Not the Roman IX – NTRIX
It is with much regret that the SAC Committee have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2019 running of the NTRIX.
We have been indebted to the NFU Mutual for the use of their facilities over the past 10 plus years which have been fundamental to the success of this race. However, they have made the decision to withdraw these facilities and despite our representations we have been forced to look elsewhere for the necessary infrastructure support to enable the race to continue.
We are thankful to those organisations who have offered to help but ultimately we have a situation where we cannot provide a race route / start / finish that would be safe, avoid significant inconvenience to the local residents and continue to provide a positive runner experience.
In these circumstances we have no alternative but to cancel the 2019 event.
We are hopeful that we may be able to address the o/s issues so that the race may be resurrected in 2020 – but we will also use the interim period to completely review the we host as it may be that a completely new event to replace the NTRIX is more appropriate.
