It is with regret that the 2015/2016 Boscombe Winter Series has had to be cancelled.

Sarah Swift took up the challenge of organising this years Winter Series and has worked very hard with Bournemouth Council to put the event on.

The Winter series has run for many years using the original course heading out from Boscombe Pier towards Hengistbury Head, turning round at Southbourne zig zag. Last year a stretch of lights along the prom stopped working and despite many requests to the local authority, no repairs were carried out.

We were encouraged at the end of February when they reported they would be fixed over the Summer, giving us hope to continue this year. However, after informing us they have been sorted they are still out.

Unfortunately, alternative routes are not suitable and risk assessments of running in the opposite towards Bournemouth have been found to be too dangerous. In the interests of safety we unfortunately have no option but to cancel the 2015/16 Winter Series.

We are so sorry to disappoint so many runners but the matter was taken out of our control. We will revisit again next year and hope to have better news.

We wish you all the very best in running.
