Seems it off for tomorrow's running. Weather and the government forcing the hand of the organisers. A big group from a local club are across for it, but have already 'taken to the bar' to drown their sorrows :P

All the Club La Santa folk will be disappointed - Jules, LouLou, Stoosh, dunno who else is out there. Sad.

That's disappointing. Isn't Lanzarote somewhere you go to get away from weather?

That's bad news - one of my club mates was signed up for this race. The following was on the Lanzarote forum on Trip Advisor today:

Flights to Lanzarote have been diverted to Fuerteventura over the past few hours.
There is an Orange Alert in place in Tenerife and northern Gran Canaria as winds of up to 120 kph are expected.
A couple of showers in Caleta today, and a strong, blustery wind. I imagine it will get worse.

old grey racer
We were there, Airport shut for 2 days due to high winds and torrential rain, sandbags in front of all the shops. The race was cancelled due to their being a red weather alert. All schools were closed over the island the day before and the Marathon Village tents got blown away. Great shame as it was the 25th Anniversary of the race this year.

That's a shame. I did this race years ago and it's a great event.

Got something to say?
