Runners braving the snow and bitter winds in the Grizzly earlier this year

Earlier this year the Grizzly, which starts and finishes in the seaside town of Seaton, was officially ‘cancelled’ due to the heavy snow and whiteout conditions on the day although several hundred runners, many of whom were in East Devon for the weekend, opted to run the course at their own discretion and liability.

The same bad weather spell also forced the organisers of the Bath half to cancel the event for the first time.
