2021 Events Update!
So our plans for our events in 2020 didn’t quite turn out as we’d planned thanks to the global pandemic! We are aware that you are all keen to be back racing as soon as possible so here is an update on what we’re hoping to do with our events next year.
At the moment we are planning for the duathlon and the 10k run to go ahead. We are in the process of submitting detailed plans and risk assessments to the local council and governing sports bodies. It is only if these are accepted and authorised that we will be able to go ahead. Of course, a lot can change between now and the event dates and we have to accept that we may do a lot of work for the Covid situation to change things at the last minute. However, we are confident that we can deliver these two events in a Covid safe way, although this of course means that they won’t be run in quite the same way as we’re used to.
There is a set of guidelines for our planned events that we would ask you to look at. The provisional dates are 21st March 2021 for the duathlon and 2nd June 2021 for the 10k run. We will do everything we can to deliver the events on those dates but may of course have to change them depending on the Covid situation nearer the time.
We will also do our best to put on the aquathlon and triathlon, however at the moment the pool at Morton is closed. Until this reopens obviously we are unable to hold these events, however we will keep you updated as soon as we have any news.
If you entered the duathlon this year, we will be emailing you soon to outline your options for 2021 events. We will also be contacting the contestants who entered the aquathlon and were unable to make the postponed date.
We look forward to 2021 being a great year for the club even if it is with a few adjustments as we all get used to the new normal!
