2020/2021 Season Cancelled
With regret, we have now decided to cancel the whole of the 2020/21 season.
This has been a very tough decision but after receiving the latest guidelines and joining an EA zoom meeting last night the league cannot comply with the regulations as we cannot provide a COVID secure environment.
Along with this we have now also lost Ally Pally as a XC fixture.
I am afraid that I have decided not to permit any cross country running events in the Park. Partly because of the negative impact that the races had on the grass areas last year, and secondly due to the challenges placed on us by staff reductions during the pandemic.
The Park is a historic, designed landscape and its general visitor numbers are increasing every year. The impact of the churned grass areas and mud on the paths has become too great and affects other people’s enjoyment.
We will have to wait and see what develops in 2021
Stay safe everyone Met League Admin
