Parking opposite Norton Middle School courtesy of Norton Strawberry Growers (sat nav: DN6 9DG), weather permitting. Do not park on West End Road as this forms part of the course.
Also, the start has changed to the main road from the side street so we will be congregating runners in the park and walking down just ahead of the race. Please follow the marshal’s instructions.
*** Now the weather ***
We like everyone are watching the upcoming forecast, as it stands we haven’t cancelled the race but we are mindful of many factors that could lead to that outcome. The primary problem with the course is some areas are ungritted and with the temperature not forecast to rise above 4C (even 1C) existing ice is unlikely to go. We also have to consider the medical provider (St Johns) /must/ be in attendance otherwise we are in violation of licensing and insurance.
We will email everybody ahead of the weekend what the situation is.
Should we cancel (and that has not happened yet) we would look to reschedule the race but we’d have to work with the local UKA to make sure we don’t clash with other local races.
