Icy conditions presented themselves to the Helsby Green that showed up near Hoylake on Sunday morning. Due to this, race organisers decided to wait for the low sun to warm the race route but even after three fifteen-minute delays icy patches still prevailed.
It was then decided that the race would be run but only as a non-scoring race. Some runners on a tight schedule had to leave and others decided not to risk slipping on the icy conditions.
The race start was moved to begin away from the worst of the ice but there were still slippy areas throughout. The race was a shortened 4.9miles according to the results available via the link below
Over two hundred did eventually ‘race’ and results attached for information only.
