Covid-19 Big Cheese Postponement
In response to the escalating situation with Covid-19 it is with great regret that we have decided to postpone the Big Cheese 2020 on the 29th March to a date later this year.
As I hope you appreciate this is not a decision we have taken lightly, but we had to consider the health and well-being of our Runners and all of our Volunteers.
In addition to all of those directly involved in the race we also had to consider the potential impact of 300+ runners coming to Cheddar and the affect that might have on the local community and our relationship with it. These events are partially allowed to go ahead on goodwill and something we can’t underestimate.
The new date for the Big Cheese 2020 is the 22nd November and all runners will be automatically transferred to this new date.
If you cannot or do not want your place to be transferred a full refund will be available for a limited time period. Therefore If you would like a full refund please contact us at email@example.com by the 17th April so that we can start processing the refunds and start planning for November.
Our sincere apologies and we hope you understand. Stay safe and hopefully see you in November
