Due to the adverse weather and specifically the poor underfoot conditions the Nigel Barge 10k Memorial Road Race (and associated 3k Junior Race) will not go ahead as advertised on Saturday - January 8. Both events have been postponed, and will instead take place on Saturday, March 5, 2011 with the venue still Garscube Sports Complex.
Race organisers told scottishrunningguide.com:
"Please accept our apology but after consultation with the estate we have taken the decision to postpone the race for the following reasons:
- the sheet ice conditions of this morning (Wednesday, January 5)
- the Sports Complex shortage of salt/grit
- the advance forecast for the next 3 days
- and because we wanted to give people as much notice as possible.
"Those who have pre-entered can retain their place for the new date, secure a place in the 2012 race, or alternatively contact Kenny Stevenson for a full refund (firstname.lastname@example.org). Sorry again for any inconvenience caused."
