    Carding Mill Canter 2018

    from the RO

    POSTPONEMENT OF CARDING MILL CANTER

    I have regrettably reached the decision to postpone the Carding Mill Canter.
    I have wrestled at length over this but have taken the decision on the basis of advice Ive received,
    and on a number of factors which Ill summarise below;


    The weather forecast says we are still due another 10 hours plus of heavy snow between now and the race.
    The parking areas (both school and CMV) are inaccessible.
    The course is already impassable in places.
    There have been 'wise' public comments from respected sources on previous social media posts about exercising caution.
    The NT are closing all facilities in the Valley today and tomorrow.
    The NT have expressed a desire that we exercise caution (and not run the race).


    And most importantly,
    I have a duty of care to all runners and marshals.



    WE WILL RESCHEDULE FOR LATER IN THE YEAR.
    SORRY AGAIN TO HAVE TO TAKE THIS DECISION.
    ....it's all downhill from here.

    Is a shame for everyone looking forward to it, and for the organisers. (although for me it's a blessing as i'll hopefully be able to run in the re-scheduled race). But completely understandable.

    I'm hoping a similar fate does not befall the Edale Skyline next weekend...
