Still the right decision, just driven the course. Non gritted roads covered in compacted snow/ice and slush. Finish cul-de-sac has slush and snow in the school entrance.
Does anyone know what happens to the race fees if nbot rescheduled i.e. refunds or not?
They don't usually give refunds Antony .
When Wrexham was cancelled a couple of years ago they offered a refund if you returned your number etc, or the opportunity to donate your fee to a local charity. But I don't think there was the same cost involved, it is run round an Industrial estate rather than through a busy town/village across an A road
Given that no-one actually profits from an old-fashioned club organised race like this, I'm quite happy to forfeit the fee as I know the surplus is distributed locally.
They can keep my entry fee also, just one of those things that happens once in a while!! Don't fancy seeing a small running club in financial difficulty due to paying for road closures, race numbers, chip timing etc and then giving refunds.
Can anyone suggest any other HM's in the area? I did Liverpool last year and would rather find a different one.
Wilmslow is usually same day as Liverpool, they're a bit snooty over there.
Sorry Mr Puffy, but the runners at Wilmslow aren't snooty - I've done it for the last three years and everyone has been brilliant, marshalls included. I know the organisers upset some people a few years ago by suggesting that there should be a maximum time limit (not very welcoming for new runners) but I've never seen that applied. Anyway Wilmslow's full! There'a the new Warwick Castle half around the same time if you don't mind travelling Muffin. Guaranteed nice scenery around there!
Thanks for the event advice. Wrexham is close by although timing over my 40th birthday weekend will be a challenge.
Food for thought
Must be some Helsby Half 2013 tech shirts going on the cheap?
does anybody think the race will be rerun???????????
The email said unlikely due to Police commitments etc
