Dear Runner

Unfortunately due to the current COVID-19 restrictions we are not able to hold this event as originally scheduled.

I have rescheduled a new date for the race: Tuesday 27th July 2021.

These are your options:

1. Do nothing – in this case your race entry will be automatically valid for the new date.  We’ll all meet up on a sunny evening in July, it will be lovely.

2. Transfer your entry to another runner.  Login to your NiftyEntries account, select this event and use the [Transfer] button.  This option is open until 2 days before the race.

3. Request a refund.  Login to your NiftyEntries account, select this event and use the [Refund] button.  You will receive 80% of your entry fee.  This option is open until 1 week before the race.  The difference covers the event costs incurred including the booking fee (unlike many other races our entry cost is inclusive of booking fee).  You could of course instead sell your entry privately to another runner – in which case use 2. Transfer.

Obviously everyone’s plans are up in the air at the moment and of course we don’t know whether the further restrictions will be imposed.  For this reason I suggest that most runners sit tight with option 1 for now.  We are charged for transfers and these costs ultimately reduce the proceeds to the charity.

If the COVID-19 restrictions make the July 13th date impossible then we will consider other options.  As an evening race we can’t push back too late into the year even if we bring forward the start time.  If necessary the race will be deferred yet again to 2022.

I would like to thank our fantastic sponsors RunNorthWest and our hosts Owen House Wedding Barn for their support.  Also our First Aid supplier Events Medical Team who have been very understanding.  It is a difficult time for all three of these businesses.

In the meantime stay safe and enjoy your training.  We look forward to a return to normal life and enjoying a little race around the runway.
