A lack of entries has led to this coming weekend’s Mountains to Sea race to be cancelled.
An urgent meeting was held on Saturday night and the decision to cancel was made.
“Unfortunately we must cancel this year’s race due to not meeting our target number of participants, making the race unviable to run,” said Katarina Wade, event administrator from the Wanganui Events Trust. “The adventure/race events market is a very crowded space with many options available,” she said. “There are a number of other factors that have led to low registration numbers.” She said they will start work “to ensure we have robust event planning in place for next year’s race”.
