Gainsborough Morton 10k…new date

March 19, 2020

Dear Runner

Firstly, thank you for entering our race and hope that you and your nearest/dearest are well in these uncertain times. It is great to see that the country is starting to gel together to ensure we all pull through the other side.

At Tape2Tape we are a very small business, who like many others are doing all we can to keep operating through the turbulent times ahead, as we rely on the work we absolutely love to survive. We will also continue the best we can to support our charities, community groups and businesses who we have worked with for several years, as they will also be in need of support.

We have been constantly assessing the situation with regards to all the events we have scheduled in for 2020. Based on information received from Public Health England via our Event Safety Advisory Group, who oversee all events in the locality, we have looked at when we anticipate it will be safe to put the race on and when our various service providers are available. The race calendar for September and October is swamped with re-arranged races, the 10k will now take place on Sunday 15th November 2020 with a 10am start.

We know that despite our best efforts that this date will not suit everyone for a variety of reasons. Due to the unprecedented reasons for postponement we have relaxed our terms and conditions and come up with a list of options which we feel sure will be acceptable.

To assist us with our processes, the default will be that your entry will automatically be carried over to 15th November. If you are happy with this you do not need to do anything more.

If this is not convenient please read on and take action appropriately.

Run a Virtual Race
Some runners have asked if it is possible to crack on and run a virtual race. It absolutely is and what a great idea. If you wish to take up this option we will post your medal out to you, at no additional cost to you.  All you need to do is pop your runner number in the post with your name and address where you want the medal posting to. Postal address to return the bib to is: Tape2Tape, Southlands, Waithe Lane, Brigsley DN37 0RJ. Once received we will post your medal out…..they are amazing! We would encourage anyone taking up this option to post your pics on social media. The strict deadline to do this will be 19th April 2020.

If you wish to transfer your place  to another runner you can now do so free of charge until 9am on Monday 19th October. It is your responsibility to make sure that the new runner receives your number/chip, as new ones will not be issued. Any financial agreement is between you and the new runner, not us! Please follow >>> Transfer Instructions

This is the 3rd race we have had to postpone this week and the 4th this year, thus far the feedback from runners has been heartwarming… Thank you for your kind support.

With some re-adjustments we will all be able to continue with the sport we love and still get out for a run. Let’s look after each other more than we ever have done. A phone call or text message to someone who may be struggling with the changing world will no doubt go a long way…. do it now, it does work.

Thank you for your continued support, take care and we will see you soon.

Best regards

Nicola, Neil and the Tape2Tape Team
