Running and fitness club based at Sportcity, Manchester
Belle Vue Racers regret to announce that we have taken the sad decision to cancel the running of this year's Eddie Cheetham Memorial in Debdale Park that was due to be held on Sunday 6th July 2014.
This decision has been taken after careful consideration and discussion by our Race Committee based on the following factors:
The race was due to be held on the same weekend that the Tour de France passes close by and we have become increasingly aware that this is of unique interest to many runners who are also keen cyclists or supporters of this event.
There have been very few entries received to date. We believe several factors could be the reason for this including the increasing popularity of free park runs (of which there are several in our area) and the fact the our race is no longer part of the Five Races Grand Prix series (this was cancelled at short notice despite the efforts of several clubs including ourselves who wanted the series to continue).
Please note that our increasingly popular Hit The Trail race will definitely go ahead in January 2015.
