As the dust settles on the Government's most recent announcement (18th August) regarding the new restrictions on outdoor and indoor sporting activities, it is with great disappointment that we must announce the postponement of EcoTrail Wicklow 2020 to 25th September 2021
Please bear with us over the coming days as we try to put an alternative challenge in place for you. This event will of course be totally optional and will not affect in any way your place being held for next year´s race, or your refund if requested.
Firstly, we would like to say thank you to all of you who signed up for this September´s race. We have been following with great excitement all of the training reports that have been coming in to us and we know that for many of our runners, race day was going to be the reward for months of hard work.
Secondly, all of the EcoTrail Wicklow organising team have kept spirits high since March, looking forward to hosting a great event for everyone and working hard to do so. We would also like to say thank you to all of the EcoTrail Wicklow family, sponsors and friends for their work and support.
All 2020 entries will be automatically transferred to our 2021 edition when hopefully the country will be in a much better place regarding Covid-19.
If you would like to support our event and hold your place until 2021, you do not need to do anything. Your place is guaranteed with no further action needed.
With your 2021 entry you will retain the option of a free name change up to end of August 2021 in case training, life or something else prevents your participation.
If you want to request a refund of your race entry, please send us an email to email@example.com titled "EcoTrail Wicklow Refund Request" before Friday September 4th.
Refunds will be processed once all refunds requests have been received in early September.
Finally, we have already received requests from many runners asking for possible ways to complete the race even though it may not be on race day and as originally planned. We are currently brainstorming different ways, which are strictly within Government guidelines, to host an EcoTrail "2020 Challenge" on various parts of our original course over a set period of time in September.
Costs to participate will be deliberately kept low to encourage participation as we know many have trained for the past number of months with the Eco Trail Wicklow as their goal and we really want to try to find a way to facilitate this and showcase the great trails we have in Wicklow.
Please bear with us over the coming days as were put an alternative plan in place.
This event will be optional and will not affect in any way your place being held for next year´s race, or your refund if required.
Many thanks to everyone again for your continued support of our Eco Trail Wicklow event. Please stay safe and healthy over the coming weeks and we will be in touch again shortly.
