Round the Lakes 5 Mile Road Race - CANCELLED
!! This years Race Cancelled !!
Next Race Saturday 6th March 2021
Rhayader Round the Lakes (scroll to end for deferral / refund instructions) Covid-19 Announcement RACE CANCELLATION.
On Wednesday the Government guidelines stipulated hygiene and self-isolation so we hoped that the event would still go ahead. However, everyone must now be aware of the escalation of the situation and the event Committee have taken the regrettable decision to cancel this year’s races. It was a decision not taken lightly, but the decision was to eliminate the risk. Entrants will now be deferred to next year’s race, planned for Saturday 6th March 2021. Once deferred, entrants will be able to refund their place if they wish. Details about this will follow. Cancellation is in line with our cancellation policy (please see section 3 of the race rules http://bit.ly/RTLrules). We have an over-riding responsibility to keep everyone as safe as possible, both you the runners and our amazing volunteers. Sincere apologies & very best regards Derek Price Race Director
Next week, after the Committee meets on Tuesday evening, we will transfer all entries to the 2021 race which will be on Saturday 6th March (all being well). Then we will open the 2021 races to you so that you can use your existing RiderHQ logon to refund your place should you wish. If you are happy to be transferred to the 2021 race, you need do nothing. Please note that there will be a fee to refund to cover costs and in line with our policy (see section 1 of the race rules http://bit.ly/RTLrules) but in view of the current situation deferral to 2021 will be free. Queries via PM or e mail will be answered as quickly as possible but please remember we are a volunteer, non profit Committee who mostly have jobs and run the race because we love running and want to support our community in Rhayader.
