2017 Derwent River Relays – lack of pre-entries forces us to withdraw the event

Sad news folks but we as a committee hope you understand…

"2017 : It is with immense regret that we have had to cancel this year’s Derwent River Relays.

As a club we are aware that events like this help local runners, help local non running teams and generally get everyone together for another good reason to get the running gear on!

Sadly, pressing on with events at a potentially large loss is not an option for us and that’s what the current situation looks like. Limited pre-entries and a large imminent cash outlay mean that carrying on would incur too much financial risk for us to take on.

It goes to show how in this day and age where everything is online and very quick / easy to do that this works against us all ultimately. Perhaps many would enter in the final weeks leading up to the event, perhaps in the final days but this is too late for organisers.

I’ve seen many events having to be pulled by the organisers due to lack of pre-entries and this is another one sadly this year so do us all a favour for all these races and events – PRE ENTER EARLY TO HELP THE ORGANISERS COMMIT!
