*Race cancelled as jogger hit by car on course*
Anyone know what would happen in the event of cancellation? Would they rearrange or refund?
If iit does go ahead, which considering lots of outside events have been cancelled, would be surprised ... the decision has to be made on an individual basis on how experienced we are running on ice and suitable trainers for the conditions - I have neither!
Well it's a race that's been going on for years, so they should know what they are doing.
Hope HOPE it's not cancelled.
Trail shoes, running on main roads, is fine in south Manc anyway....Try getting some Yaktrax Pro's to fit on your shoes...£8 ebay, with £6 postage....Stops you slipping on ice.
Just seen this on the Helsby running club website.
(A pity but the only sensible thing to do)
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!

The race is officially off, I drove the course this morning and it was the right decision. Be safe out there folks!
What a shame - right decision though.
Nathalie ... As my wife works at H.O.G.S , would like to point you in the direction of Village Bakery Half on 17th Feb . in Wrexham . Would be good preparation for London .
Same here gutted but relieved at same time. Snow is starting up again here.
Ok Nat , see you at the pier head in March , weather permitting
