Latest news regarding Coronavirus and the 2020 Threshold Trail Series

Threshold Trail Series: COVID 19 Update

Like many of our fellow event organisers, COVID-19 is having a huge effect on the events we can put on for our loyal community of runners and walkers. Scheduled for June and July, the Threshold Trail Series was the backbone of our summer.

Having taken on board all the advice from the UK Government, the World Health Organisation and others, we have made the tough decision to postpone all of the events to 2021. 

The provisional event dates for next year are as follows:

  • Race to the Tower:   5-6th June 2021 
  • Race to the King:      19-20th June 2021
  • Race to the Castle:   26-27th June 2021
  • Race to the Stones:  10-11th July 2021

This is not a decision we have taken lightly, but after detailed discussion and listening to feedback from you the participants, we believe it is the best option to protect the interests of everyone involved, including the general public. We strongly believe we all have a responsibility to tackle this challenge together. The pressure on the core Threshold team and our wider network of incredible suppliers has never been greater as we look to respond to a rapidly changing situation. Our aim remains to make the 2021 series the best yet, just a little later than we all hoped. 


The options available to you  

We are doing everything we can to support our participants, our amazing network of suppliers and our team as things change around us.

We are automatically deferring all registrations to the 2021 events for no cost. If you cannot make those dates, you can find further details around options available to you on your participant platform linked below, including information for charity participants. We understand everyone’s situation is different and so we hope the options available seem fair.   

Once again, we thank you for the understanding so many of you have shown to date. Every kind word and note of support makes a massive difference as we do our best to navigate these difficult times. 

We hope to see many of you at one of our events next year and in the meantime please look after yourselves and others.
