It is with great reluctance that we have taken the decision to cancel tomorrow’s Chrome Hill and Dove Head Event.
The prolonged and very heavy rain of the last week has made one of the parking fields totally inaccessible, and whilst we have tried to make alternative, last minute parking arrangements, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to accommodate all of the cars on the one remaining field, which is on an uphill slope and also wet.
We apologise for the late notification of this cancellation. We have tried hard to make the event happen and the good forecast for tomorrow makes the decision even harder.
Despite getting soaking wet we had a good day out checking the course yesterday. An area of contrasting geology. Gritstone in the west and limestone in the east. The western area has many small river valleys and a complex network of footpaths. The eastern area is predominantly limestone and includes the impressive Chrome Hill, formed from ancient coral reefs. The event centre is based at Dowall Hall Farm and has fantastic views of the surrounding hills.
We are hoping to publish the summer series results in the next few days.
