All 2020 Events Cancelled
I hope you're well and enjoying the summer weather.
Sadly we are announcing today that both the remaining events this year will be cancelled due to Covid-19. It may come as no surprise but we have made the difficult decision due to the level of uncertainty and risk surrounding public gatherings.
Over the last few months we have meticulously planned to introduce large scale safety measures to enable the events to go ahead but unfortunately at this current time there is still so much out of our hands and we feel the risk is just too high.
In my opinion it would be irresponsible for us to try and go ahead with the virus still very much a threat to the safety of our runners, staff, event partners and spectators and anyone else who could potentially be impacted as a result.
So here is what will happen next:
In 1-2 weeks' time all runners will receive an email explaining the choices you have with your tickets. If you are part of a pack, your leader will have the power to make changes for you. There will be 4 options and the email will contain further information and key links but here are the options for you to start considering now:
Option 1: Let us defer your place/s into next year. You will automatically move to the season you originally booked for 2020. If you’re happy with the 2021 dates you don’t need to do anything.
Option 2: You can select to move to any 2021 event of your choice. So for example - If you had booked the June event, but the dates don’t work for you, then you can select to change to say, September’s event. You can do this by clicking the link in the upcoming email and make your decision.
Option 3: You can choose to have a credit voucher. Perhaps none of next year’s dates work for you or maybe you’re not ready to commit to an event yet. If this is the case you can choose a credit voucher. This is done by following the link in the email, which will take you to your profile and then by selecting ‘Credit Voucher’. A ticket code will be generated, which you can then use to enter any event of your choice in the future.
Option 4: You can apply for a refund.
For those of you looking to request a refund, I would like to kindly ask that if there is ANY way you can hold onto your ticket, it will be a massive lifeline to the Wolf Run and we will be forever grateful. Like many events we have been heavily impacted by this virus and for us to survive we now need your support, if at all possible.
We have done everything we can to reduce our costs and overheads and seek financial support from the government where possible. I completely understand that some of you have been greatly affected by the virus, so if you are also in a desperate situation then we understand that you will apply for a refund. However, if you are able to hold on, as a THANK YOU for your kind support, we will give you free Gold Membership until the end of 2021, which includes benefits such as large discounts on future events and merchandise along with monthly newsletters containing training advice and offers from our partners.
Next year’s events will see a price increase and of course we will keep your tickets at 2020 prices.
It’s devastating to be in a position where we are unable to put on events but the virus certainly has put things into perspective and I hope you understand our decision. We live and breathe the Wolf Run but I’m well aware it pales into insignificance to the crisis some people are currently facing.
Please await the email in 1-2 weeks and in the meantime stay safe and thank you for taking the time to read this. I wish you all the best,
The Wolf Run
