Message from Simon Rippon RO -
Urgent Attention: Grin and Bear It Fell Race Oct 27th - with regret I'm having to cancel this year’s race. I've been advised a few hours ago by a private landowner that a section of the race that crosses his land is heavily waterlogged and given it has SSSI in places heavy foot fall will be damaging to the area.
I've looked at a re route from that area but this poses alot of risk to runners as it means crossing the Woodhead Pass in 2 places.
Please share this notice with those you know would be racing.
We go again in 2020!
