Due to recent government announcements surrounding COVID-19 and the unprecedented challenges facing the nation, committee members have taken the sad, yet rightful decision to cancel this year’s annual TenFoot Swim ; Swim/Run ; FootStep Run (2020) Events.
Event’s Chairman, Chris Williams said, “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. This year we are all facing uncertain and unprecedented challenges in a fast-moving situation. COVID-19 presents serious risks to health and 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 2021, 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 entry fee.
Chris went onto thank all participants for entering this year’s events and said, “I was taking part myself, in the Swim/Run and I encourage you not to put your hard training to waste, why not enter for July 2021, and make it an event to remember.”
On behalf of the TenFoot Committee – As a token of our appreciation and in recognition of our wonderful NHS Staff, we would like to offer NHS staff, free entry for the July 2021 Events.
Further details surrounding this offer will be communicated via The TenFoot Swim web site and Facebook Page, when the 2021 event goes live later this year.
Stay safe and we look forward to seeing you in 2021.
