Dear Competitors, Sponsors, Supporters and Volunteers of Ras yr Wyddfa / Snowdon International Race,
Firstly, we sincerely hope that you all stay safe, healthy and happy in these difficult and dark times we face across the world.
Due to the critical situation of COVID-19 and how it is affecting our communities in the UK, it is with regret the we at Ras yr Wyddfa / Snowdon International Race sadly announce that we are postponing the 2020 race, and confirm that the 2020 edition of Ras yr Wyddfa / Snowdon International Race will not be held this year.
We always have the safety of our runners, the safety of our volunteers; supporters and of course our community as a priority. We are sure that you will not be surprised by this decision, although we understand and share your disappointment.
We can assure you that all of the Ras yr Wyddfa / Snowdon International Race organising team will work hard to ensure the success of future events and we are all looking forward to welcoming everyone to Llanberis in 2021.
For those planning to compete in 2021, you will not need to re-register when the race entry period re-opens in March 2021.
We will ensure that your entry to the race will automatically transfer to the 2021 Ras yr Wyddfa / Snowdon International Race and no additional payment will be due.
As the Snowdon Race is organized in its entirety by local volunteers we kindly ask that you support the organisers, reduce our workload where possible, and allow us to automatically transfer your application to compete in 2021. If this is not possible for you to run the 2021 race, the name transfer window will be open.
In conclusion, we urge you all to follow Government guidelines and to protect our National Health Service by staying at home and not traveling where the journey is unavoidable and we hope you will be able to continue running where possible – but please remember, our mountains are closed for the time being.
Best wishes to you all. Stay safe, healthy and happy.
We look forward to seeing you all at the 2021 Ras yr Wyddfa / Snowdon International Race.
SNOWDON RACE TEAM
