COVID-19 INFORMATION

After a challenging year for the Mass Participation Events Industry, we were incredibly grateful to welcome runners, joggers and walkers back onto the Threshold Trail Series in 2021.

Throughout the series we incorporated a number of measures to reduce the risk of spread of COVID-19 amongst participants, crew and spectators. As we continue our preparations for the Threshold Trail Series 2022, we wanted to let you know that we will assess whether social distancing measures will be required on events taking place next summer. At this stage, it is clearly too early to tell what will be in place next year, but we will continue to keep all participants informed as we build-up to the events.

For those who took part in 2021, we offered a COVID-19 refund policy, and we are pleased to say that a similar policy will be retained for 2022. The full details of this policy are available in our terms and conditions.
