Here is the finisher’s medal from the Sheffield Half Marathon that was supposed to be held on April 6, 2014 in Sheffield, England.

Organisers cancelled the event citing a safety risk and said that a water company did not deliver the required water supplies.
In a statement they said: “It is with huge disappointment and regret that we have been forced to cancel this year’s race due to a problem with the delivery of water.
“We would like to express our sincerest apologies to everyone involved in the race who will be affected.”
