Dear all runners and walkers
Due to an adverse weather warning for the time the run scheduled for tomorrow morning we have made the difficult decision to cancel the event.
We apologize to all the runners and walkers, but feel the conditions will be miserable for both competitors and volunteers.
We will refund you your entry fee (less the credit card commission) please let us know if you would like to donate your entry fee to the Trails Trust.
We are considering running the event in January and will keep everyone posted via social media.
Our apologies for the inconvenience caused.
The Kepler Challenge has also re-routed the course due to the weather. We wish all the runners well tomorrow and hope everyone get home safe and sound.
