As I write this I imagine that many of our readers will have run, or know people who ran, the London Marathon on Sunday and be basking in the afterglow of their achievement. However, the weekend before, the Sheffield half marathon was in the news for all the wrong reasons. It was cancelled because water for the water stations around the course had not arrived, and the organisers cancelled the event as it had to provide a set number of water stations under British Athletics rules. The cancellation happened right at the last-minute, when runners were lined up ready to go. Many did not hear the announcements and ran anyway, and received a time and medal. Others did not run, wasting weeks of training. Many were very annoyed and expected an explanation and refund from the organisers.
It is unclear what happened. The water company said that its terms made clear that it had to be paid in advance. The organisers of the event reportedly said that they would not provide refunds to entrants. Their website now states that they will investigate what happened as there are a number of issues to consider.
