Bournemouth Race for Life 10k event cancelled
9:00am Sunday 17th June 2012 in News
THE 10k Race for Life event on Bournemouth seafront on Sunday afternoon has been cancelled due to the weather.
Organisers made the late decision after discovering sections of the 10k route along the promenade were covered in deep sand.
The 11am and 2.30pm 5k races will still take place and all 10k participants will have the option to take part in the 5k race instead.
They have also been given the option to run the Southampton Race 10k next month.
Organiser Rachel White said: "The course for the 10k section has been very badly affected overnight and today by the high winds and is covered in deep sand in many areas."
