Title: Ashford & District 10K cancelled
Post by: Steve King on February 04, 2012, 11:10:33 PM
I was wavering about whether or not to run the Ashford & District 10K race tomorrow, but the race director, Martin Burke of Nice-Work, has kindly made the decision for me! ;-)  ---  THE  RACE  HAS  BEEN  CANCELLED ---

A 2KM section of the course was icy at 16:00 this afternoon, with no prospect of it thawing out.  The snow forecast overnight has brought about a very sensible decision on the part of the organisers.  There are plans to reschedule the race, subject to finding a suitable date for the race HQ to host it and obtaining the necessary local authority permissions.

Thanks for sharing that, Steve - hope no-one tried to make the trip over first thing!

They've managed to reorganise this for 18th March - http://www.nice-work.org.uk/news.php (http://www.nice-work.org.uk/news.php). Not entirely sure about their point on why they can't offer refunds, but running clubs can. They incur costs too!

Dartford 10 mile is now confirmed as 25th March - http://dartfordroadrunners.co.uk/dartford10.html (http://dartfordroadrunners.co.uk/dartford10.html)

It does leave things rather tight for Deal to rearrange theirs, certainly within the next 2/3 months.....
