Message from the Race Director:
Unfortunately due to yesterday’s weather and the weather forecast over the next few days we’ve had to make the decision to cancel Sunday’s Highclere Castle Challenge 10k race and fun run.
Without the infrastructure of toilets and a marquee we cannot run the race. We arrived on site this morning to find the toilets had blown over and severe winds which wouldn’t allow our contractors to build the marquee.
As you may know if you’ve run the route before, so much of the course is under tree cover and we just can’t predict whether it will be safe enough with the risk of falling trees, branches and other debris.
We are disappointed to have to cancel the race but you can rest assured it is for the best possible reasons.
When you entered via RunBritain it was clearly stated that there will be no refunds but if you would like to receive your long sleeved running top please let me know your size and we will post it out to you this week.
Small: 36-38 inch chest approx.
Medium: 38-40 inch chest approx.
Large: 41-42 inch chest approx.
XLarge: 43-44 inch chest approx.
We’d also like to send our thanks again to the Highclere Estate, CDK Global and the MS Society for their ongoing support.
