Fox Rush 3km Time Trial - Event Cancelled - sent to entrants 26th Sept 10.20am

 

Hi

I regret to have to tell you, that I have decided to cancel the Fox Rush 3km Time Trial Series.

Since last Saturday we have taken just one entry and with current numbers we stand to lose £700 (First Aid, Toilets etc) which is too much of a risk for the club’s finances.

I am not sure if runner’s reluctance was due to the 5 race format, the venue or just nervousness of the COVID situation – and it is the latter point following Redcar & Cleveland being placed on the government’s watch list that has prompted me to take this action now.

Cancelling is not without cost as each entry has a processing fee - which is one reason why I opted for a single entry for 5 events. I have already purchased the bespoke medals so I will try again perhaps with just a one-off event next year.

So in the meantime please stay safe and do your bit to see off this horrible virus!

Regards
