****IMPORTANT – CANCELLATION**** 20th January 2018

****IMPORTANT - CANCELLATION****

An inspection of the course has been carried out this morning, using the parkrun safety scale, we have no choice but to make a 'number 2' safety announcement and CANCEL the event this week. Sorry, folks but safety is paramount. There are substantial areas of black ice.

Please keep an eye on other event's pages - some may be more fortunate. Hopefully you will be able to get to one. Really sorry to have to cancel.
