EVENT POSTPONEMENT: YOUR OPTIONS EXPLAINED

We have been pursuing every possible avenue to mitigate the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic on your event calendars, whilst protecting the health of everyone involved, including the general public. However, having taken on board all the advice from the UK Government, the World Health Organisation and others, we have made the tough decision to postpone all of the Threshold Trail Series events to 2021.

The confirmed event date for next year is 5th-6th June 2021.

We appreciate this will be very disappointing for many of you who have already put in significant amounts of training, started raising money for charity and potentially committed to additional costs.

CHARITY PARTICIPANTS

We are in contact with all our charity partners, including non-partner charities. We have asked them to let us know by the end of April if they would like to continue their partnership with us and the part-funding of your place into 2021. If your charity decides not to continue with us, we will be in touch directly to let you know your options.

1. Join us in 2021

We will automatically defer all places to the same event in 2021. If you can make it along, we would love to have you there and this will be a massive help for us as a business.

We will be in touch when the 2021 events go on sale later this year for you to claim your free of charge entry.

We will also refund all your extras such as parking, shuttles, trackers, iTabs or merchandise in the next 3 weeks.

2. Transfer to a different event

If you can’t make those dates, we’re waiving any event transfer fees so you can transfer to another one of the Threshold Trail Series at no cost. 

If this is the option for you, there is no action needed now. We will be in touch when the 2021 events go on sale later this year with instructions on how to do this. The deadline for this option has been extended until 31st December 2020. 

We will also refund all your extras such as parking, shuttles, trackersiTabs or merchandise in the next 3 weeks.  

3. Transfer to a friend

If you can’t make those dates, we’re waiving any participant transfer fees so you can transfer your place to a friend, family member, colleague or total stranger you think would benefit from a spell on the trails. 

If this is the option for you, there is no action needed now. We will be in touch when the 2021 events go on sale later this year with instructions on how to do this. The deadline for this option has been extended until 31st December 2020. 

We will also refund all your extras such as parking, shuttles, trackersiTabs or merchandise in the next 3 weeks. 

4. None of these options work for me

We would love every one of you to be able to join us in 2021 for what we hope will be an unforgettable year back out on the Trails. However, we understand the above options may not work for everyone. Therefore, you also have the option of receiving a 70% refund of your original entry fee.

To claim this, please complete THIS FORM by the 5pm on the 12th June 2020After this date we will revert to the original terms and conditions you signed up to and we will no longer be able to refund your fee. 

Once requested, please allow up to 2 weeks for your refund to be processed.

Live Event Trackers

In partnership with Open Tracking, you can now hire a GPS tracker for the duration of the event!

Your tracker will provide accurate location data, available online for your friends and family to view, so they can see how well you’re progressing along the route. This is NOT linked to your event timing, but it does mean your supporters can see more accurately where you are throughout the event and how close you are to the finish line!
