Event Cancelled
This challenge event is now cancelled due to the worldwide Coronavirus pandemic. Those booked in for the 2020 event have been notified and given a choice of three options: 1. To be sent the walk information by email in May 2020 time frame. 2. To defer registration until the event can be rescheduled. 3. To claim a refund. Discussions will take place regarding a rearranged date for 2020, but in practice it might be 2021 before the event is again put on. We are sorry and disappointed about the enforced cancellation
