We're delighted that we now have the green light for our events to start taking place again and have started actioning the things we've been thinking about during lockdown so that everyone will be safe and we can maintain the amazing atmosphere you've come to expect from a Lakeland Trails event. We're going to do so much more than just wear PPE and regularly clean/ sanitize areas!
We expect guidance to change as restrictions continue to ease so we'll be monitoring that carefully and adapting as necessary. Before each event, we'll publish a version of Final Details which will inform you of everything we're doing differently to normal and how you can help.
A few of the changes which we'll be looking at are:
You'll be able to play your part by providing us with any extra information we may need to implement all of this and enjoying yourself on the day!
Most of these adaptions will have a significant cost implication, and some of our costs have already increased by over 50% since the Ultra and Hawkshead haven't taken place and we've lost volume discounts.
We'd rather see you at the events than not at all and we know that it's been a tough year for many people so we're not going to increase our entry fees but will give you the option to chip into a voluntary 'covid supplement' when you enter. A couple of pounds would make a huge difference if you're able to support us.
We're raring to go and look forward to seeing you in Keswick on 5th September!
