Regrettably we have taken the decision to cancel Sunday’s XC at Bosworth Battlefield.
Whilst the course is just about runnable, the field we use to park the majority of the cars in is saturated – with more rain forecast later in the week and the fact that it is on an incline mean that we cannot safely park cars on there.
In addition, both roads to the Battlefield Centre are flooded – just outside Sutton Cheney fully to a depth that smaller cars can only just get through – this has been the case for several days now, and also extensively around the railway bridge near Sutton Cheney Station.
The organisers have discussed extensively and we feel that we have no option but to cancel for safety reasons.
We have looked at potentially rescheduling, however with Bagworth Heath now being held on 22nd March there are no race free weekends before Easter (Kibworth 6 – 8th March, Ashby 20 – 15th March, Bagworth Heath- 22nd March, Desford 5 – 29th March, 5th April – Hose Half Marathon).
We are obviously gutted to have to cancel as not only have the team put in a lot of work in planning/course clearing, we are also aware of how popular the race is. 😢
We will be back next year….🤞🤞
