I’m sure people will be wondering and hoping about the Ben Nevis Race this year. The committee will be making a final decision in early May.
We will be in touch with all the runners through SiEntries once a decision is made and we shall also issue a statement.
Even though this years race was cancelled we decided to still hold our race day draw. Congratulations to the winner Mrs P Hamilton, No.127, £1000.
Winner of the monthly draw for September was Mr C Wood, No.69, £75.
The committee have had a virtual meeting and in the light of the Coronavirus pandemic we have made the very difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Ben Nevis Race. While all our work was focused on having the event, we must prioritise the health and wellbeing of participants and their families, as well as the army of helpers and volunteers needed for race day. With limitations on gatherings still being implemented it was felt the only responsible decision was to cancel the event this year.
Emails have been sent out via SiEntries please follow the link and instructions carefully.
PLEASE NOTE: We will not be issuing invitations to anyone on the waiting list until early next year (date to be decided). You will be offered a place before we consider opening the entries to anyone else. We feel that under the circumstances this is the fairest that we can be.
We apologise for the inconvenience our decision causes and we thank everyone for their continued support. We hope to see you next year.
I know that many people are wanting to know about this year’s race and if it is going ahead. We are making our final decision this week, please look for an email from SiEntries towards the end of this week/beginning of next week as this is the quickest way to contact everyone. Once this email has been sent out we will update everyone on our facebook page and our website
PLEASE READ TO THE END.
All of the invitations have been sent out. If you have received an invite can you please check that you are on the entry list. YOU MUST REMEMBER TO SAVE AND CONFIRM YOUR PAYMENT. You will receive an email from SiEntries confirming your payment (as long as you aren’t blocking emails from sientries.co.uk).
There are a few invitations still to be accepted from the first batch that were sent out and this runs out at midnight on the 12th March. If places aren’t accepted by then you will be placed back on the waiting list and the place will be offered to the next person on the waiting list.
