Chelmsford Marathon Update
Rain. Course Changes. A British affair….
Basically its wet. Going to stay wet. Maybe get wetter….than an otters pocket. A recent update was sent and it read that some parts of the course are waterlogged, and they have changed the course for “harder ground”. Still measure correctly according to their email broadcast.
Due to the severe weather conditions in the past couple of days and parts of the course becoming flooded it has been determined that, in the best interest of runners, the route will be slightly altered.
Two miles of grass surface running in Hylands Park has been removed and the equal distance has been added in Central and Admiral’s Park areas, all on hard standing. The course is still officially measured and accurate for a multi-terrain Marathon.
Although the weather is looking good for the event day, your safety is our main priority and therefore changing the route was the best option.”
Maybe they are beginning to realise the error of their ways having a multi-terrain marathon in the middle of October
