Thank you for your support and understanding."
Please visit www.london-to-brighton.co.uk for our full statement and refund information.
Nathan - LSMOC Chairman

Hopefully it'll be back next year bigger and better.

A difficult decision, but the right one
