Upon a review of the course with the Cruden Farm Venue Manager the unfortunate decision has been made to cancel this weekend’s XCR’19 Round 8 at Cruden Farm in accordance with our Unfavourable Weather Policy (available here)
With the weather that crossed Victoria overnight, the course is no longer suitable for our event. We have been made aware that the start line paddock is currently underwater and trees have fallen within the venue and we will be unable to create a suitable and safe course.
Further, we have reviewed the upcoming forecast and it appears the worst of the rainfall and wind has yet to hit the area and for the safety of all athletes, officials and club helpers it is not viable to conduct the event safely.
We are currently reviewing the possibility of rescheduling at the same venue, there will be more information to follow.
We would ask Clubs and all AV members to respect and acknowledge that a decision like this is not taken lightly.
