Walters Opticians Gainsborough Morton Fun Run

March 21, 2020

Firstly, thank you for entering the fun run 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 and fun run will now take place on Sunday 15th November 2020.

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 e mail with your name and address. We would encourage anyone taking up this option to post your pics on social media. If you take up this option we will remove your entry off the start list. The strict deadline to do this will be 21st 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. Any financial agreement is between you and the new runner, not us! Please follow >>> Transfer Instructions

If you wish to directly move your entry to the 2021 race on Sunday 28th March free of charge you can do so by immediately e mailing Results Base on You must state your full name, e mail, order ID and the name of the event you wish to transfer from and the fact you wish to transfer to 2021. The subject line must say Walters Oticians Gainsborough Morton Fun RunThe strict deadline to do this will be 21st April 2020.

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
