Decline in Races - Why is this happening?

Many will have seen a recent announcement that the Highland Fling maybe following the demise of so many other races with even the Mont and the Kowalski coming to an end this year. I'd be interested in what people think as to why these things are happening. Is it:
1. These races are run for profit and not volunteers and therefore are prone to declines in sponsorship?
2. That people are changing habits and want to do more downhill when these races are marathon by nature?
3. That we're not promoting the sport enough?
4. That the races were just not that enjoyable?

Half Fling Profile

Does anyone know roughly how many meters of climbing there is in the half-fling course? I think the full fling is around 2400m or so, I've always assumed the half had about 1200m of climbing.

Accomodation available for Highland Fling

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

Hi

Do you and your family need accommodation for the Highland Fling?

We have hired out the Bundanoon Youth Hostel and one room (sleeping up to 6 people) has become available. You'll be joining 9 other families, this is the 3rd year we've done this, and you'll be sure to have a great time.

Cost is $310 per room or per family. That's for 3 nights Friday, Saturday and Sunday night. We've got plenty of activities planned for the kids.

If you're keen call me on 0403 816 666 ASAP.

We expect this will be snapped up so be quick.

Cheers

Paul

Highland Fling Full Fling Ticket Up For Sale

I have 1 full fling ticket up for sale.

Two weekends ago I ran 150k over 4 days to raise funds for a school for Autism in Gladesville NSW and during this I aggravated an already exsisting injury which will now take me out of the fling this year. I know I shouldn't have run but that event is very important to me as I have completed it for the last 4 years and i would have to have a leg fall off for me not to do it. I had hoped for this injury to come good but it's a bit more than what I thought and I'll be out for a couple of months now.
