Event Update.

Hi all,
It is with regret but we have taken the decision to cancel this years D33. Our hands are tied to all that is going on at the moment with COVID 19 restrictions and we just can't guarantee the safety of runners, marshals, volunteers and the public.
This probably isn't a massive surprise to many of you.
We have looked at alternative dates but feel there will be too many clashes with other events, so this option is not being pursued.
Previous correspondence from us has spoken about non refunds and no deferrals. We, however, made the decision to hold back on spending money on the event. There will be a FULL refund minus a 50p service charge incurred from EntryCentral?
Refunds should start being received shortly.

In place of the actual race we have thought about putting on a D33 Virtual. This will be pretty informal, with no official entry.

On the weekend of the race from midnight on Friday night to midnight on Sunday night run 33 miles and post your total on the D33 Facebook page.
This should be done in one effort or 2 back to back days (e.g. 20 on Saturday/13 on Sunday).
Please do this following all current guidelines and please, please don't plan rocking up on the Deeside Way on race day to run anyway. As this could jeopardise future events.
There will be spot prizes on offer.
Please send any questions to info@cgm-ultra.co.uk
Again, thanks for all your support towards ours and other local events.
Rod, Adam and Andrew.

Sad but sensible decision. Nicely worded statement. And good that folks can get a refund.

Wow, they've done well to be able to give refunds. Sad but inevitable I'd think.

The D33 was possibly the last race that managed to go ahead last year before lockdown. We were lucky with that. It's a shame though, as the trip up would have been much shorter this year, and I always look forward to a catch-up with my Stonehaven and Aberdeen mates. See you all next year, hopefully.

I think you're right M1nty, and it is a shame because we love catching up with you. We'll hopefully see you before next year, but who knows when. I'm trying to be optimistic, I think we'll get to travel around the UK in the summer like we did last year. Fingers crossed.

I'm not surprised that it's cancelled. I think the residents in Banchory would be rather pissed off if it went ahead, they seem to be pissed off with everything at the moment. Here's hoping for next year.

That’s a shame, though as KimCanRun says, it’s the sensible decision.

I shall be optimistic like M1nty & hopefully see everyone next year.

That's a pity. Would be nice to have one race that carried on uninterrupted, but its a sensible call.

Got something to say?
