Traviss told me that the feedback on the last couple of races had been fairly poor but that the RD hadn’t made any significant changes with the structure of his races.
Organising one race and getting it wrong is poor, but forgivable. Continueing to organise races and send runners out unsafe and without the support they are expecting is a whole different level of bad.
Pink Cow, not definately cancelled as the organiser hasn't said anything. But with no contact at all from them and the website down, people are assuming the worst. There's a longer thread on the ultra forum.
