Road Run 2020 Cancelled, see below.


THE COTTENHAM YESTERYEAR ROAD RUN 2020
 
Dear Supporters,
 
We are very disappointed to have to announce the cancellation of the Cottenham Yesteryear Road Run yet again.
 
The last two Runs were cancelled because we lost our only viable route due to the A14 project and the Northstowe development. The A14 project has advanced to the point that we were confident that the 2020 Run could take place, but we have now been advised by Cambridgeshire County Council (Highways) that the way we currently organise the event doesn’t meet their requirements, which involve a lengthy application process that we cannot fulfil in time for our chosen date in April. Furthermore, we understand that our use of volunteer marshals is also unacceptable and that the alternative is to employ a Traffic Management Company costing several thousand pounds. We feel that it is not right for the public’s generosity to be used for this purpose rather than contribute to the very deserving cause – the Arthur Rank Hospice - that the event is designed to support.  We plan to meet as soon as possible with the County Council see if acceptable arrangements can be made for the future, but if not that’s the end of the Yesteryear Road Run as we know it. “
