You're right, this will be a disaster for many athletes. In fact, we just spoke to the organisers on the phone, who told us that nearly half of entrants come from the local area.

Has anyone recieved there money back? I asked for my entry fee back straight away and had no resonse. It is not really the money but more the point of it. I really dont under stand why the company folded after the rumer of the councils dicision. I have read in 220 mag that the council have no record of a application for road closures for the event. Why could they not refund all of the entry fees and where has all the entry money gone.?? If i didnt know better it looks like a scam to rob competitor of there hard earned money.Does anyone know where Mark Davis of Bravevents lives as I will pop in and see if he has a new car on the drive
