 MVM 2021 CANCELLED

Wednesday 24th March 2021

Hello CP Runners,

Hope you are all well. 
 
As you are all aware we had to postpone our Moss Valley Madness 10k run last year and set the date for 19th September 2021.
 
Unfortunately, after speaking to the land owners about the run I was informed of a virulent tree disease, Ramorum, that is affecting two of the areas the run would go through. The disease is likened to the tree equivalent of foot and mouth disease we experienced years ago and is spread on the shoes, cycle wheels etc of people who go through these areas. All of this means that we do not have the permission of one of the land owners to stage our race. 
 
Paul, Lucie and I have had a Zoom meeting about this and we have all come to the conclusion that as a club, we cannot stage a race that would potentially spread the disease throughout the woods, knowing that the only treatment for this is to fell the affected trees. 
 
We would however like club runners to save the September 19th date because we are going to put on our own club run. The run will include 3 different distances so all runners will be able to take part. We will also provide refreshments after the run. Details about where we will meet for the run will be provided nearer the time. 
 
Looking forward to seeing you all on Wednesday 31st March.
Take care, stay safe,
Bridget.
