19 March 2020
Following the latest Government advice relating to the spread of COVID-19, we have taken the decision to postpone Weybridge 10k – which was scheduled for Saturday 14 June 2020.
Rising to challenges is at the very essence of both organising and participating in sports events like the Weybridge 10k. Despite causing major disruption to our event plans (and business in general) we intend to fully embrace the changes that we are having to make to accommodate the official advice and these peculiar circumstances.
We understand that September and October, in particular, are becoming increasingly populated with postponed events. In an effort to reduce date clashes as much as possible, we have chosen to postpone Weybridge 10k to the off-peak month of December; embracing a new winter theme and whatever challenges the weather throws at us! We hope this decision will enable runners to attend as many of their favourite (postponed) events as possible and – in doing so – support a variety of organisers who are all facing tough times at the moment. So without further ado, we are rather excited to introduce the Winter Weybridge 10k!
The Winter Weybridge 10k will take place on Sunday 6 December 2020 (pending Surrey County Council’s approval) and feature some fun winter theming – whether that be Fit with Frank in a Santa outfit, DJ Patrick pumping the Christmas bangers or perhaps even a Mulled Wine cart at the finish line. Like the sound of that?
All participants will be automatically registered to participate in the Weybridge 10k on Sunday 6 December. If this new date is not suitable for you, we have provided 2 further options for you…
1. Participate in Winter Weybridge 10k on Sunday 6 December 2020
No further action is required for registered participants. All registered participants will automatically be registered to participate in Winter Weybridge 10k (unless virtual run / 2021 participation is preferred).
Going above and beyond what we are usually able to deliver in the instance of event postponement, we aim to provide as much flexibility as is reasonably possible for our valued customers in providing 2 further alternative options for participants affected by the postponement.
2. Participate in Weybridge 10k virtually on Saturday 14 June 2020
If you know that you still want to go running on Saturday 14 June, consider participating virtually – please know that in doing so you will be massively supporting aat: events through these challenging and uncertain times.
– Register to participate virtually by Saturday 14 June.
– Run 10km anytime from Friday 12 June – Monday 15 June and record it on Strava or similar. There are no rules for how or where you complete your choice of distance.
– Send us evidence of your run by 1 July 2020 and we will post out your medal free of charge.
3. Participate in Weybridge 10k on Saturday 13 June 2021
We understand that the new date may not be convenient and apologise if this is the case for you. If you would prefer to transfer your entry to 2021, please contact us by 31 April 2020 and we will arrange this for you free of charge.
As per the T&Cs you agree to when registering to participate in aat events, “where our events have to be cancelled, delayed or postponed due to circumstances outside our reasonable control, we are not liable for any inconvenience, expenses, costs losses or damages suffered by participants”.
It is with regret that we have had to postpone and cancel events in order to adhere to Government advice regarding COVID-19 and that we are unable to offer refunds to participants registered for affected events like Weybridge 10k. However, it is our intention to support our customers as much as is reasonably possible in these extraordinary circumstances; we are going above and beyond what we can usually offer in the instances of event postponement to offer our customers a range of options to best cater for their individual needs.
“We understand that it’s a difficult time for everyone right now. Small businesses – and all business operating in the events industry – are in survival mode right now. Your cooperation and understanding at this time will enable us to continue delivering the events you love for years to come. Thanks for your support.” – Toby Jenkins, Managing Director.
