ALDI ASHBY 20 RACE CANCELLATION - UPDATES FOR ENTRANTS - SEE ASHBY 20 TAB FOR UPDATE
URGENT - ALDI ASHBY 20 SUNDAY 18TH MARCH - RACE CANCELLATION
It is with deep regret that the Aldi Ashby 20 Road Race due to be held on Sunday 18th March has been cancelled due to the forecast weather conditions.
The Met Office currently have a Yellow warning of snow and ice in place for the area between Friday 18.00 and Saturday 16.00, and a more severe Amber warning from Saturday 16.00 until 9.00 Sunday, followed by further Yellow warnings. In addition, the "feels like" temperature, taking into account strong winds, is forecast to be as low as -9 degrees Celsius.
The organisers have not taken the decision lightly, having consulted with the local authorities and emergency services and taken into account the best interests of competitors, supporters, helpers, emergency services and the local communities.
Furthermore, with many competitors travelling from all over the country for this popular race, and with over 260 volunteers required to be on the course for over 6 hours in most cases, it is the correct decision to make at this time to protect everyone's welfare.
A further announcement specificaly relating to impact on entrants will be made in due course, once the Race Committee have assessed their options.
Many thanks for your understanding and your support for this tough decision.
