In the Northern Running Guide E-news of December 9 we told runners that the Longridge Xmas Pudding 7 was off. This is an error, the race is definitely on.
Race organiser Steve Ashcroft has contacted NORTHERN RUNNING GUIDE to say: "Conditions are excellent here in Preston, there's no snow and the roads are clear. The weather forecast for race day - Sunday, December 12 is excellent and we fully expect the event to go ahead in good running conditions. Entries can be made online. You can also enter on the day. The race starts at 11am at the Civic Hall, Longridge, Preston."
Apologies to all our readers and to the race organisers for this mistake.
