The 2018 Grizzly is off! However, they are to run a modified CUB run covering a 10-mile route – the Grizzly is a 20-mile event.

The 2018 Grizzly is off! However, they are to run a modified CUB run covering a 10-mile route – the Grizzly is a 20-mile event.

The decision was taken by organisers after reviewing the weather forecast and having discussions with various agencies.

The organisers then issued a statement on Saturday morning that read: “After careful consideration of the current and forecasted adverse weather conditions and discussions with those providing our essential safety services we have taken the difficult decision that there will be NO full (20m) Grizzly run tomorrow. There will however be a modified (10m) CUB route tomorrow and all runners will be able to take part in the CUB route. This decision has not been taken lightly, but we have the safety and wellbeing of our runners, spectators and marshals as our prime consideration. If you have not yet travelled, please consider your local travel advice before travelling. Anyone who is in the entry list as at 11am this morning for the Grizzly and Cub this year will be entitled to a priority place prior to the ballot next year. If you have recently downgraded to the Cub from the full Grizzly you do not need to change your number. A further review of the overnight weather conditions will be made early tomorrow but we will only communicate again if we are unable to hold any event. We hope you will support us in this decision and still enjoy your run tomorrow.”
