Statement by Gibraltar Athletics Council

Re: Decision to Change Date of 5th Race
2018/19 Edition of Capital.Com Road Racing League

The Gibraltar Athletics Council is aware that the recent decision to change the date for the 5th race of the Capital.com Road Runners League has proved controversial and would, therefore, like to clarify matters with this statement. The reason this statement has not been forthcoming sooner, is that our President, Mr Frank Carreras, has been away from Gibraltar and only returned on Tuesday evening. The issue merited a full discussion at Council level and Wednesday evening was, therefore, the soonest date this could be scheduled. 

We would like to make it very clear that this decision was not taken in order to benefit any team or individual participating in the Road Runners League. It came about as a result of a request from a number of athletes from the Hercules Triathlon Club who wanted to participate in the Seville half-marathon and didn’t want to miss our league race. We were assured, at the time, that the change of date was broadly acceptable to athletes and, in a spirit of cooperation, and with a view to further promoting our sport, the change was agreed. Indeed, our Vice-President consulted with leading runners from all teams before last Sunday’s race and none raised any objection to the proposed change. 

It is clear, with hindsight, and judging from the reaction from a number of athletes from different teams, that we were wrong to take the assurances received at face value. Whilst some athletes have no issue with the change of dates, a significant number of others do.  

In light of the above and in the interests of fairness, we would, therefore, like to announce that we have rescinded the decision to change the date of the 5th race and reverted to the 27 January as originally published.
