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 will be automatically transferred to the new dates – which will be confirmed as soon as possible, hopefully by the end of August. Once the revised dates are confirmed the option of a voucher or a refund minus a booking fee charged by Si Entries will be made available for a 7 day period for those entrants that are unable to attend the new dates. We will provide all entrants with further information on how to do this via email and on our website once the new dates are finalised.

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!

Kind regards
