Abbotstown Race Cancellation
Sport Ireland Campus has acknowledged that our BHAA cross-country
race on Saturday 12th October 2019 should not have been cancelled.
They offered to re-instate the event on Wednesday afternoon but it was
too late for BHAA. It was a genuine offer to rectify the situation.
Negative comments on Social Media are not helpful at this time and
please refrain from making same.
BHAA and Sport Ireland will work to ensure that this situation will
not arise in future. We look forward to a productive relationship.
Unfortunately Sport Ireland Campus has pulled the plug on our race on Saturday citing,
“As of yet, we have not confirmed your booking and unfortunately, it is unlikely to go ahead for 12/10/19 as there won’t be anyone rostered in to create an event management plan and the weather conditions may affect a race that was booked in a few months ago for the 20/10/19”.
This is terribly disappointing and frustrating for all in BHAA.
We hope to celebrate our 40th anniversary with our Irish Life race at Santry Demesne on 16th November. I really appreciate your efforts to support the BHAA and hope to see you out racing with us soon.
Pre-registered runners will have their race entries refunded this week.
Yours in Sport
