Organisers dodge a bullet

The race should have been cancelled due to the weather imho. Weather forcast clearly gave dangerous conditions in that area(and rest of country) at time of race. They should have cancelled, refunded or deferred entry fee to next year. Only 69 people turned up and by an absolute miracle ran in a brief window of opportunity. The organisers clearly took a punt with runners safety in very dubious conditions.

So I picked my number up from a chippy. Followed a bloke with a bollard who said we will start here, not even a painted line. The actual race was ok but came up 1/2 km short so you couldn't even get a PB. The run was good but the race was a little disappointing. Prob wont be coming again.
