Santa Dash on 4th December 2010 postponed due to bad weather

The Santa Dash scheduled for Saturday 4th December in London’s Battersea Park has been postponed due to bad weather. The run will instead take place the following Saturday, 11th December at the same start time of 10am. The ground in the park has frozen, so the wise decision has been made to avoid putting runners at risk of injury.Sarah Bennett, Fundraising & Events Manager for the charity Disability Snowsport UK, has sent us this statement: ‘We are in touch with the Met Office regarding the weather conditions the night before and early in the morning of Saturday 4th December. The forecast is for a low of -7C overnight and possible light rain or sleet in the morning. Fresh snow would not be a problem to run on but the combination of a deep frost with light rain falling could possibly provide black ice in the morning, making it unsafe to run. Battersea Park is kindly letting us restage the run on Saturday 11th December.’SantasSanta breeds a new race of supreme beings...If you are planning to take part, keep your race number to use on the new day. Timings and all other instructions remain the same, so refer to your joining instructions already sent to you. The charity adds: ‘As this is a charity event and the charity has already met the expenses of hiring the venue, purchasing Santa suits and medals, unfortunately, we are unable to offer a refund of your entry fee if you are now unable to make the revised date. We apologise for the inconvenience caused, however the wellbeing and safety of all runners is our main priority. Thank you for your understanding and patience with this matter.’For more information, visit www.santadash.co.uk
