So awesome: Big half marathon in UK (Sheffield Half Marathon) cancelled as race organizers had no water - runners run anyway
Must have coincided with the one day a year the Brits brush their teeth
It appears the race was suppose to start at 9am and then pushed back to 9:30am due to technical issues. Then at 9:45ish it was cancelled due to insufficient amounts of water is available on the course.
Here are a couple os stories on the whole thing.
It's awesome the runners ran anyway.
I changed the title of this thread.
Thousands ran anyway. The police gave up trying to stop them.
Of the police attempt to set up road blocks, he said: "It sounds like they turned it into a bit of a steeplechase."
