Sewerby parkrun has had to be cancelled this week due the adverse weather forecast.
While the runners/walkers all know their own abilities, talent and fitness levels and can make a reasoned decision to take part accordingly it is not fair to expect the volunteers to set the course up and freeze for another hour while the event takes place.
The toilets and cafe at Sewerby are open but the car park has been closed since Tuesday and this might represent another problem.
Hopefully better conditions will prevail by the time next week's event comes around and a decision will again be made by Friday morning.
This should in no way reflect on the cross country league race at Sewerby on Sunday as they will take their own decisions.
