The middle of October 2020 was due to be the date when the Grinduro express rocketed into mid-Wales and painted the landscape a vivid purple hue. We had hoped to bring the ultimate party:race ratio to the town of Machynlleth, but even though we kept our fingers crossed and made regular offerings to the trail gods, the Covid19 situation has conspired against us.
As event organisers, we’ve got a huge responsibility to make sure all the competitors, local residents and event staff remain safe, but we also need to make sure the spirit of Grinduro continues with an event that is fun and everyone has a great time.
With current UK Covid19 guidelines we just don't feel we can offer the Grinduro experience we pride ourselves on - we are an event about bringing riders together not distancing them.
For this reason, we’ve taken the difficult decision to postpone Grinduro Wales until 2021.
The new date for Grinduro Wales will be Saturday 24th July 2021.
For everyone registered for the 2020 event, we will carry your registration over automatically to the 2021 event. If you can’t participate in Grinduro Wales 2021 you can request a refund.
Refunds for both rider entries and companion tickets (minus the booking fee) will be processed within two weeks after your request has been submitted. Please note that once a refund has been processed it can take up to 5 working days to appear in your account. To request a refund, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and reference number in the subject line. If you have multiple riders on one booking, please specify which riders need to be refunded.
We ask kindly that all riders help us by claiming your refund within a month after receipt of this email - if you do not claim a refund within this time your entry will be automatically transferred to next year. If you believe your age category will change for 2021 please email email@example.com with your booking reference, name and the subject line '(Your Name) Category Change'.
We’re really going to miss seeing you all in October, but we will be back bigger and better than ever in 2021.
Stay safe and see you all on the Grinduro trails next year.
