Although the weather forecast for this afternoon is finally down to only about 24% it only has to rain lightly and that would mean that the hurdles and jumps could not take place. After a week’s rain, the hurdles and jumps take offs are now very wet. In addition, we are running dangerously low on experienced staff and from a safety point of view we have had to take the decision that this afternoon’s District 3 athletics’ day two is therefore postponed.
This is our fifth cancellation in ten days. We now have to implement a radical solution as even Mr Hardiman does not remember a week like this!
District 2 (Day One, postponed from Tuesday 4th June 2019) and District 3 (Day Two, postponed from Wednesday 12th June 2019 and today) will now take place on Monday 1st July 2019 with a 4pm start.
District 4 (Days One and Two) will now take place on Friday 5th July 2019 with a 3.45pm start.
The City Athletics’ Championships will remain on Monday 8th July 2019 with a 4.15pm start.
