Yorkshire Head CANCELLED.

Yorkshire Head, 29 Feb, 2019.

It is with regret that the Organising Committee of the Yorkshire Head of the River 2020 announces the CANCELLATION of the event.

The River Ouse has been very high for the last two weeks, it remains above the 4 metres level and there is no prospect of it falling sufficiently by Saturday for the event to be run safely.

All entry fees will be refunded in full via BROE.

The Organising Committee thanks all entrants for their interest and support, and looks forward to welcoming everyone to York for the next Yorkshire Head of the River Race.
