forecasts less scary this morning....
I've just heard it is cancelled. That was from Cheshire AAA official so probably right.
I'm gutted! Bloody ice and snow.
19 JANUARY: With great regret, the race is cancelled. The course has been assessed by several experienced race organisers and is not safe to run. The police would not pass the route on their inspection tomorrow so we wanted to give people as much notice as we could. There are long stretches of compacted snow which will not shift in the next 24 hours. We've been working hard with shovels to clear the club area, but the real problem is out on the country lanes which are not clear. We really enjoy putting on the race and putting back into the community, but it's simply not safe for our runners. Please spread the word.
We'll try and get some pictures up later to show you the state of the course.
To everyone that has entered and supported us in this great race — SORRY!
We'll be in touch with more information when we have it. Thanks!
