Twixmas Cancellation

Following the cancellation of the Twixmas 10k on the 31st December, due to adverse weather making parts of the course dangerous, we have come up with the following plan.

A full 10k run on the Twixmas course will be run on Sunday 18th February, start time 11am (RR3)

To accommodate those runners who had confirmed entries, and who had not previously withdrawn from the race due to injury, we will also be holding a number of smaller events, of 10k, run on the same Twixmas course. These smaller events however, will not be timed.

These ‘less formal’ 10k runs will take place on the following dates; Sunday 14th January (RR1), Sunday 28th January (RR2).

All the rescheduled events will be open for entries as new events.

All runners must wear a valid Race Number, which will be the race number they were allocated for the race that was cancelled.

ALL finishers in any of the rearranged events, will receive a finishers medal.

As you will appreciate, cancelling an event so close to the start is a massive decision and is not taken lightly.

I would also like to say that we have found some of the comments on social media a little upsetting. We tried our best, given the circumstances, to inform all those affected, as early as possible. We used text messaging, Facebook and local radio to get the message out there. We particularly chose Facebook as it is a very effective platform for disseminating information across wide networks of friends. In this case it served it’s purpose well, with only 5 people actually turning up at the venue, two of which admitted to not having checked their mobile phones! We would like to thank all of you that took the trouble to pass on the news about the cancellation.

Any entrants who wish to make a representation to us about the above, are asked to contact us by email (jeff@ruralrunningevents.com).
