Regrettably our birthday event this morning is cancelled due to numerous patches of ice
Due to large patches of ice we have to cancel today’s event (2nd Dec). This is for runner safety
Event today is cancelled due to ice. There is a large section of ice at the bottom of the hill by the top gate - this is unlikely to clear by 9am and as such will be unsafe to runners.
