It is with regret that after monitoring the weather forecast for tomorrow, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the North Lincolnshire Schools Primary Cross Country Championships.
Due to the anticipated torrential rain forecast, we have considered the impact this would have on the welfare of the children, staff, leaders, marshalls and volunteers, the inability for 550 children to shelter from the rain, condition of the course/underfoot (the secondary schools with nearly 1200 students will have ran on the course in the morning) which has all informed our decision.
These Championships will be rearranged in 2019 to ensure children still have the opportunity to run and I will be in touch as soon as possible once a new date is confirmed with rearranged facility bookings, volunteers, first aid and staffing.
I am very sorry for the decision that has to be made, but I hope you understand the reasons behind this. Hopefully this will give you time to inform parents and cancel travel arrangements.
We will also be phoning your school, posting on our twitter and website this morning.
