OMM Festival - OMM Bike
CORONAVIRUS UPDATE: Dear Competitor,
With the uncertain times we all have ahead of us, it is with great disappointment that we are cancelling the OMM Festival at Cannock Chase.
We hope you are staying healthy, looking after yourself and others by respecting the 2m social distancing instruction. We’re in this together – and like a Mountain Marathon, we’re all looking forward to that hug when we’ve crossed the finish line.
At this stage the OMM Alps, OMM Japan and 53rd OMM are all planning to go ahead. PLEASE continue to enter these events as this will help us immensely to keep going. We guarantee a full refund if we do need to cancel these events.
We have incurred costs in arranging the festival but we want you to have a full refund. Please check your inbox for information about arranging your refund.
Thank you all again for your continued support. Please look after each other and stay healthy.
Any questions please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01524 548040
