International U18 Mountain Running Cup Cancelled
Sadly it has been necessary for the International U18 Mountain Running Cup, which was to take place in Ambleside in the UK, to be cancelled. Here's a statement from the Chair of the local organising committee, Duncan Richards.
“In light of the growing global unpredictability regarding COVID-19, it is with much regret that the Local Organising Committee of the 2020 International Youth Cup have decided to cancel this year’s event.
The safety and wellbeing of all participants, but especially young athletes, is our priority and the travel/transport and accommodation requirements meant pushing ahead would be a gamble. A gamble we cannot afford to take.
We’re extremely grateful to Jonathan and the WMRA committee for their constant support and encouragement. Myself, as event Director would also like to pass on my appreciation of the massive amount of work the Local Organising Committee, from Ambleside AC, have put in over the last two years, as well as sponsors and supporters.
We are looking into the possibility of staging the event in 2021, however this is at a very early stage and due to the complexity and again uncertainty an announcement will be made later on whether this is possible."
