E-mail received to say that the marathon has been postponed - again!

Given the options on the e-mail, I am going to transfer my entry (free) to the Chelmsford Marathon as I was planning to do my entry for Chelmsford this weekend.

It's a shame they couldn't get agreement on road closures with the council. Good news for me is that my expected DNS has magically turned into a free transfer to Chelmsford mara later in the year. Hopefully I'll be fit by then.

Best wishes to the Sarfend organisers, I hope they do eventually get the event off the ground.

Just noticed this flash up on Related Threads. I presume that this one is as dead as a dodo having heard nothing more since the 2017 cancellation.
