Wanstead Flats Fire

I'm sure you'll all have seen the news about the grassland fire on Wanstead Flats. Our thanks, of course, to the London Fire Brigade who have been working tirelessly since Sunday to put out the fire and make the site safe.

We've seen reports that the number of firefighters on the scene is now 5 - down from 225 on Sunday. The fire did not affect our course directly. It was east of Lake House Road, and our course is to the west. I ran round an hour ago, and all is well.

We are therefore confident that the run will go ahead on Saturday,
but do keep an eye on our Facebook, or here, just in case.
