Should run have been cancelled?

I am so surprised that on Saturday January 3, in the pouring rain and the Bexhill downs already being like a mud pool, that they allowed a run to go ahead. This has resulted in more mud than ever being spread everywhere, it is now impossible to walk over there. Surely the race could have been cancelled or moved somewhere else? This is not the first year this has happened and when the weather dries up we will be left again with hard lumps to walk on and stumble over, the downs is used by many dog walkers all year round, and I am not the only one to think this is wrong. This area has been severely neglected over the past couple of years and it seems the council just doesn’t care anymore,
