Ian Roberts Fell Race (BM) 2018


Sunday March 18th 2018, 11am 

Announcement: March 17, 18:00

RACE POSTPONED: It's with a heavy heart (particularly after this afternoon's rugby), but I'm afraid I'm going to have to postpone the race tomorrow.

Unfortunately, the weather is exactly as forecast - the heavy snow has arrived in West Yorkshire and it’s set to stay like this for most of the night.

The safety of everyone involved (runners & marshals) has to be paramount & whilst the forecast for tomorrow is for the snow to ease, it is now set to snow for longer, it will be below freezing all day & with a severe wind-chill. It's likely that many roads in the area will be icy & would present some difficult driving conditions just getting to the cricket club.

Hopefully, we'll be able to rearrange the race for later in the year. Enjoy your lie-in!

Minimum age - 18 years old (on day of race)

Marsden Cricket Club (HD7 6NN) - from 09:30 am.

Race start is about 10 minutes walk from registration.

Given the weather in recent weeks, come prepared to carry kit suitable for winter conditions (i.e. full waterproof body cover). 

Please note:

We have been asked by the cricket club committee to remind all runners to try & keep the clubhouse as clean as possible. Please ensure that after the race you take off any muddy, wet shoes and do not clean your shoes or socks in the sinks in the toilets. Failure to respect the cricket club’s facilities may jeopardise future races.
