Cancellation of Rainbow Fun Triathlon 2017

The weather forecast for the weekend has got a lot worse over the past 24 hours – there is now a firm forecast of southerlies and heavy rain for both Saturday 11 March and Sunday 12 March mornings.

For that reason we’ve decided that it’s best for us to cancel the Rainbow Fun Triathlon for this year – basically on the grounds that it wouldn’t be any fun!

But we’ll try again next Pride Festival.

No Sunday runs for two weeks

Because both Christmas Day and New Years Day fall on Sundays and everyone has other plans, we will have our next Sunday run on 8 January 2017.

There will be a Thursday run in the evening of 22 December, and 29 December.

Happy holidays everyone and a big thank you to everyone who has run with us this year!
