It’s not scaremongering. It just might be. Could we live without the 3 Peaks cyclocross?
As you probably know, John Rawnsley’s event organisation for every 3 Peaks Cyclocross since 1961 has been well documented as being something very special. John was brought into the British Cycling Hall of Fame – one of the 50 honoured by British Cycling last year. It is an immense task. Has John’s huge success as an organiser made the race unsustainable?
Although there is a plan for legacy, it is a daunting task. John will stay on in an advisory capacity but getting willing volunteers is a tough task. Keith Parkinson (the official website administrator – and a long time fanatic of the race) is helping co-ordinate the tasks and ‘administer’ jobs.
So the race you love is hereby asking how you can help – can you volunteer to keep this race alive into 2012 and beyond?
Please contact Keith Parkinson – firstname.lastname@example.org in the first instance.
