It is with great regret that we must inform you that the Great Daffodil Run March 4 2007 at Kelmarsh Hall, Northamptonshire must be postponed.
This has not been an easy decision and we have been in regular discussion with Kelmarsh Estate over the past couple of days. As a consequence of the constant wet weather a site inspection was held today at the Hall with the Estate Manager. Unfortunately the main event field, car parks and the start and finish areas are completely water logged. With further predictions from the Met office for ongoing rain for the rest of the week, this will not give the site enough time to drain. With health and safety for all in mind, Kelmarsh Estate and Marie Curie Cancer Care have had to make the difficult decision of postponing the event until 20th May 2007. We have been aware of several other events in the area being cancelled or postponed due to wet weather, one of them being Banbury Point to Point and the local golf course is at the moment closed due to water logged course.
We were hoping to raise £125,000 from the Great Daffodil Run 2007 to fund the local Marie Curie Nursing Service and the postponement is not a decision we have taken lightly.
Obviously we understand that this will come as a great disappointment to you and hope that you will be able to join us on the new date. If you have any queries regarding the postponement of the event please call us (details below).
Following this announcement the events team will be writing to all runners to inform them of the next steps.
