The temperture has dropped below zero and snow is begining to lie, in light of this, together with a poor local weather forecast for tomorrow morning and the advice from UKA we have decided to postpone the event.
First time in over 25 years we have had to take this action.
It was a race not a run!
Adverse Weather - UKA Advice to Endurance Events for the Weekend of the 17th -18th March 2018
The Met Office has issued yellow and amber (potential threat to life) weather warnings for much of the UK this weekend.
The real feel temperature is due to drop in many areas into single or double minus figures, with predicted strong wind speeds and to varying degrees, snow is also likely to fall.
Events that are due to take place should give serious consideration to the impact that the weather will place on the welfare of the runners, and any staff, volunteers, stewards etc. involved.
Consideration should also be given to the potential issues with transport systems, (including the ability to transfer injured or unwell participants, spectators etc. by ambulance) and the natural impact cold weather has on the workload of any receiving hospitals.
For events affected by these weather warnings we strongly suggest cancellation or postponement of your event for the benefit of everyone involved

National Cross Country Championships 2018
Report by Clive Thornton
Snake Lane 10 - 25/02/18
Another great day at the popular Snake Lane 10 mile race. Nobody got anywhere near Ricky Stevensons long time course record but Andy Pearson had a great run to pick up the 2nd v45 prize in 58:29. A head wind in the undulating final 2 1/2 miles made it a hard finish to the race impacting on times.
New Marske dominated the ladies prizes with Sharon Bulman collecting the 1st V40 prize, Trish Speedie 1st V45 prize and Kath Aspin the 1st V50 prize. Together they also reclaimed their trophy for 1st Ladies team that they lent out last year!.
