After much deliberation, The TenFoot Swim Committee are deeply saddened to have to announce the cancellation of the 2021 Swim Events. Due to the ongoing challenges and uncertainty surrounding the Pandemic, committee members feel that they are unable to meet the required levels of safety to successfully host the events.
This news is even more poignant, as it would have been the first NHS MonkFoot Swim in recognition of the wonderful work that members of The NHS have undertaken during this Pandemic.
Event’s Chairman, Chris Williams commented, “As you know, The TenFoot Committee is made up of volunteers, who raise much needed funds for nominated charities as a not-for-profit group. Since its inception in 2017, the events have raised in excess of £65,000 for worthwhile causes and we have prided ourselves on the mantra, of making ‘safety’ our number one priority. The safety of our entrants, volunteers, supporters, event partners and sponsors must come first. We all have a duty to keep each other safe.”
“Whilst we are unable to support this year’s nominated charities (Motor Neurone Disease Association) (Guide Dogs for the Blind Association) (Get The Boys a Lift), they will remain our focus for 2022, when we will return, Bigger & Better.”
Committee members would like to thank everyone linked to the events for their continued support, without which, they would not take place and would not be the success they have become.
Following this announcement, entrants will be contacted, and arrangements made to refund 100% of their entrance fee. This will also include an offer for paid entrants and NHS participants to secure a place for the 2022 events (date to Follow).
Further details surrounding this offer will be communicated via The TenFoot Swim web site and Facebook Page, when the 2022 event goes live later this year.
Stay safe and we look forward to seeing you in 2022.
