We have been closely monitoring the situation and the changing guidance from the government, councils, venues and other event organisers. The current restrictions in place are making organisation an impossibility and with the uncertainty moving forward it would be irresponsible of us not to acknowledge the impact this is having on events. Over the past few months, we’ve worked hard, and in close consultation with our medical teams, local authorities and key partners to try and find a way to run events which both observes social distancing rules, and, crucially, doesn’t impact on our local NHS. In particular the use of the footpaths, public highways and sports centres is in question with many of the services we use for our events currently closed.
We had hoped to hold the events later in the year. But, as things stand, and even as the situation improves, it isn’t going to be possible to meet these goals with any certainty, and so, we have concluded that the best course of action is to postpone events until 2021. This will only affect limited competitors as many have already taken the decision to transfer to 2021.
Entrants will automatically transfer to the new date on our system and therefore no further action is needed. The provisional dates will be confirmed as soon as possible.
The events are hugely popular with many taking part raising money for charity and the event itself donating money to local clubs and services. Please rest assured that we will deliver a safe and enjoyable events for all. We know how disappointing this is, but we feel this decision gives some clarity moving forward in these difficult and unsure times. We’re sure everyone will understand why this decision has been made and we thank you.
Please follow government advice when exercising, stay safe and look after each other.
