COVID-19 INFORMATION

We are working hard behind the scenes to ensure we can deliver an awesome event experience at Trail Pursuit. While the world is ever-changing, we are taking steps to ensure the event will go ahead as planned in May. We understand that you may have some concerns on booking for the event while restrictions continue to change throughout the UK and the world, be assured we are working closely with our partners to make sure we are doing all we can. As a team, we continue to work remotely, only conducting face to face meetings where it's safe to do so, while remaining hopeful that we will all be in a better and safer place by the time the event comes around. We are working on a framework for a COVID secure Trail Pursuit and restrictions may be added to ensure a safe event for all. All restrictions will be shared with runners prior to the event. In the unlikely event of cancellation, we have plans in place to roll the Trail Pursuit weekend in its entirety over to 2022. Should this be necessary, please be assured we will communicate any decisions or actions taken in a timely manner that should not inconvenience our entrants. If Trail Pursuit 2021 is cancelled for any reason, the runners ticket will be deferred to the following year.
