Press Report: Relays Off

WEST CHESHIRE ATHLETIC CLUB’S hopes of competing in two high profile fixtures have been ruled out because of Covid-19.

Northern Athletics has postponed the Spring Road Relays which were scheduled to be held next month, and the Welsh Castles Relay have been cancelled.

Northern Athletics said: “Following a meeting of our Board to review future competition we have reluctantly had to decide to postpone the Spring Road Relays in Redcar at the end of March. This is due in part to the situation nationally, but also because the local authority has indicated they are unable to sanction an event which would involve bringing many visitors into their area.

“We will continue to review other possibilities over the coming weeks.

“The provisional date for the Autumn Road Relays is September 18/19. It is however unlikely that we will be able to use our usual venue due to the ongoing Covid-19 testing/vaccination centre utilising part of the course at Sport City.”

News of the Welsh Castles Relay Race was announced on social media: “After much deliberation we feel we have no option but to cancel this year’s Welsh Castles Relay.”With things not looking like opening up much in the near future we cannot see how the event can go ahead. We hope you understand our decision.
“We are provisionally lining up WCR 2022 to be held on the weekend of June 11 and 12, but will keep you posted!”
