North Lincs Half/5k Postponement
March 19, 2020
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 made the decision that the race will not take place as originally planned on Sunday 3rd May. Whilst this will be disappointing to some of you, we know that this decision will arrive with your full support.
We have spent the last few days doing our utmost to ensure that we can re-schedule the race as soon as we feel it is safe to do so. This has been like a big jigsaw puzzle to tie in venue availability, service providers such as traffic management, medical, timing etc We have managed to do so in quick time and the race is now scheduled to take place at 9am on Sunday 16th August.
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 16th August. 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.
