What angers me most about this is the blatant cynicism of the organisers. They go and blithely ignore all local feeling, in the process cancelling existing, popular events. Like many other local runners in the Cardiff area I've no intention of taking part. However this isn't about being "negative", it's about making a point and taking a stand against such greedy, big-business-like, bullying tactics. The organisers have to be made aware of how much bad feeling they've created by barging in like this, and a boycott is the only effective means of doing that available to local runners. Meanwhile, I'll look forward to the Brecon 10-miler and the Merthyr Police 10k - both of which will be far better fun!
