2020 ST. IVES BIATHLON – SATURDAY 6 JUNE 2020 CANCELLED

 

We have been closely monitoring the ongoing developments surrounding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) both globally and here in the UK, and after carefully considering all the information and guidance available, we have taken the decision to cancel this year’s Biathlon.

 

Naturally, we’re extremely disappointed that this year’s Biathlon has been cancelled, but with the rapidly changing developments in recent weeks and days, our primary interest must be the health and wellbeing of everyone.

 

We considered all options, including postponing the Biathlon until later in the year – However, with the increasing uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, together with diminishing daylight hours later in the year, realistically this was not an option.

 

Over the next week or so, we will be contacting everyone who has already entered for this year’s Biathlon to arrange repayment of the pre entry costs.  We will also be making arrangements with our supporting donors and fundraisers, who for many years, have generously supported the St. Ives Biathlon.

 

Finally, we would like to thank all our sponsors, event organisers and volunteers for all their hard work and dedication in the run-up to this year’s Biathlon.
