*** KHORR - EVENT CANCELLED ***
Further to our earlier bulletin on river conditions, following consultation with the Environment Agency, the organisers of the Kingston HoRR have decided, with regret, to cancel the event. The EA is currently (Friday 11 March, midday) showing "red board" stream warnings on the Teddington Reach and have informed us that it is 99% certain that the same warning will be in place tomorrow for the time we plan to hold the event. With the safety of competitors as the prime concern, the event organisers' decision, therefore, is that the race must be cancelled.
This is the first time for many years that stream conditions have caused the cancellation of Kingston Head. We hope that this will not reoccur for several years and look forward to welcoming competitors back to Kingston for the Small Boats Head in November 2016. Further notices will be made concerning refunding of entry fees.
