Information about continuation of XTERRA NETHERLANDS 2020
Velp, May 1, 2020 – For us as an event organization, it is an uncertain time regarding the prospects of whether or not events can take place in mid 2020. It is currently clear that no events can take place until September 1. What the period from September 1 will look like regarding events, is currently not clear at all. For now we are working with a positive scenario in which restrictive measures around the Covid-19 crisis will be phased out during summer and outdoor events can be organised again in September this year.
XTERRA NETHERLANDS will continue as planned according to the current programme. But of course we cannot give any guarantees about this at the moment. In this light, we will continue to prepare for the event and registration for participants remains open.
We will make the final decision on 1 July whether the event, with the measures and prospects applied at that time, can continue. If there is still a lot of uncertainty about the period from 1 September in mid-June and if there are still restrictive measures and / or no clarity for the rest of the year, we will decide to cancel the event. We need the time from July 1 to get the organisation surrounding the event done in order to offer the participants a full XTERRA event.
If you have already registered or are still planning to register, this is in accordance with the Terms and Conditions as published on the website, from the opening of registration on 1 January 2020. You can wait and see how the restrictions and general guidelines regarding the corona crisis develop and register with more positive messages regarding the event or wait and register after July 1 once the event has been confirmed completely.
We are currently unable to make any further commitments regarding any cancellation allowances, but we will of course consider this in the current situation and will communicate this to registered athletes as soon as a decision has been made.
For now: Stay healthy and think about each other so that we can look forward to beautiful sports experiences as soon as possible.
