Event Date: Sunday 5th April
second New First Spring Adventure Race
A Statement from Adam following these uncertain times,
No-one can be sure where these uncertain times are heading, but as you can imagine, it is having a huge impact on the events industry. Especially at a time when it is good for us to get outside in the fresh air and do exercise to benefit our own mental and physical health.
So, with Mickleham scheduled for Sunday 5th April and numbers currently very low, I am thinking of trying something different – a no-frills outside rolling start approach to this event with a start window of 08:30-13:00 for 2 hour events and 08:30-10:30 for the 4 hour event. There will be access to the car park where we will also have HQ, and the Village Hall will only be available for the toilets. The process will be simple to minimise contact and the gathering of people. Turn up, receive a cleaned dibber and map from a desk in the car park and then you can start when you are ready from an isolated start box. I am thinking of offering both 2 and 4-hour events, and not the mini-trail events (as these use the clippers). So, there will be racking on the grass section for your bikes. Afterwards, you will finish and immediately download in the car park before heading home. There will be no prizes, and no tea or cakes, so you will need to bring your own nibbles and a bottle of water. The results from the day will be available on the website. I have to add that if you feel at all unwell in the lead up to this event, then it is not for you and the advice is to stay away!
I fully appreciate that we are all feeling the pinch with our expenditure during these uncertain times. So, I propose a flat £20 fee in advance for each participant in this event, and £25 on the day via contactless payment. I would also like to reassure you that if the situation changes and we find that this event can’t go ahead, then I will fully 100% refund your entry fee. So, no risk to you.
