March 2020

Hello Cosmics

As there are events being cancelled everywhere due to this Coronavirus I am updating the Cosmics Facebook page as and when I hear about them but at this present moment as far as I am aware both the Krunce races and Clachnaben hill race are due to go ahead as planned. Cosmics training at Kings on Tuesday night and next Saturdays Clachnaben race preview run are also still going ahead.

As yet i have seen no information regarding parkruns and cancellations seem so far to have been up to the individual race organiser.

I would advise checking the race websites and facebook pages for yourselves though if you have a race planned, some events are getting canned at very short notice. I will do the best I can to update the Cosmics FB page when i hear of an event being cancelled or a substitute race or run being planned in its place but I dont have a crystal ball and occasionally my employer expects me to do some work (most unreasonable)

Suffice to say if you have any big event planned in the next 8 weeks theres a good chance its off.

The following races are still on too (as far as i know at the time of writing)

28th March -Cioch Mhor - the 1st Counter in the SHR champs -https://www.scottishhillracing.co.uk/RaceDetails.aspx?RaceID=RA-0052
Adrian Davis's races at Birnam forest also seem to be still on the weekend of the 11th April.
