CORONAVIRUS/COVID 19 UPDATE - EVENT CANCELLED






Update 24/03/2020: Refunds will be issued later this week. An email will go out prior to the issue of the refund to ask if anyone would prefer to donate their entry fee to Longtown Mountain Rescue Team.


Following Government advice, also the LDWA and Ramblers advise the same (https://www.ldwa.org.uk/ and https://www.ramblers.org.uk/volunteer-zone/coronavirus.aspx), this year's THREE PEAKS TRIAL IS CANCELLED.  Also due to the current uncertainty with how long the pandemic is going to last  we will be unable to re-schedule the walk this year but it will return on Saturday 27th March 2021 when we hope you can make it then. We'll sort refunds over the coming days. 

We appreciate that people will be disappointed the event won't be rescheduled. So, as it looks like many organized events won't return for some time, we're currently looking at the feasibility of an 'anytime' Three Peaks Trial Club challenge, preliminary details are shown on http://threepeakstrial.co.uk/club.htm and we'll email details once this event is confirmed.
