The City Centre Athletics Event due to take place in Lichfield on Sunday August 28th has unfortunately had to be cancelled.

Kevin Wilson of organisers KP Events explains the reasons behind the decision:

It was always going to be difficult to stage this first event of its kind in the city at a time of year when other events were taking place and so many people were on holiday, so we were finding it difficult to stage, also personal circumstances were a key factor in making the decision to cancel, hopefully in 2012 we’ll be able to find a suitable slot to launch the event again.
