The Chiltern Ridge has been postponed 😞

It is with great sadness that we have to announce the postponement of the Chiltern Ridge Half & Ultra Trail on May 9th.

Although we are many weeks away from race day it's clear that the current situation will not have returned to normal by May and therefore the event has become untenable on many levels.

We are extremely thankful that you have supported our race and we want to find the best way forward for all runners who have entered.

With all things considered, we are offering you four alternative options to choose from to facilitate the next step:

Option 1 – Run the Chiltern Ridge Half & Ultra in October 2020
We are provisionally planning to hold the event on 3rd October 2020, but this date will remain provisional until until we can guarantee the safety of all participants and staff. Once the outlook for the autumn is clear we will lock this in.

Option 2 – Run in 2021
Transfer your entry to next year's event, the provisional date for this is 8th May 2021.

Option 3 – Transfer to the Eden Valley Ultra Trail
For those running our 50km you can transfer to our other 50km ultra which will be held on September 12th 2020 in Kent - edenvalleyrace.com

Option 4 – Enter another race in the future
We can issue you with a voucher to use against any of our races or events in the future.

To transfer your entry please click the button below and fill in the short form – Please aim to do this by April 1st

Why no refunds?
With less than two months until race day we have incurred significant costs to date and offering refunds would most likely end up bankrupting the company – We're a small team just starting out and this is the reality of the situation.

We very much hope one of the four options works for you. Ultimately you entered the race because you want to run it and we can promise that whether it's in October, next year or some other time you are welcome on our start line!

If you would like to speak to our race director further about any of our options please email [email protected].

All the best,
Chris & Runaway Racing team
