September 2020 events postponed 

 

Due to ongoing restrictions relating to the virus and particularly in our case the organising of mass participation events it is with a mixture of frustration and regret that we now have to announce the postponement of all the Dark & White events taking place this coming September. This includes the Battle of Bradfield (BOB) Sportive on the 6th and the first round of the Autumn Trail Run Series on the 20th.

 

Of course when we originally postponed events in the Spring at the start of lockdown we had every hope and belief that events would be taking place again by September. However the way this pandemic has developed has been far worse than any of us could have imagined and despite there being signs of improvements leading to the relaxing of some restrictions, it has not yet reached a level that allows a mass participation event to take place in a public environment.

 

In making our decision we have liaised with the relevant governing bodies (British Cycling and England Athletics) plus we have carefully considered the potential impact not just on all the participants and event staff involved but also on the local communities, landowners and the emergency services. 

 

All current pre-entrants for these two events now have the following options – Transfer entry to new date – Voucher equal to entry fee to be used against any future Dark & White Events – Refund minus a booking fee charged by Si Entries. We will provide all entrants further information on how to do this via email and on our websites within the next week.

 

We will continue to monitor things closely in the hope that things will improve enough so that we can resume events from October onwards and we will provide a regular update via Facebook and our websites to keep you updated. 

 

In the meantime wherever possible do your best to keep running, cycling and generally keeping fit!

Round 1 - TBC - Peak District - Sunday 20th September 2020

The 6th running of the Dark & White Autumn Trail Run Series – four rounds of classic trail running all in and around the Peak District National Park. There is a choice of a long (14-17km) or short (5-8km) course at each round. 

Using our tried and tested formula of designing courses in conjunction/liaison with the rangers at the Peak District National Park in some of the most spectacular and scenic areas of the Peaks we will hopefully introduce you to some new tracks, trails and places which you didn’t even know existed! Wherever possible we aim for the courses to be as close to 100% off road as possible in quiet countryside away from main roads, traffic, crowds, congestion, noise etc. All we want you to see, hear and experience is Peak District trail running at its very best.

For all event details including route, kit requirements, start times etc see trailrunningpeaks.co.uk/autumn-series/

On each event expect:

  • A clearly signed/arrowed route
  • A feed-station providing juice, water and snacks/nutritional products (long route only)
  • A detailed colour route map provided including emergency numbers
  • SPORTident chip timing for an instant post-event time
  • Refreshments at the finish 
  • Gold, silver and bronze awards based on your finishing time. Separate women award times

Younger runners under 17 may enter the short course but entry depends on their age and course distance and they must be accompanied throughout the event by a parent/guardian who must be age 20+ – **contact the organisers prior to entering for more details**.
