As confirmed in our COVID-19 update statements last week, we have decided to postpone the 2020 Brecon Carreg Cardiff Bay Run until Sunday 15th November to help control the spread of the virus and safeguard our runners, spectators, volunteers and event staff.
If you were registered for the 2020 race on 29 March (the 10K or 2K Family Fun Run) we can now confirm the options available to you and how to proceed with them.
Please note, you can only select one of the following three options:
The rescheduled Brecon Carreg Cardiff Bay Run will take place on Sunday 15th November. If you would like to take up this option, you do not need to do anything. Your entry has already been transferred to the new date and you will receive a race pack and race information about one week before the event.
If you’re unable to attend the rescheduled event on Sunday 15th November, you will soon be able to transfer your place to another runner and receive a refund.
We will be re-opening our transfer service on Tuesday 7th April, and will waive the usual £5.80 transfer fee.
We will send out another email with detailed instructions on transferring closer to the re-opening of our transfer service on 7th April, including details on how we will support runners in finding someone to transfer to. All transfers must be conducted through our online registration platform ACTIVE – which is set up to ensure you do not need to share personal or payment information – just a transfer link.
If you cannot make the new event date in November, would like not like to transfer to someone else or simply want to complete the distance, you can choose to participate virtually instead. Please note that if you take up this virtual option your entry into the rescheduled November event (which has been automatically transferred) will be cancelled.
Click the button below for details on how to (safely) participate virtually and submit your evidence to us through our online registration system, ACTIVE.
You will have between today and midnight on Sunday 5th April to submit your evidence – a screenshot or photo of an app such as Strava, a GPS tracker or a picture of home gym equipment.
Once the virtual event participation window has closed we will pack and post medal and t-shirts to all of those who have successfully submitted evidence (please note, 2K runners will only receive a medal). We will endeavour to have these with you as soon as possible in current circumstances and keep you updated on when you can expect them.
We would like to thank all runners for their cooperation and understanding and hope you are keeping safe and well in these difficult times.
