We have been closely monitoring the situation surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak and the guidance issued by the Government, whilst making arrangements to ensure a safe event experience should the ban on public gatherings be lifted ahead of the 2020 Dell Technologies Management Challenge weekend on 11th to 13th September.
However, it is now clear that although restrictions on movement and social distancing measures may be relaxed ahead of September, it will not be possible to stage the event this year. This decision has been reached jointly with the senior management of Dell Technologies.
Going ahead as planned will risk the spread of the virus and place unnecessary additional strain on emergency services and on the providers of medical support required to safely stage an event of this kind. Current restrictions also mean that accessing the venue and areas of the course to undertake the necessary planning are not possible.
We know that many of you will be disappointed with this news and would’ve been looking forward to attending the event after a period of lockdown, but your health and that of our event staff, suppliers and the wider public is our main priority at this time.
We are confident that we can deliver a bigger and better event on a new date in the late Spring of 2021 and have been working to finalise arrangements. The rescheduled event will take place in either May or June 2021 and we will be in touch again shortly to confirm the new date with you. Your space in the event and additional purchases such as bike hire will be automatically transferred to the new date.
We understand and share your disappointment with this outcome but thank you for your understanding in these difficult and unprecedented circumstances.
Our thoughts remain with those directly affected by COVID-19 and the family and friends of those who have sadly passed away.
With Best Wishes,
Matt Newman and Hywel Lovelock on behalf of the Run 4 Wales Team
