We are happy to get straight to the point, as announcements of this type start with several paragraphs about how serious Covid is… we all know that already.
We are bumping along all three 2020 events into 2021.
We have kept the door open as long as possible. We always said we would only run the events if it is legal, safe, and will not make us all look like dicks (the first rule of the Dirt Dashes). However, a combination of restrictions, risks, guidelines and permissions not being granted mean we will be rolling everything into 2021.
If you have signed up to 2020, you don’t need to do anything. Your entry has been automatically rolled on to the 2021 event. The dates are as follows:
- Wales Dirt Dash: 1/2 May 2021 (Early May Bank Holiday Weekend)
- Dorset Dirt Dash 50/50: 29/30 May 2021 (Spring Bank Holiday Weekend)
- Dorset Dirt Dash 100: 30 May 2021 (Spring Bank Holiday Weekend)
- Dunoon Dirt Dash: 25/26 September 2021
We would appreciate seeing everyone of you next year. If you need to cancel your entry and want to request a refund, please send us an email to markus (at) dirtdash (dot) cc with your full name and event, and we will process this as soon as possible. It will take a few days for the money to make it back to your account. For a refund, please notify us at the latest by the 5 September 2020. If you can’t attend and want to donate your entry, please let us know too. Please do NOT contact us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, only by email. This will make sure we can deal with enquiries much more efficiently.
If the new dates don’t work but you want to swap from one event to another, we will try our best to accommodate you. Please note due to the difference in entry fees, an additional fee of £40 will be charged if you change from the Dorset 100 to an overnight event.
We really cannot wait until 2021, and look forward to many miles, hundreds of smiles, great adventures and a few post rides beers.
Sincerely, thank you for being part of this, being patient, and staying cool.
Thanks also to our sponsors Surly Bikes, Wildcat, komoot, The Overland, Rawvelo, Outdoor Provisions and Calmac Ferries.
