Sadly victim to flooding
The organisers did all they could and an excellent job to keep runners updated -alert email on the Thursday afternoon with a promise of an update, which happened, the following day on Friday. A text alert re the cancellation was also sent on the Friday.
The organisers made it very clear what options runners were being given: transfer to the Cheshire 10k in March; transfer to other local runs; or a full refund.
Forms were attached for runners to inform the organisers of their wishes, with a request date by 15 November. All very clear.
It was sad that it couldn't take place but was the right and only decision that had to be taken. I have attended many run through events before and they have always been great events and well organised. I attended the spring Cheshire 10k this year and loved it. A PB course for me. I will look forward to running the Cheshire 10k in March.
Sad but out of everyone's control. I felt sorry for the organisers and couldnt fault them on their communication and decision.
Looking forward to spring! Until then I shall keep running and racing!
Not sure if this is a run review you wanted but thought I'd write it so you'd know how organisers handle it when it goes wrong.
