THE Alderman’s Ascent fell run due to be hosted by Saddleworth Rangers on Saturday, May 16 has been cancelled.
The annual race, which started five years ago, had been chosen to be part of the English Fellrunning Championships for the first time.
However, because of the Covid-19 outbreak this year's championships has been cancelled, with all races to be rescheduled for 2021.
To date 300 hundred runners had registered/paid to take part. The ticket company will honour refunds and deal with all requests.
Dependant on guidance, the fell run in its original format could still go ahead later in the year, raising valuable funds for Rangers tour group and celebrate the club.
